Im­proved Breed­ing

Dressage Today - - Tips From Trainers Who Teach -

The breed­ing of dres­sage horses has im­proved their qual­ity to a huge de­gree over the last 20 years. The horses I had many years ago had good move­ment but they weren’t as flex­i­ble as they are now, so it was much harder for me to keep them to­gether. To­day, the mod­ern horses are more ele­gant and have bet­ter move­ment, light­ness and self-car­riage. This makes it much eas­ier be­cause the rider needs less power to keep the horse to­gether. It’s much eas­ier to play with them be­cause they are more elas­tic and flex­i­ble by na­ture.
