Dressage is a truly elegant equestrian discipline in which horses dance to the rhythm of music in a rectangle arena. It is a real art, based on the perfect harmony between horse and rider. Although the first reports refer to this technique used in the war field, dressage was introduced in the Academies in Italy and in the European courts during the Renaissance. The first dressage competition took place in Bratislava in 1873. Since the 1912 edition, in Stockholm, Dressage is one of the Olympic disciplines.
The purpose of this discipline is to show the level of training of the horse achieved through the harmonious development of its movements.
Dressage is widespread all over the world. Particularly in the Northern Europe countries (the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark and Sweden), it is the most widespread equestrian discipline.
Veredus offers a wide range of full protections, tendon boots, and fetlock boots able to guarantee the horse the highest level of protection during training and dressage practice. Particularly in flat work and dressage, the boots must offer protection from accidental impacts of the shoes but also give maximum support to tendons and ligaments, which are very stressed during the exercises. At the same time they must guarantee comfort and absolute freedom of movement.
Among the riders who have chosen Veredus and who have achieved world records in dressage, the absolute queen of the discipline stands out, the German Isabell Werth (10 Olympic medals including six golds; 6 times world champion; 12 European champion titles; 8 times national champion). Today Isabell occupies the first two positions of the world ranking list together with her horses Bella Rose and Weihegold. In collaboration with the German rider Veredus conceived and developed the new Absolute line, presented in 2020. Another exceptional ambassador is the Dutch rider Adelinde Cornelissen, unforgettable individual silver and team bronze medal at the 2012 London Olympics, riding Parsifal.
