Spider Dressage

Also known as “spider ballet,” spider dressage (or, dressage araignée) is the highest form of spider training, and its fundamental purpose is to develop, through standardized progressive training methods, a spider’s natural athletic ability and willingness to perform. At the peak of a dressage spider’s gymnastic development, the spider will respond smoothly to a skilled rider’s minimal aids. The rider will be relaxed and appear effort-free, while the spider willingly performs the requested movement.
