In the last weekend of January we had a mounted training solely dedicated to classical dressage. For this purpose the director of the Fürstliche Hofreitschule Bückeburg visited our stables to teach our riders in individual classes. Most notably attention was given to doing proper groundwork and to the Piaffe.

You can see the very useful application of classical dressage towards riding and fighting in late medieval armour in this video (made by Ben van Koert) of riders Arne Koets (organiser) and Joram van Essen (HEI rider) at a recent demonstration in the Hollandsche Manege riding school in Amsterdam. It gives the knight the utmost control of his warhorse, and enables him to fight his opponents as effectively as possible.
