Dressage Equipment
Elegant and precise, Dressage is a highly skilled form of riding performed as the first phase of eventing and as a solo event. It involves the horse and rider doing a set of movements that showcase the strength and suppleness of the horse while showing the connection between horse and rider. At Schneiders, we have the right dressage equipment you need to perform the perfect dressage test, whether it’s the first lesson or Grand Prix.

Choosing the Right Dressage Equipment

Choosing the right dressage equipment is crucial to maintain a proper connection between you and your horse and helping your horse perform the precise movements needed for each level. The most important dressage gear purchases begin with your dressage bridles and bits and your dressage saddle and tack accessories. Connection and suppleness are important to perform any movement within a test, and the wrong-fitting dressage equipment can lead to injury and poor connection. To add comfort and protection between saddle and back, we have a large selection of dressage saddle pads and half pads in various colors. Whether you need a black or white saddle pad for showing or want to show off your personality while schooling, Schneiders has the saddle pads you need. Look no further for your dressage clothing choices than Schneiders for showing and training. We carry a full line of full-seat breeches, boots, helmets, and more. Round out your dressage equipment needs with our dressage accessories, such as boots, bandages, dressage whips, or spurs, we have all you need for the perfect test. Schneiders also carries dressage arenas and letters; whether you want Olympic-sized or a practice arena, get what you need to train and compete.
