Musical freestyles are an exciting combination of the technical and artistic aspects of Classical Dressage ridden to music specifically chosen for you and your horse. Designing a musical freestyle on your own, however, can be time consuming and often frustrating. Perhaps you don't know how to get started, what rules you should be aware of, or how to keep the cost down. This lecture is designed for anyone who wants to know more about the creation of musical freestyles. Participants will learn how to establish BPMs, what to consider when selecting music, thoughts about creating choreography, and rules governing the development of musical freestyles.
