Dressage is the basic equestrian discipline based on perfect harmony between rider and horse. The Lipica Stud Farm follows the principles of classical dressage, which developed in the past centuries based on the training of horses for battle. For the rider in the battlefield a horse with a good command of pirouettes, lead changes, sidepasses and other elements were sometimes of vital importance. The fighting skills on specially trained horses was developed to the greatest extent in Spain. Hence the name “Spanish Riding School”.

The foundation of classical dressage is the natural ability of the animal. The basis and aim of classical dressage is the psychophysical and technical training of horse and rider to perform harmonised moves without force and at the highest level of concentration. All these movements are performed naturally by horses when they are free and with their herd.

Dressage as a competitive discipline emphasises above all a perfect harmonised development of psychophysical characteristics of a horse. In competitive dressage almost all elements of the classical school were kept, with an emphasis on beauty of movement and harmonious, almost unnoticeable influence of the rider.
