Anyone who rides competitively wants to improve….not just to win, but to monitor their own progress. It feels good to know that you've done well; it feels great to believe you are getting even better.
You can work harder, ride more, train longer….but sometimes getting better only means you have to be "smarter." Rev-Up Your Dressage Scores is a course which provides some "insider insights" to how you can improve by knowing more, not working harder or training longer.
