Boost Your Dressage Scores with Learning Theory: Part 14

June 2016 by Manuela McLean, Co-Director, Equitation Science International & Australian Equine Behaviour Centre

Dressage judges play an important role in the education of both riders and their horses. The marks and comments they provide can inform rider and coach of the level of training achieved, and any areas that need more work. But, can you turn them into clear training strategies and boost your dressage scores?  

In this series, Dr Andrew and Manuela McLean, founders of the Australian Equine Behaviour Centre (AEBC) and Directors of Equitation Science International, explain dressage training and judging against the backdrop of learning theory and the equitation science training scale.
