ABOUT THE AGENCY
Alique Dressage is driven purely by passion and with the goal of linking riders to well brought up, healthy and talented Dutch and German bred dressage horses.
The horses are located in the north (Burdaard) and in the middle (Zoelen) and part of the Netherlands. Alexandra believes the horses deserve the best management to keep them healthy and happy. For this reason, all horses are turned out for 3 to 24 hours per day and have visual, auditory and most of time olfactory contact with other horses. We keep our yearling and two-year-old horses together in large barn areas during the winter, and during the summer the horses are stay out in wide-open fields. When the horses move into the training barns to be broken, they have access to everything they need to develop their full potential. The horses are ridden by professional dressage riders who keep a critical eye on wellbeing of the horses.
We believe in a personal touch, a clear story and involvement.
