Real Dressage!

This is real dressage! I would give my right arm to ride with this guy for a month.


There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill

Because he is talking about the real art of dressage being about communication with the horse, and how proper communication is the core...

That's why I would call it real dressage, anyway

You know the name Nuno Oliveira? He is considered by many to be the greatest 20th century dressage rider. I think he died in the 60's, I know he is long gone. There is not a lot of quality footage of him riding, but wathcing this man's seat is a joy to behold.

Tiny, not knowing of Nuno as a dressage rider, is like not knowing what canter is. He was such an influential figure in the dressage world, such an amazing horseman
