Essential training for every rider and their horse. Don't be fooled by the title! It may sound simple, but there is a lot more to the fundamentals of riding than you may first think. 
Claire's focus is very much on the technique of the rider, and their ability to analyse their riding in fine detail to bring the best out in their horse. Every dressage test requires you to stop, go and turn!
