I am really interested in dressage for the simple fact that I know it would improve my riding ability. I am thinking of taking some lessons and maybe eventually (far into the future) doing some schooling shows. However, I have this idea in my head that the dressage crowd is slightly more pretentious than the hunter crowd. Not sure where I got that idea, but I'm almost scared to get involved because I really hate the snobbery that sometimes comes from horse people. Is this all in my head? Anyone have an opinion on this?
(P.S.- Not trying to offend anyone, I have a lot of respect for the art of dressage!)
