Dressage

Career Paths
April 1st, 2020

Thoroughbred horses are mainly used for racing; however, they also participate in other disciplines (such as eventing/dressage, mounted archery, polo, and fox hunting). Godolphin takes us behind the scenes to learn more about yearling training and the breaking in process for dressage riding. Dressage, derived from the French term meaning "training", is an equestrian sport where horse and rider perform choreographed movements from memory. This breaking in and training process is an important step in preparing horses for their career. 

This video has a few questions at the end, followed by the answers to learn more.
