Ruben Villasenor, the founder of Horsemen's Western Dressage and the creator of 100% Pure horsemanship will add a new dimension to your next equine event. Ruben has been training horses for 30 years and has combined the horse and human relationship (horsemanship) with the Western Style, Vaquero and classical European disciplines(Western Dressage) into an electrifying show.
Horsemen's Western Dressage, through freestyle performance riding, demonstrates how this combination takes riding to an entirely new level.
