You and your horse have many abilities. We can help you to develop them to the maximum potential.

Your active participation in the process is necessary for achieving a good result and we give you the tools.

We help you to set goals and give you a system to work with.

Dressage Rider Workshops

Teaching Classical Dressage: Dressage Instructors' Clinics

Module I: Laying the foundation

Purpose: To provide a theoretical base as well as many new ideas for training and teaching dressage. This clinic will be a forum for open discussions and exchange of ideas with input and active participation expected of everyone. Instructors will be encouraged to maintain a personal style of teaching while developing a sense of unity with their peers and working towards a common goal.

 

Format: Four days of riding and instructional theory, demonstrations of theory put into practice and applied teaching with subsequent evaluation and discussion, as well as riding sessions with your own horse. Module I is the first in a series of three modules of dressage instructor clinics. Module II deals with the movements in First through Fourth Level in greater detail. Module III addresses the requirements of FEI level work.

 

Module II: 1st through 4th level

Purpose: To encourage and stimulate the exchange of information and knowledge in order to develop the ability of the participants to communicate information to others. Instructors will be encouraged to maintain a personal style of teaching and to participate actively by contributing their own ideas and insights. We will continue in the same veins as Module I, and discuss in depth all the aspects of the movements that are required through Fourth Level. This work is intended to give all participants a more clear understanding of the progressive work required to reach the Fourth Level. Prerequisite: Module I

 

Format: Four days of riding and instructional theory, demonstrations of theory put into practice, and applied teaching with subsequent evaluation and discussion, as well as riding sessions with your own horse. There will also be a demonstration of exercises that can be used when longeing the rider to improve the rider's position.
