Horses and riders from five states are in Tulsa this weekend for the Oklahoma Dressage Society Spring Show. If you aren't familiar with dressage,  it involves performing specific figures and maneuvers on horseback.  

"Dressage is French for training, and so it is just educating yourself and your horse on different movements and moving up the ladder to levels," said Lily Rhoades.

"Each level gets more difficult and each test gets a little more difficult."

About 80 riders competed this weekend starting at the beginning training level all the way up to the highly skilled Grand Prix level.
