Dressage

 

Dressage means conditioning of the horse's mind, timing his responses, and giving the impression
that horse and rider are a pair working as one.

It is the foundation from which all of the riding disciplines within Pony Club evolve.

The Regional Dressage chair for 2014 is Diana Bayer (613-233-8084).
