Couverture de l’ouvrage Deciphering dressage
A guide to understanding the world of dressage for the novice competitor or spectator Dressage is one of the fastest growing equestrian sports in America, appealing to riders who aim for high-level competition, as well as to those who simply want to improve their mounts and their overall riding skills. Deciphering Dressage explains the fundamentals and provides practical information on dressage tests, selecting a horse, finding a qualified instructor, buying tack and apparel, preparing for competition, and more. It also examines dressage as an art form, highlighting the mental and physical challenges and rewards that riders encounter in pursuit of true harmony with their horses. Karen Leigh Davis (Roanoke, VA), rode competitively in saddleseat and hunt seat equitation before switching to classical dressage. Her demonstrated versatility as a rider has more than equipped her to introduce newcomers to the demanding sport of dressage.
