  • What is dressage? Somehow this word has developed an aura of mystery among youth and adults in the 4-H Horse Program. In simple terms, dressage is not unlike the basic training given to armed-forces recruits. Dressage is a French word that means “training” or “schooling.” All the aids (hands, seat or weight, and legs) are used in varying degrees to guide the horse through a set of maneuvers that are natural to the horse. Dressage teaches a horse to be obedient, willing, supple, and highly responsive to the wishes of the rider. Not every horse schooled in dressage will become a Grand Prix horse destined for Olympic competition, but every horse, regardless of its size, disposition, or ultimate use, can benefit from dressage. Keep in mind the first horse you worked with in the 4-H program. You started training that horse with some basics you learned from your 4-H leader or your parents. As you and your horse learned from each other, you advanced in your skills and abilities one step at a time. Dressage competition is a similar process. Dressage is a combination of equitation and horsemanship; knowing how to produce each movement until you and your horse move as one. The object of dressage is the harmonious development of the physique and ability of the horse. A dressage rider becomes precisely tuned to the movements of the horse’s body. Through progressive exercises of both horse and rider, the horse becomes calm, supple, obedient, and highly skilled, achieving a perfect understanding with its rider.
