Basic Training

Theory/lecture

Theoretical introduction to the biomechanics of the horse: How does as a flight animal react in the wilderness an how do those movement and behaviour patterns influence our riding horses? Why do they limit the performance of our sport horses are responsible for many rideability issues and widespread health problems?
Detailed explanation of straightness training and anatomically correct horsemanship according to ARR: How does my horse learn to move like an athlete in order to reduce the risk of injury? How can I ride my horse with fine aids? How can I achieve a horse that travels with a positively moving back and in honest collection?
