The object of dressage is the harmonious development of the physique and ability of the horse. As aresult it makes the horse calm, supple, loose and flexible, but also confident, attentive and keen; thus achieving perfect understanding with his rider.




After all of the basics are learned, qualified instructors will teach you how to jump the horse over various obstacles. Jumping is a huge thrill that comes along with a great sense of achievment. Riders wishing to learn to jump will start riding over poles and cavalettis as soon as they are able to keep their balance in two point position and goback to rising trot without losing their balance or the rhythm of the trot. A course of riding trot and canter poles will be followed by learning to ride over cross rails and then to small verticals. Once the student has learned to ride the individual fences, the instructor will put them together and teach them how to ride the jumping course.




The basic movements of classical riding are steps, trot and canter. In steps, the horse places his legs diagonally in front of eachother onto the ground so that all four hooves are heard. In trot, the diagonal pair of legs push off from the ground and touch the ground simultaneously again there is a second of floating and two hoof beats can be heard. In the canter, there is a row of jumps in which three hoof beats can be heard. More advanced movements include the piaffe, passage, side stepping and backward steps.


After initial assessment and recommendation by the instructor, more advanced riders may take classical riding lessons on purebred Lusitano stallions. The Lusitano is an ancient Portuguese breed of horse that until the 1960s shared its registration with the Spanish horse, the Anda- lusian. Both are sometimes called Iberian horses, as their land of origin is the Iberian peninsula. These Iberian horses were developed for use in war, dressage and bull fighting. Lusitanos make excellent riding horses due to their levelheaded temperament and tendency to bond strongly with humans. They are intelligent, sensible, and have great balance.
