Dressage is a French term meaning “training” and its purpose is to develop the horse’s natural athletic ability and willingness to work making him calm, supple and attentive to his rider.

Dressage dates back to Xenophon in Greece and includes a long line of riding masters, both from the military and the famous riding schools which developed during the Baroque era.
