National Dressage Symposium Featuring Axel Steiner Planned for Fall

Dressage Canada is pleased to announce the 2014 National Dressage Symposium with FEI Dressage Judge, Axel Steiner. This will be an exciting educational opportunity for the entire community.

As an FEI 5* judge since 1988, Steiner has been involved in the sport his entire life. He has judged Olympics, World Cup Finals, Pan American Games, as well as many other championships in the United States and across the world.

The format for the symposium will be based on improving your test through the judge’s perspective. Day one of the symposium will focus on the national tests, while the second day will feature the FEI tests.

Steiner will judge each test and provide running commentary for the audience. At the conclusion of the test, he will provide feedback on how to improve the ride and may ask each rider to perform movements or segments of the test again to demonstrate the improvements.

The 2014 National Dressage Symposium is being held November 22-23, 2014 at the High Point Equestrian Club, Langley, BC,
