What is TDF's Op-Ed?

TDF is proud to introduce "OP-ED," an OPportunity for EDucation, just for you! Op-Ed is an educational article series, written exclusively for TDF E-News subscribers. The best part? It is free because TDF is dedicated to the education of classical dressage and the humane training of the horse. Articles are published once a month and will include the following contributions:

  • "School Figures: Their Meaning, Purpose and Use" by Renate Lansburgh
  • "Purpose of Good Warm-Ups"  by High Performance rider Tom Noone
  • FEI 5* Judge Anne Gribbons will write about the "perfect seat"
  • 'S' Judge Sarah Geikie will share what Judges are looking for at Training through Second Levels
  • Olympian Michael Poulin will discuss how dressage benefits the horse and rider
  • Hilda Gurney will write about tempo, rhythm and forward
  • Maryal Barnett will share tips on making a "marginal" pirouette "excellent" 

Much more to come! Sign up below:
