Does YOUR horse love his bit?

About the Spring/Summer Dressage Shows


The year 2019 will be our 25th annual Spring Dressage Show at Horse Amour, and 7th ever Summer Dressage Show. Dressage is the basis for all correct riding and the foundation for all other equestrian competitions. The horse needs a period of rest from the physical demands of jumping, and riders need a time to come back to the basics with correct flatwork. Our Spring Dressage Show is the grande finale for all our winter Dressage schooling. But April is early! We have added a Summer Show to further enjoy dressage! Dressage is great fun when combined with music, teamwork and the incredibly enjoyable creativity and talent that our competitors bring to this show!
