â€œDressageâ€ is a French word meaning â€œtrainingâ€œ. Whether you aspire to Olympic jumping or wish to develop a harmonious relationship with your horse for recreational riding, dressage is the foundation of all horse training.â€ Susanne Vogt, Swiss Prix St.Georges trained, employs a holistic approach, using the building blocks of classical principles in the training of dressage. She realizes the potential and individuality of each horse she trains and develops an all-inclusive program that seeks to improve the balance, power, health and well-being of your horse. Whatâ€™s more, she is then able to transfer that knowledge to the rider, so that the education of the horse and rider become harmonized. Trainer: Susanne Vogt
