Because it is the source all harmonic riding styles originally draw from, I feel that classical dressage builds a solid foundation for riding students from all styles. All its basic principles build up on each other logically and are explained from a biomechanical point of view. In my lessons, I adapt my teaching style to my student's needs. Not all students learn the same way – some are very analytical, others learn best with body imagery as it is used in Sally Swift's or Feldenkrais technique. My goal is to teach my students how to be feeling and thinking riders, which is why I always include theoretical inputs in my riding lessons. This makes for concentrated, but calm, constructive sessions in which riders and horses have time to understand, rather than straining horses and riders with mindless drills.
