2020 Games in Tokyo: Equestrian Dressage – the art of the riding world
Dressage is essentially the groundwork for other equestrian disciplines. The horse must be able to respond quickly and gracefully to even the most subtle of commands from the rider. The competitors must perform a routine to music inside a 20m x 60m rectangular area and each movement is evaluated by judges and scored individually. This event will take place at the Equestrian Park in Tokyo which also hosted the event back in 1964 and thus continues a legacy for this venue. The other equestrian events, such as 2020 Games in Tokyo: Equestrian Jumping and the 2020 Games in Tokyo: Equestrian and 2020 Games in Tokyo: Equestrian Eventing will also take place here. The 2020 Paralympic equestrian events also include a variant of dressage that is judged on accuracy of gait and how well the athlete and their horse work together.

The son of a preacher man
Xenophon, the ancient Greek philosopher, wrote of horses and what would eventually become the principles on which modern dressage would be based. Nearly a thousand years later, "The Rules of Riding" was written by Frederico Grisone, which helped evolve modern dressage into the equestrian pursuit we know today. The traditions of the masters of this art are taught by a select few schools in Europe. The most famous of these would be the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, Austria, which is known for training the breathtaking white Lipizzaner horses that perform classical dressage shows around the world. Dressage horses are typically warmblooded breeds and are bred specificaly for the sport. Dressage movements you can expect to see at the Games events include piaffe, passage, extended gaits, collected gaits, flying changes in sequence, pirouette and half-pass. These can be seen in combination in freestyle events.
