Training for the rider

reiterausbildungThe knowledge of old French riding masters from Pluvinel to Gueriniere, the school of lightness from Baucher to Oliveira form the foundation of the training.

Riding out of impulses instead of power.

Serenity from secure balance and communication through body language. Harmony through knowledge, respect and understanding.

The coordination of the aids is trained successfully. The correct breathing technique is used as well as the visualization effect.

The links or. Right-handedness of the rider is integrated into the leaning therapy (straightening) for horse and rider.

Auxiliary reins and special bits are not used.

A particular role model in the training and promotion of the riding students and horses entrusted to me was and is, in particular, the riding art and philosophy of my teacher NUNO OLIVEIRA:

“Dressage as a search for harmony, lightness and roundness. Riding is not an act of strength, but an expression of dance elegance. "

All year round, 3-day introductory courses are offered, which include horse riding in theory and practice and training in fine-tuning. This is followed by 5-day courses that expand basic knowledge and skills and work on special topics.

You can bring your own horses. The lessons take place individually. Additional or regularly requested private lessons can also be booked.

Riders with gaited horses and horses from other riding styles (westerns) also successfully take part in our programs.
