K.M.K Dressage Training
I am currently based in Spain (near Jerez) studying high school dressage but I spend one week of each month in the UK teaching. I've spent alot of time researching the history of horse training and believe firmly in the link between high school training and hand to hand mounted combat. Having ridden horses out here trained for mounted bullfighting, as well as those for artistic high school dressage, I can apreciate the advantages of total manouverability. I know alot of SK riders work with hired horses and may not feel that high school dressage is deeply relevant but I could certainly teach them as riders as they would have been taught during the early to mid 17th century.
Living History Portraits
Michael Sly's artistic style is detailed and very realistic, and working with the graphite pencil enables him to produce portraits with a photographic-like quality. Michael is completely committed to producing an heirloom portrait which captures you and your dedication to keeping history alive.
