Dressage is a highly skilled form of riding performed in exhibition and competition, as well as an “art” sometimes pursued solely for the sake of mastery. As an equestrian sport defined by the International Equestrian Federation, dressage is described as “the highest expression of horse training” where “horse and rider are expected to perform from memory a series of predetermined movements.”
The TTEA have expressed their gratitude to the volunteers, coaches, parents and stable owners for their assistance, as well as Dressage Delegate, Inga Serrette-Fletcher, who made the event run smoothly and successfully.
