Thorsten and Allison Z shared this before and after, with approximately a year in between the photos being taken.
We recently asked our social media followers to share their best #TransformationTuesday photos with us. From winter woolies to summer shine, playful foals to beautiful show horses, adding weight to an undernourished new equine partner, or gaining muscle and better self-carriage through dressage work, here are the transformation photos the dressage community shared with us. Check out our photos from
