EducationThe purpose of the Santa Barbara County Chapter of the California Dressage Society is to bolster interest in Dressage. Dressage as an equitation term means the gradual harmonious development of a horse’s physical and mental condition with the aim of improving its natural gaits and developing a perfect understanding with its rider.  The Chapter’s program is educational, and is designed primarily to offer a framework in which individuals can progress with the schooling of themselves and their horses. Activities such as riding clinics, dressage shows and education are directed toward a better general understanding of Dressage.
