What is Cowboy Dressage?
Cowboy Dressage is a discipline for horsemen and women pursuing the ultimate goal of Soft Feel - an intimate and wordless communication between horse and rider. It emphasizes kindness towards your horse and towards your fellow competitor.
"Soft feel is not only sending messages but having the sensitivity and awareness to feel and receive the message the horse sends back."
I believe in Cowboy Dressage because I feel that horse and rider should be rewarded for more than just riding to points. Their Harmony and Partnership should be the priority above all else, and Cowboy Dressage encourages that mindset.
