: Hi all,
: When I was a young student, there was a list
: of "forbidden activities" for
: dancers. Horseback riding was on that list.
"I mean, is she a real serious ballet student and does she want to go professional?"
Tough to know at her age plus depends on lots of factors: how talented is she, does she have the desire to excel as a professional and do her parents have the $$ to support her dancing are some of them. My ex wife was a modern dancer (but took many ballet classes) and being married to a field trialer, rode on occasion. I never heard her mention a HB/ballet problem and we discussed both subjects more than a few times. (And 'turnout' was a problem for her because of her body structure.) Harry
