Classical Dressage - Dominique Barbier

I will be riding Leo in one of Dominique Barbier's classical dressage clinics this weekend. Super excited and a bit nervous :)

Any thoughts on Dominique?

Oh fun! You know dressage really is my life. I love it so much, and more specifically classical dressage. I think the principles incorporated in classical training can be used in any disapline and is a better method of development for the horse too. I have quite a few books and DVDs on different trainers exhibiting classical principles, some of my fave include "twisted truths of modern dressage," "dancing with horses," "tug of war, classical vs. modern dressage, and "the elements of dressage."

Both Karl and Von Ziegner are great in their instruction and understanding of their techniques with plenty of visual aids. However I'm not someone who think Germany are the only ones who can ride a collected horse. For example Klaus Ferdinand teaches from a classical Spanish background. (another breed of classical dressage I adore.) Then theres Mario A. Conteras, the new kid in the game. He brings an Italian background and principles to the table, plus he got his start working at "Medevil Times" which I think is cool, and he's kinda cute lol. (not a reason to check him out, he's really quite a great rider and I'm just being goofy.)

If you really want some great insight into classical dressage, I would start by reading "twisted truths of modern dressage" and go from there. I know this post wasn't about Dominique precisely but about similar trainers and classical dressage. :)
