Schooling Dressage Shows
Our schooling dressage shows are NCDCTA recognized and ideal for anyone new to the discipline of dressage and seasoned dressage riders looking to practice and improve their tests. We offer a fun, stress-free day in a beautiful setting. White Rose Equestrian is easily accessible from all areas of Charlotte.
You will enjoy riding in our permanent full-sized dressage arena with screening footing. This area easily converts to a small arena for lower-level classes. Our warm-up area is an inviting 20 m x 40 m sand arena.
Dressage is a form of riding that emphasizes the development of a horse's natural athletic ability and balance through progressive exercises. It is an integral part of any horse training program, as it helps the horse to develop strength, balance, and agility. Dressage also promotes calmness and relaxation in the horse, allowing it to become more responsive to the rider's commands and aids. The training also helps the rider to develop a better connection with the horse and improve their balance, coordination, and riding skills. The practice of dressage is essential for any horse to reach its full potential and is beneficial for both the horse and the rider.
