Classical Dressage at the Ranch

Would you like classical dressage, in the sun, on a wonderful well schooled Lusitano horse, with our classical dressage teacher ?

Classical Dressage envolved from the cavalry movements and training for the battlefield, has since developed into the competitive dressage seen today.

Classical Dressage riding is the art of riding in harmony with, rather than against the horse.

Correct Classical Dressage riding only occurs when the rider has a good seat and a correct and well balanced body position, moving together with the horse his motion and applies the aids and the timing of aids correctly.

Classical Dressage and a independent seat

Developing an independent seat is absolutely essential for a rider aspires to be in balance with the horse.  An independent seat is wonderful to have and to see. It feels and looks like dancing with the horse.  A rider with an independent seat can move each body part independently.

Each part of his body is flexible enough to do its job without any compensation in another body part. The rider can balance perfectly over the horse his center of gravity at any gait without any gripping or tilting or grabbing with the legs.

In one week you can develop yourself to become a better rider and learn a lot about good training and riding.
