Students are started on the lunge line in a private lesson to allow the instructor to assess their riding skills and balance. Students learn how to groom and tack their horse, develop their riding skills and take care of their horse/tack after riding. The goal is to enable each student to learn to walk, trot, canter, halt, back and perform lateral movements. The emphasise is to have the students communicate with the horse primarily by using their body. Dressage training allows the rider to:

  • Use the lightest aids to communicate with the horse
  • Improve the balance and suppleness of the horse
  • Navigate obstacles, trails, jumps, and cavellettis
  • Ride safely in a group
  • Develop their own balance

Dressage Lessons are available.

Riders accepted at age 6, no upper age limit.
