COURSE FEATURES

Here's what you can expect from our training videos. 

CONSECUTIVE LESSONS

We're not going to teach you how to ride a simple change until you can ride walk-canter and canter-walk. Each module builds on the one before helping you progress successfully through the levels.

FOLLOW ALONG WORKSHEETS

Each lesson includes a downloadable and printable "fill-in-the-blanks" worksheet for you to complete and take additional notes as you follow along with the lesson.

CAPTIONS AND CHAPTERS

Each video has been edited to include English closed captions along with chapter timestamps, helping you to find the information that you want. 

END OF LESSON QUIZZES

There is a short, optional, multiple-choice quiz at the end of every lesson to test your new knowledge and understanding of the movement.

EXERCISE DOWNLOADS

Many lessons also have a downloadable exercise sheet containing the key lesson points along with a selection of exercises that you can try at home. 

NO RIDING LESSON RECORDINGS

We do not include recordings of other people having riding lessons. Instead, we use presentations and diagrams to give you a complete understanding of how and why to ride various movements. 







Create the partnership you always wanted

Correct dressage training creates a clear communication channel between horse and rider, resulting in less mis-communication, less second-guessing, and less confusion. 

This helps to build an harmonious partnership and gives both you and your horse more confidence and enjoyment in the ridden work.
