Dressage, at its most basic level, entails developing an obedient and responsive horse.  It is the first stage of training for any discipline. But it is also the most demanding Olympic discipline, requiring years of training for both horse and rider aiming for Grand Prix level.

The principles date back to the ancient Greeks - but modern dressage started its development during the Renaissance and developed from a circus-type performance.  

The dressage horse must be fit, agile, sound and intelligent.  The rider must be equally fit and must have patience and dedication in bucketloads!
