Dutch Olympians Edward Gal and Hans Peter Minderhoud show riders and spectators that patient, persistent, clear and kind horsemanship leads to ease in the dressage arena.
In this issue, we share common themes from their teachings, part of the 2018 West Coast Dressage Convention, including:
• ride forward
• make frequent transitions
• insist on responsiveness
• be a kind yet firm leader
Also in this issue, a top veterinarian reviews special nutritional considerations for the senior dressage horse.
