I hope this helps Calgary Alberta area dressage riders.
I’ve come up with a way to remember the letter positions around the Dressage arena.
Starting with A and going clockwise around the ring:
I understand that the original Dressage letters were abbreviated names of a King’s horses, whose stalls surrounded the indoor riding school at court. That would explain why Dressage letters are not in alphabetical order. Does anyone have any other information on the origin of Dressage letter placement? Send a comment.
