Classical Dressage - Spanish Riding School

"Ballet is not technique but a way of expression that comes more closely to the inner language of [wo]man than any other."
             -George Borodin

Classical dressage is always likened to horse ballet so I thought this quote best described this video. This is a lovely rider from the Spanish Riding School that is performing solo on a rare bay Lipizzaner stallion. It is a smooth ride showing balanced half-pass, flying changes, and piaffe all with one hand on the reins and the other holding the whip vertical, a traditional position demonstrated by advanced classical riders.  Enjoy!
