This particular series of our JOURNEY TO LIGHTNESS offers the most recent footage of Dominique to date. Dominique sat down with his team to re-examine the Barbier Dressage Training Companion and add the perspective of another 15 years of experience as a rider, international trainer and instructor. We began filming in late March 2020 and added more monthly until we finished the book.

The videos, like the book, cover all aspects of dressage — from attitude, equipment, lounging, and work in hand to the three gaits, lateral work, pirouettes and collection. Dominique answers questions in a casual yet intimate setting from the Barbier Farm viewing deck, often as students work school horses in the arena beyond him. True to form, he shares his answers in a stream of consciousness that results in a collection of candid, unabridged teachings.

You will receive the first four lesson videos when you join, and then we will add four new lesson videos for you to watch each month. We believe your membership will have the most value if you watch a video, reference the Training Companion for concise instructions and pointers about what to do and what to avoid, and work on putting what you learn into practice before moving on to the next video.
