DRESSAGE TODAY - TRAINING WITH OLYMPIAN RAFAEL SOTO AT THE ROYAL SCHOOL OF EQUESTRIAN ART
Diane enjoyed the high honor of attending the Real Escuela del Arte de Ecuestre in Jerez, Spain for a 2-week invitational dressage training program with 2004 Olympic silver medalist Rafael Soto. In addition to Doma Classica (classical dressage), Doma Vaquera (Spanish cowboy dressage), carriage driving and work-in-hand were a part of the exciting and challenging curriculum. This was Diane's second 2-week intensive training course with Rafael in Spain which is featured in Dressage Today's February 2009 issue. Viva España y los caballos de España!
