“Alone you are strong, together unbeatable”
ABOUT: We are Light Fighters, an elite dressage club on the german server 16, Raindrop Farm. The club was founded on May 7th of 2020.
In contrast to most other german clubs, our club only uses the english commands for dressage. Our club also contains an organized club structure. We have multiple riding instructors so that everyone can be supported individually, according to their needs. We use a few horse breeds for our dressage (Andalusian, Lusitano, Arabian & Welsh Pony).
We’re also trying to strengthen our bond outside of SSO. For our community, we stream all our training sessions on Twitch. That also includes our SSD routines from the beginning up to the finished result, which shows their making behind the scenes.
