Tempted to use a stronger bit, larger spurs, or draw reins?
Dressage fundamentals can change your riding.
There's a reason why top riders of all disciplines say dressage is the secret to rideability, partnership, and success.
You might not know it, but riders like Beezie Madden, Anne Kursinski, and Martin Fuchs all practice dressage fundamentals to help them succeed in the show ring. From show jumping to hunters, equitation to pleasure riding, dressage is for everyone.
Build a better partnership and a more rideable horse.
No matter what discipline or type of horse you ride, dressage fundamentals can drastically improve your communication, confidence, and relationship with your horse. Through a step-by-step approach that breaks down the myths that dressage is boring and stuffy, and practical tools to work into your regular riding and training, you'll gain more rideability, a better partnership, and a stronger, happier horse.

How Dressage Fundamentals Can Improve Your Riding
You know you need to do proper flatwork, and you’ve heard over and over about how important the “basics” are. But where do you begin? How do you actually apply this to your riding?
Mette will guide you through a step-by-step approach to understanding the fundamentals of dressage in a way that every horse and rider can use - not just those who want to compete in the dressage sandbox.
This Masterclass is focused on how to practically apply the theories of dressage - the same theories that produce heart-stopping beauty like Valegro showing off in a Grand Prix Freestyle - to your horse in a way that brings out his best and is easy and fun to do.
This course is truly about UNLOCKING POTENTIAL in both you and your horse. Most horses have more ability than we think they do because they’re not being trained in a way that teaches them how to use their own body and strength properly. When we teach them how to use themselves with the principles of dressage, and you learn to communicate as clearly as possible, you'll end up with a better partnership and a more rideable horse than you ever thought possible!
Most importantly, you’ll improve your relationship and clarify your communication with your horse, which will set you up for success in any ring, on any trail, on any course.
