Musical Freestyle Design for Dressage Riders






Woodwind Studios is a dressage freestyle design firm specializing in top-notch editing of pre-recorded music and creative choreography design. I know your goal is to win at the highest levels, and your success is my business. I specialize in FEI freestyle tests (Junior-Grand Prix) plus USDF Third/Fourth Levels.

  • Rider Driven Design: My standard freestyle package includes features other designers charge extra for. You don't pay more for music selection done the right way - all riders get to hear music choices synced with their horse on video. I will give you a highly detailed worksheet to tell me precisely how choreography needs to be designed. I line up final edits to exactly match the choreography video so that you know your freestyle works. I give you whatever tools you need to learn your freestyle at no extra charge, and I bring unparalleled dedication to the job!                    
  • A Little "Lagniappe": On the Gulf Coast where I live, we use the French word "lagniappe" to mean that we're giving you something extra. I work with professional drummer, Kevin Hall, to create live recorded percussion tracks to give your music stand-out rhythm. As with my other services, there's no extra charge! If your music needs more drums, you've got it.                                                                                                
  • Education Equals Excellence: My advanced degree in music paired with my dressage education gives me the ideal background to design your musical freestyle. You can hear the difference my education makes in every Woodwind Studios freestyle. The artistry of my music editing translates to higher music and interpretation scores, and choreography strikes the perfect balance of difficulty for you and your horse.
