the people who have writen a bad review for this place obviously have no idea how difficult classical dressage is or anything about training horses. you are free to walk around the stables and touch the horses and speak to the riders and employees. yes the riders wear spurs and carry long dressage whips but these are used as extentions of the riders legs and hands. the whip when on the ground is used to tap the horse in time to the music so creating the illusion that the horse is dancing. very clever and also a lot of training has gone into preparing those horse to execute these moves. if the horses were unhappy i can assure you this show is so complex it would go wrong. i am a horse lover owner and rider and i am in awe of these riders they make it look effortless. i would not have gone to the show if i had been in any doubt that these horses receive the best of care having walked the 15km out from my resort to check on the condition of them. they are beautiful, well cared for and lovely natured beasts. totally reccomend thisplace and i am going back next year for clasical dressage lessons.
