What is dressage?
Dressage is the base of all the parts in equestrian.
You make sure that youre the boss and not your
horse. Only if you ride dressage well, you can go
further in the equestrian. When ride dressage you
have to have self-control. You have to trust your
horse and the horse have to trust you to. The trick is
doing not let see anyone what you are doing. Only
when youre a real team you can go higher. A
example is Adelinde Cornelissen with her horse
Parzival. They are a real team and trust each other.
What are the different levels?
The first level is B this is the easiest. Then we go
further to L1 than youve got different parts. The
second category in the L class is L2 than you do
more in the gallop. The next level is M1. In this level
youve got a new method. Than youve got M2 than
you ride a gallop-change. Followed with the Z1 and
the Z2 than you do every level aggregated. Than
youve got ZZ-light and ZZ- heavy. That is the
highest level on the easier equestrian. On the more
difficult equestrian youve other levels. As example
grand-prix or FEI.

As a junior, Cornelissen won three national Dutch
titles; twice with Ayesha and once with Mr. Pride. In
2004 she won her first senior title at a national level.
When she won the Z2-class with Parzival. In that
same year she became national champion in the
Reserve Championships in the ZZ-light-class with,
followed by the same title in the ZZ-heavy-class title
in 2005, both times on Parzival. In 2007, she and

Parzival won the Dutch national championship in the

heavy-class and she won two silver medals, at the
International Grand Prix meetings in Falsterbo and
Herentals. In Falsterbo she finished second in the

FEI World Equestrian Games Cornelissen was
eliminated in the Grand Prix due because there was
blood in Parzival's mouth as a result of Parzival
having bit on his tongue. This arent all of her prizes,
but there are too many to write about.
