 Pesade

 

 

Haute école - the art of classical equitation -  evolved from cavalry movements and training for the battlefield. In turn, the origins of classical dressage and collection lie in the natural ability of the horse and its movements in the wild. The Iberian horse - the Lusitano -  with its aptitude for "La Gineta," its compact conformation, with powerful hindquarters and high-stepping action, is perfectly suited to this discipline.

 

 

 

 
 
 
 
Here are some pictures from the classic treatise "The Liberal and Noble art of Horsemanship"  by the 18th century writer Manuel Carlos de Andrade.
