Art2Ride has developed an Associate Trainers Program for followers around the world who have studied the system and demonstrated their abilities and understanding of how to systematically develop a horse through the levels. Certified Associate Trainers have been through a rigorous process in which they have to demonstrate their abilities and understanding of Classical Foundation Training. Demonstrating their ability to recognize a properly engaged horse, the ability to correctly engage a horse and the skill to help others achieve the same goals. We are proud to recommend these trainers around the world!

From the Blog!

Join me as I post weekly blogs covering many topics relating to Classical Foundation Training. I have intentionally left out the word "dressage" because many people have a negative association with the prevalent "crank and spank" approach or that it is a sport for only those who are afraid to jump.

Dressage as it is meant to be is an understanding of how to best optimize a horse's movement and ability to carry a rider, surely a benefit for any horse, any discipline. It is also important in maintaining your horse's safety, soundness and sanity.
