We are here to Help and make it Easy...

We are a group of people who are passionate about Freestyle Dressage to Music. We have developed this site to share with you our passion and to enable others to join in and take up the sport or just enjoy knowing a little more about what goes into it.

The freestyledressage team is made up of registered instructors and experienced riders and competitors! We discovered the fun of dressage to music training and competitions at our Riding Club in 2005. Since then we have worked hard to make freestyle dressage accessible to all riders whether their goal is to compete at Pony Club, Riding Club or BD competitions or whether they want to add a new dimension to their schooling.
