dressage suspension

"Improved" suspension has no real value in itself, but it is the beautiful result of correct training, as the horses grows taller in the collection, and grows longer and more brillant in the extension.

dressage curb

The full bridle allows the rider to fine tune communication with the horse.  The curb is used for longitudinal flexion, and requires that the horse already be in uphill carriage, since you can’t get the horse up with the curb.


Balance is one of the most interesting subjects in riding, because it is relevant on so many different levels. Most people think of the position of the center of gravity relative to the support base first, when they hear the word "balance". But this is only one aspect.

  • Shoulder-In vs Leg-yielding

    Overuse of leg-yielding is not beneficial to the horse's physical development. Shoulder-in, benefits the horse in many ways. The correct execution of this movement will increase the flexion of the hind legs, thereby enabling the hindquarters to carry more weight.

half halt

From a general, theoretical point of view the half halt aims at improving the flexion of the hip and hock joints of the addressed hind leg. This increased flexion of the haunches can be used to achieve specific purposes.

Uwe Schwanz

Breaking a horse requires skill and know-how. But being a good rider is not enough, says German top trainer Uwe Schwanz who, among others, has trained the Pan Am dressage team of Argentina and is trainer to many top riders and team members in dressage competitions and jumping.


Dressage achieves balance, suppleness,and obedience with the purpose of improving and facilitating the horse's performance of normal tasks. This discipline is elegance in motion, where every movement made by horse and rider is choreographed to perfection.
