Introduction to Dressage in Southern California
 
Southern California is a hotbed for dressage enthusiasts. The international sport which has been included in the Olympics since 1996 (lookup #twohearts on Twitter for an after-view of last months games), was originally used by the Greek's to train their horses for war.  It is considered the ultimate discipline in equestrian sports, as it lays a foundation for other all other types of recognized competitive riding (excepting maybe racing?).  And discipline is the right word, as intense concentration and years of conditioning and practice is needed to excel at upper levels. 
 
Southern California was the birthplace of California Dressage Society, one of the worlds largest dressage organizations. CDS is celebrating it's 50 year anniversary in 2017. DASC, or Dressage of Southern California has grown from a grass roots organization in 1977 to a 300 strong membership.
 
In the Los Angeles area, possibly the only fully accredited and legally complaint show venue is in Somis, California and is called Spirit Equestrian. Spirit Equestrian has from 10-20 shows per year, from introductory level to Grand Prix. The weather in Somis California is temperate with cooling breezes off the Pacific Ocean. This facility is offered for sale.  For more information call Nona Green, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage - 818 426-2292 www.agourahorseproperty.com
