If you're a beginner just starting out with Star Stable Dressage, this tutorial will help you to learn and master the moves that most Dressage clubs use in SSO!

If you've been around awhile, you'll know most of these basic curl Dressage moves, and this tutorial will be a good refresher for you!

How to do Basic Curls will teach you some of the SSO basic curl Dressage moves.

In this tutorial we'll focus on super tight singular circles.

This is a walk-curl. Start trotting when you finish the curl.


Is a canter-curl.

Backwards Curl

On the 1st go you halt. On the 2nd go you do a backwards curl then you trot onwards. There are two goes, unlike all the other curls.

That wraps up my How to do Basic Curls tutorial!

Be sure to watch the video tutorial below so you can see how to do each curl properly.

And, so you don't forget what you saw, I've made you a quick print out that you can download and keep in your SSD binder for easy reference!
