ABOUT

The word dressage comes from the French word dresser, to train. To the untrained eye it looks easy, but like many equestrian sports, it serves the needs of a diverse range of horse lovers. It's an Olympic equestrian sport; yet a basic training discipline for the backyard horse.
Dressage teaches a horse to be obedient, willing, supple and responsive. The horse freely submits to the rider's lightest "aids" or body signals, while remaining balanced and energetic. The object of dressage is the harmonious development of the horse in both mind and body, and every horse, regardless of its type or use, can benefit from this training.
At the championships the competition is split into two divisions. Riders ages 14-18 will be crowned champions as both individuals and teams in the Junior competition by demonstrating their mastery of Fourth Level movements. Young Riders, ages 16-21, half-pass and pirouette their way through Prix St. George tests to capture medals.
