Deirdre Dressage offers services in many areas.  We strive to offer riders and horses a well rounded, complete program that builds confidence and success.  A safe, relaxing training environment is of upmost importance to Deirdre Dressage.

Horse Training and Promotion 

 

Deirdre Dressage strives to develop horses gradually and thoroughly.  Every step is taken to ensure that the horse is individually trained in the most beneficial manner.  Classical principles are always used to insure that the basics of training are solid and confirmed.  The advanced training of the horse is progressed from the foundation of the basics.  This ensures that the horse is happy and healthy within the more demanding work.  Each horse is exposed to a number of different situations to ensure that they are challenged physically and mentally in order to increase the size of their comfort zone.  Training includes: Classical dressage (main focus), gymnastic jumping, obstacle work (working over bridges, tarps, mattresses, working through hanging objects, etc), exposure to flags and other objects for confidence, trail riding, fun time through work with toys.  Our goal is to develop a horse that is calm and confident in the show arena, and develop the mind so that they can think through stressful situations.

Lessons

 

Our program treats every rider like a finely tuned athlete.  Our lesson program is tailored to develop the rider mentally and physically through the work of dressage, focus practice, and specialized un-mounted (and mounted) exercises.  Every lesson is customized to develop each rider through their own individual weaknesses and strengths.  Lessons with Deirdre will include the what, why, and how of every theory taught so that the rider leaves with the feeling of true understanding.  It is our goal to develop riders with independent thinking and drive.

We owe it to them to hold our own and become a partner.
