Browsing Dressage Training

Those who take a classical dressage vacation are practicing an equestrian discipline which is millennia old in Europe and has recently seen a burgeoning of interest among riders in the United States.

A viable program must have not only an experienced and qualified instructors, but just as critical are the “schoolmasters” – the selection of well-schooled horses who allow riders of all levels to gain a deep understanding and feel for the movements and timing of this demanding art. Lusitano and Andalusian stallions are particularly well suited for movements like the piaff, the pirouette and the passage.  Dressage has tremendous aesthetic appeal and its essence is achieving close harmony with an equine partner. Like so many sports, including rodeo, dressage techniques developed from practical needs and not so long ago horses were crucial in warfare. Dressage training can improve your skills for any kind of riding though some adaptations have to be made if you are doing something like an endurance ride across country.
