What is Dressage

Dressage is an Olympic sport, often referred to as ballet of the horse because of its beauty and elegance. Dressage represents the highest level of training a horse can achieve. The movements are based on those a horse performs while running free and interacting with herd mates. To train the horse to move like this with a rider on top requires a high level of precision, obedience and concentration from both horse and rider.
