Come along with us, the Dressage Today team, as we mix and mingle with the most inspiring members of our dressage community—from top riders to local legends. We talk all angles of our sport—sharing everything from training philosophies to stories of chasing dreams to horse-care tips. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.
Today’s Training Buzz is sponsored by US Rider. This clip features Olympic team dressage bronze medalist Debbie McDonald, who has been part of high performance, international dressage as a rider, trainer and coach for decades. In this clip from a clinic ride, a young rider and schoolmaster gelding are given a great reminder of making sure the horse is sensitive and responsive. They work on suppleness and straightness, and Debbie give an excellent explanation of correcting the outside shoulder and lack of flexion.

Stephanie J. Ruff, a native of Pennsylvania, is the Content Director of Practical Horseman and Dressage Today. She has been around horses most of her life and has amassed a great deal of experience in disciplines from dressage to racing to jumpers to endurance. Being in the equine industry personally as a horse owner and professionally as a writer and editor has given her amazing opportunities to travel the United States. She is now based on the west coast of Florida where she enjoys time with her two horses (Half-Arabian and Arabian) and two German Shorthair Pointer dogs.
Aviva Nebesky started riding in her 30s, but horses rapidly took over her life and she went on to graduate with distinction from the USDF “L” Program. She actively trains and competes in dressage while maintaining a busy teaching and judging schedule throughout the mid-Atlantic.
She has her USDF Bronze Medal and the Fourth Level scores towards her Silver and has competed internationally representing the USA at the Maccabi Games in Israel in 2022. Aviva regularly works with eventers, working equitation riders, Western Dressage riders and traditional dressage riders.
