What is dressage?
the art of riding and training a horse in a manner that develops obedience, flexibility, and balance.
A French term, most commonly translated to mean "training", is a highly skilled form of riding performed in exhibition and competition, as well as an "art" sometimes pursued solely for the sake of mastery. As an equestrian sport defined by the International Equestrian Federation, dressage is "the highest expression of horse training" where "horse and rider are expected to perform from memory a series of predetermined movements."
"Dressage is harmony with my equine partner that forms a bond so strong that I dedicated my life towards learning, training, riding, and educating others to learn this sport and how to care for these amazing horses."

THIS IS WHY WE DO
WHAT WE DO
Mel's passion for her love of horses and dressage are contagious. She dedicates the time to teach you more than just how to ride, but also how to understand what your horse needs for well being.
I began riding with Mel this past Spring 2019, and I am thrilled with how much I am learning! Mel's lessons are positive and easy to follow from young horses to FEI. I am impressed with both her horsemanship and professionalism. I highly recommend her!
Mel comes up for clinics and our students learn so much from her. Her private lessons are very informative and she prioritizes what needs to be worked on and leaves each student with concepts to work on until the next clinic.
