In the 1970s, dressage was still in its infancy in the United States. A rider intent on learning had to travel to immerse himself in other cultures for what those who had already mastered the art might teach him. Paul Belasik learned all he could about dressage methodology and was able to compare and contrast the various means for achieving related goals: beautiful movement, “lightness,” connection between two beings.

Belasik explored dressage “paths” including the German system, the Portuguese art of equitation, and the revered Spanish Riding School. Considering the role of mindfulness, how to become a good teacher, and how to be a good student in today's horse world, Belasik has sought wisdom from great riding masters such as Dr. HLM van Schaik and Nuno Oliveira, and his wide-ranging studies include the concepts of Zen Buddhism and martial arts.
