I have to ride them, to have good ground work, you have to ride, and to ride well, you need ground work. We go towards this more and more, ground work allows things to go so much faster once on the saddle, by making the comprehension easier in a zen spirit. I love both.
I have to ride to refine the dressage; they are athletes, and you have to diversify activities between pure dressage session, work on flexibility or show figure,... I try to don't bore them.
During shows, it's all about improving what we have, so that they know it by heart and are relaxed. It requires a lot of work, Mario's stables' skills, and Yann's know-how.
