Del Mar National Dressage Show in Del Mar

Dressage is all about training and showing how well you have trained your horse to maneuver through different movements and master a type of art form. This form is ancient with modern rules coming out of the Renaissance Era. Each horse goes through a series of tests.

Tests often include the Piaffe, Passage, Extended Gait, Collected Gaits, Flying Changes, Pirouette, and Half-Pass.

In this case I attended the Del Mar National Horse Show. Each of the horses made their way around the arena and showed their training style. A western entertainment show was shown during the intermission. Food, clothing and other items were present.

I like to watch these shows to see how well they trained their horses. You also get to connect with great people and learn tips and tricks in their training. Being a horse owner myself it is helpful to get connected to a group of horse owners.
