FEI Principles of Dressage
The object of Dressage is the development of the horse into a happy athlete through harmonious education as outline by the German Training Scale. As a result, it makes the horse calm, supple, loose and flexible, but also confident, attentive and keen, thus achieving perfect understanding with the athlete.
These qualities are demonstrated by:
The freedom and regularity of the paces.
The harmony, lightness and ease of the movements.
The lightness of the forehand and the engagement of the hindquarters, originating from a lively impulsion.
The acceptance of the bit, with submissiveness/throughness without any tension or resistance
