Karl Mikolka, USDF Hall of Famer and former Chief Rider of the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, brings the art of classical dressage to the web with the unveiling of MikolkaDressage.com, a website dedicated to the schooling of the horse and rider as it was practiced and refined at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, Austria. Techniques of the Spanish Riding School were primarily passed along verbally through one-on-one instruction. So before it is lost, Mikolka is making the treasure of those time tested techniques available to all serious equestrian students. These techniques have been proven to be effective for hundreds of years and correctly applied, are still today practiced at the highest levels of competitive dressage.
For any dressage enthusiast out there, it is an absolute MUST to visit www.MikolkaDressage.com. There are downloadable articles, training exercises and so much valuable information you owe it to yourself (and your horse!) to check it out.
