A Visit to a Dressage Barn

I had so much fun at Shinto doing piaffe on this huge and well trained Grand Prix horse I thought everyone should do it!  Well, not everyone, but at least some of my friends who ride Icelandics and have an appreciation for dressage.

Trish and I designed a little “Introduction to Dressage” clinic at Shinto Farm.  We would have a tour of the facility, put on a demonstration with several different breeds of horses and then have a little dressage clinic on the Icelandics.  After that they would briing out the big guns and people could try out the dressage horses.

First, the barn tour.

We took a little coffee break in the upstairs viewing lounge and had a questions and answers session.

Now let’s see some of these horses in action!  Click to continue the tour.
