Looking for a unique internship in dressage? Everyday can be a masterclass – it is up to you. We are passionate about sharing dressage with riders who have an interest in theory as well as riding. As Alois Podhajsky said, “there must be a balance between theory and riding. Without this balance, riders go from one system to another with no understanding of biomechanics or history. They just ride each day, making mistakes that have already been proven to be ineffective.”
