Karin Nissen – Basic dressage exercises

Karin Nissen is a riding master at Frederiksvaerk riding club in Denmark and one of the best dressage riders in Denmark. She’s part of the Danish national dressage team and has trained countless horses for Grand Prix – something she herself rides internationally.


In this series, Karin shows us how you can teach the horse the many basic dressage exercises; furthermore, she explains the purpose and effect of the exercises. There will be many examples of possible problems you may face during training and advice on how to solve them.


In this series, Karin is riding the 11-year-old Sir James by Sir Donnerhall and the 10-year-old gelding Lacroze Selsø by Buddenbrock. We’ll also see Andreas Larsen ride the 5-year-old mare Zif Zhanel P by Blue Hors Zack and the 5-year-old mare Zarra, also by Zack. Finally, Andreas Larsen also rides the 6-year-old gelding Cabindo by Fassbinder.

My daugther and I watch Ride Better TV together. We discuss the training methods and then try them on the ponies. We also learn a lot from the dressage tests in terms of what the judges want to see. A huge help for both of us. Lena Pedersen
Your videos are definately motivating me to keep working with my young horse. I live in a place with not many trainers around, so it is really cool to learn and be inspired by the videos. Ulla Jensen
