In this episode, I catch up with someone who is very much a practitioner for a wonderful conversation about his thoughts and reflections on the history and future of dressage. Georges shares his incredible experience, philosophy and opinions with candour, warmth, humour, and a great love of horses shining through the conversation.
This episode is filled with a wonderful mix of personal stories and practical advise for improving your riding and relationship with your horses. All of this is underpinned by a passion for ensuring that equestrianism seriously tackles the current issues facing horse welfare.

About Georges and Carreg Dressage.
"HORSE & RIDER IMPROVEMENT
With over 35 years of experience of successfully progressing many horses and riders, Georges Dewez has a tremendous depth of both practical and academic knowledge – enabling you to take your riding to the next level.
LIGHT, FORWARD & BALANCED
The proof of our approach is the trademark of Carreg Dressage – happy horses with an ability to show expressive and gymnastic paces whilst moving correctly over the back.
IN HARMONY WITH NATURE
We are fortunate to be based in the UNESCO recognised Dyfi Biosphere in mid-Wales. Our ethical and organic principles ensure that we minimise our impact on this land, and provide a sustainable resource for our equestrian business."
