Mission Statement

Soft Feel (or Fresh Rein) is the guiding principle of Cowboy Dressage™.  It is a wordless, intimate and for some a spiritual communication within the partnership between horse and rider.  Soft Feel is not only sending messages but having the sensitivity and awareness to feel and receive the message the horse sends back.

The timing and use of the release, relaxation, preparation and execution are the basic fundamentals of Soft Feel.

Since Soft Feel is the mission of Cowboy Dressage™, it will be scored with emphasis on lightness, harmony, finesse and partnership as a priority.  Balance, cadence, carriage, control and performance are additional areas on which the horse and rider will be judged.©
