I must confess I know nothing of dressage and training for dressage. I do know what it looks like and have a beautiful creamella that is doing the dance on her own. She pulls back her head lifts her tail and does the dance to get my attention I have no idea how to get the moves on command and am not sure if I should even pursue this line of training any advise would be appreciated
