This is a modern Andalusian but compare it with the original illustrations of warhorses and you'll see the similarities. Medieval destriers were NOT draught horses. You only need to look at paintings and illuminations for it to be patently obviously (riding my own hobby-horse here!). THIS is the modern descendant of the destrier still looking something like, and NOT a Clydesdale FGS.

Dressage - most commonly translated to mean "training"- is a competitive equestrian sport, considered by the International Equestrian Federation as "the highest expression of horse training" and where "horse and rider are expected to perform from memory a series of predetermined movements".

Gentile da Fabriano: Detail of Adoration of Magi Gentile da Fabriano, Horses by Real Distan on Flickr
Details from a medieval painting of horses. Although of course it cannot be confirmed how realistically this painting depicts this specimen, the horse with the blue eyes is quite striking. It has a clear blaze, so it could be the Splash marking giving it those attention-catching eyes; or is it perhaps a very early example of Champagne (look at its coat color), or some other dilution? We will most probably never know...

Fighting knights and fighting horses! Interesting that the horses are not shown as stallions - the latter being a common motif in medieval warhorse illustrations.
