I just read Jean-Claude Racinet's "Falling for Fallacies". My mind is blown, this is the dressage I thought ALL dressage was back in my innocent youth, light handed with the willing cooperation of the horse. As a Forward Seat rider I never got into learning competition dressage because I could never see a way to go from the free forward movement to full collection that did not BREAK the flow of the horse, until I started reading Nuno Oliveira, and now Racinet. I can now see a way to go from full Forward Seat to full collection without compromising my horsie moral code.
If you've read Racinet what are your thoughts on his methods?
