Dressage Rider workshops
Two-day symposiums for riders of any level, including lectures, demonstration riders and group work. These workshops cover subjects such as transitions, frames, half-halts, exercises for developing the movements, balance and the horse's psyche.
Participants will work with their horses each day, on occasion twice daily. Lessons will be semi-private as well as in small groups. Each rider will also participate in theory lectures, group work and discussions, as well as receive lessons on longeing, and learn about in-hand work and longreining. There is one cavaletti session. The final day will include test riding and a view from the judge's chair with discussion and evaluation of movements from the current ASHA and FEI tests.
