My passion is Classical Dressage as it was taught by old masters like Gustav Steinbrecht and Nuno Olivera. I've trained with many world-renowned masters, including Manolo Mendez, Joao Olivera, Arthur Kottas and Anja Beran. The purpose of Dressage is to enable the horse's muscles, through systematic, ordered gymnastic exercises, to enable the skeleton to carry itself as needed for service under saddle. What is desired is a carriage that enables the horse to always be in balance; that is, to go in
"self carriage". I will teach you how to recognize your horses weaknesses and strengths and natural crookedness. Together we will help your horse to become healthier, more obedient, supple, and beautiful using targeted exercises. Any breed or discipline of horse is welcome.
