Interpretation of "Classical": The art of riding with understanding. This has to include understanding of the horse's mentality, physique and locomotion, as well as that of the human body and its powers of co-ordination. Only then can riding develop from a science to an art where horse and rider may join as one, so that beauty and harmony may emerge.

Agreed to the CRC Charter: Yes
