Although somewhat hidden behind North Hills School, the Las Colinas Equestrian Center stays busy with polo matches, training sessions and more. On Saturday and Sunday, the facility will host the Dallas Dressage Club Spring Shows I and II.

So, you ask, what is dressage? It was developed centuries ago as a system of training horses. It is considered the highest expression of horse training. It?s even an Olympic sport.

The show will be presented by Cindy Francheck, the owner of Francheck Dressage at 8787 Park Lane in Dallas. She is bringing her students to the center for the competition which will qualify students for several championship events.
