Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Vorm van dressuur met choreografie die door ruiters wordt uitgevoerd, meestal op muziek; was heel populair in Europa in de 16e tot de 18e eeuw. Paardenballet was oorspronkelijk ge├»nspireerd op cavaleriemanoeuvres en middeleeuwse toernooien. Uitvoeringen vonden buiten of in grote arena's plaats. Ruiters in kostuum voerden patronen en ingewikkelde manoeuvres uit met hun paarden, waaronder sprongen en acrobatische kunsten. Voor zover bekend is een van de eerste paardenballetten in Parijs uitgevoerd ter ere van het huwelijk van de hertog van Joyeuse in 1581.
