The object of dressage is the harmonious development of the horse in both mind and body. Every horse, regardless of its type or use, can benefit from this training. Dressage requires the horse and rider to combine strength and agility with the elegance and beauty of ballet.

Show Jumping Rally
Show Jumping improves the agility and focus of both horse and rider. It utilizes physical skills to negotiate a series of obstacles, and mental skills to plan the proper lines and approaches to allow the horse to jump those obstacles. The jumps are colorful and of varying heights and widths. Wide jumps or ‘spread jumps’ may include water that horses must leap over, but not touch. Each course is intended to demonstrate the horse’s freedom, energy, training and obedience, as well as the rider’s horsemanship. The goal of the horse and rider combination is negotiating the course without errors or disobediences.
