“Creating beauty with your Horse is an Art, and that Journey is an Evolution of the Soul”
Tina Cristiani Veder 2019
Elegant, effortless, and expressive movements are an essential goal of dressage training. At the Artistic Dressage Symposium, you’ll have the opportunity to watch and learn from expert Instructors with years of experience on how to accomplish this through the training exercises of the Baroque Equestrian Games.
What to Expect?
You’ll see demonstrations on how ALL horses become more balanced, supple, straighter, and confident, beginning with the In-hand & BEGI Ground Work exercises. You’ll observe how these exercises help horses learn to use their bodies more effectively and, become more confident & develop a deeper connection with their person.
You’ll also be amazed to see how novice to advanced horses that are ridden in the BEGI Schooling Exercises improve their self-carriage, gaits, softness, connection & collection.
Beyond the instructional demonstrations, interactive Q & A & Discussions are planned after each exercise. Come join us for this incredible learning experience.
The step-by-step methods and techniques to introduce and train collection in a calm, patient and reassuring manner will be shown and explained in detail.
Questions will be answered after each demo.
