“Freestyles are a creative expression of the relationship between a horse and rider.”
Dressage Musical Freestyle combines the elegance and beauty as well as the power and strength of the horse with the stirring impact of music. Movements and figures are choreographed to meet the technical requirements of the particular level with carefully chosen music that highlights the horse/rider combination. Musical Freestyles are entertaining and offer great audience appeal. The tests are offered from First to Fourth levels through the USDF and at Prix St. Georges for Young Riders, Intermediate I and Grand Prix through the FEI. Musical Freestyles are a component of the dressage competition at the Olympics, and the World Equestrian Games. Freestyles are a creative expression of the relationship between a horse and rider.
