Dressage is more than trot

Improving the natural movement of gaited horses through dressage

Dressage is more than trot. Gaited horse riders fear that dressage training will make their gaited horses trot and many tradition dressage riders think that dressage isn’t dressage unless the horse trots. But if you look at the dressage training pyramid, you’ll see rhythm, relaxation, connection, impulsion, straightness, and collection, none of which are “trot.” Dressage is a beautiful training method that brings out the best in any breed whether the horse trots or gaits.
