Intermediate Dressage


Intermediate Dressage

Intermediate Dressage is one of the segments in my Dressage Mastery Series.


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 Intermediate Dressage moves, and this tutorial will be a good refresher for you!


Intermediate Dressage will teach you some of the more mid-level SSO Dressage Fundamentals.

Bird: A dodge revolve.


Bounce: Dodge then curl out. (One go).


Box Curl: Comb on 1st go, cut away from lead on 2nd, comb back to wall on 3rd, then merge to lead at wall.


Branch: Twig curl wave. (2 goes).


Bumble: Bee curl wave.


Double Cut: It's like tier but the first 3 riders comb, rest follow in that order.
