Beginner Dressage Part 2


Beginner Dressage Part 2

This is the second tutorial in my Beginner Dressage Series.


This series includes all of the moves from Part 1 of my Beginner Dressage Series and a bunch more.


You can review that Part 1 of my Beginner Dressage Series, here.


If you're new to Star Stable Dressage and/or Metal Queens, this tutorial will be very helpful!


You can see the Queens' demonstrating all of the Beginner Dressage moves in the video tutorial, below.


Be sure to check that out, because seeing the moves in action is often times easier to understand than just reading about them.


Also, be sure to visit my Dressage Mastery Series where I have a bunch more tutorials with free .pdf printouts for each series!


You can download them and keep them handy in your Star Stable Dressage binder!
