Equestrian Lessons 

Dressage is the execution, by a trained horse, of precision movements in response to barely perceptible signals from its rider. Dressage harmoniously develops the physique and ability of both the horse and rider.

Cleland’s Dressage lessons are for riders from beginner to advanced level who are aspiring to ride competitively and become world-class dressage or show-jumping equestrians. These lessons are intensive and are aimed towards riders who have already undertaken or would like to begin equestrianism as an athletic sport. 


Our equestrian lessons are coached by FEI Level 2 Coach, Olympic Solidarity Eventing Coach, and FEI World Dressage Final Silver and Bronze Medalist Akoele Roachford.
