Dressage is a French word, that means “training”.  As an equestrian sport defined by the International Equestrian Federation, dressage is “the highest expression of horse training” where “horse and rider are expected to perform from memory a series of predetermined movements.”

Pony Club Victoria has 7 grades within the discipline of Dressage that riders compete in grade 6 through to grade advanced.

Riders begin in a 40m x 20m arena and need to remember and perform a series of movements.

As riders progress through the grades they will move to a larger arena size 60m x 40m.

Other forms of Dressage include Musical Ride and Team Rides.
