In my presentation I will be explaining what classical dressage is and the importance of it in keeping a horse sound, healthy and willing in both its work and its overall wellbeing. I’ll be talking about what spinal alignment is, the function of the body beneath the surface of what we can see and how we as riders are effecting the functioning of the horse biomechically when we work them. Understanding basic anatomy allows us as riders and horse people to be able to promote correct muscle development, the stronger the structural foundation the more physically able and therefore willing to perform is the horse.

Leading on from my description- I will also be talking about how I’ve been able to mesh together bridleless riding with a classical approach and how it’s been an amazing help.
