Programme for Training the Horse and Rider

Basic Training of the Young Horse

Getting the 3 to 4 year old horse used to daily work on the lunge and gentle first contact with the rider. Backing and bringing on the young horse to correct obedience to leg and weight aids, achieving the correct rhythm in all three basic gaits, up to simple transitions and school figures.

If required, the young horse will be presented at entry level competitions in showing classes, dressage and showjumping.

Further Training of your Horse

New horses are first of all assessed regarding their abilities. Together, we will then discuss your wishes and objectives and establish a training schedule for your horse and yourself, if desired. You have unlimited access to all training sessions and will be briefed regularly on your horse’s progress. In case you are unable to personally attend your horse’s training, we offer the option of providing you with video recordings of your horse’s work on a regular basis. As your horse determines the time required for its training, we will regularly review progress and objectives and tailor them to your horse.

According to your horse’s talent and your training objectives, we offer additional training in Long Reins, work in hand or side saddle.

In training and riding horses, there is never only one true method, as each horse is an individual.

Remedial Horses

Remedial horses are worked gently and consistently. With these horses in particular, we would advise your regular attendance during this phase, as well as regular lessons in parallel, in order that you may continue working your horse correctly at home.

Private Lessons for You

During our lessons, we aim to teach the correct seat, giving light, nearly imperceptible aids, working the horse in hand and under saddle. The pupil will be prepared by us in such a way as to make working towards movements in the highest degree of collection enjoyable and easy. Our lessons are suitable for horses and riders of all grades.

Turnierbetreuung

Wie lange reite ich ab? Welche Bodenverhältnisse finde ich vor? Wie beeinflusst ein z.B. schwerer und tiefer Boden die Abreitezeit? Wieviel Zeit bleibt mir zum Einreiten?

Als Turnierreiter weiss man, dass trotz eines regelmäßigen Trainings die Anspannung und Unsicherheit vor der Prüfung eine gute Leistung mindern kann.

Uns ist es wichtig unsere ambitionierten Schüler auch auf dem Turnier bestens zu unterstützen. Wir betreuen unsere ambitionierten Schüler beim Abreiten genauso wie beim Training zuhause, so dass dem Schüler der Prüfungsdruck genommen wird. Dadurch hat er die Möglichkeit seine Trainingsleistung in die Prüfung mitzunehmen.

Placements

We regularly offer placements of several month’s duration. During this time, students are responsible for caring for the horses on the yard. In exchange, we provide daily tuition on our own horses, including work on improving the seat through regular lunge lessons. We also offer training in working horses in hand. In addition, students on placement will accompany us to competitions and learn how to support us in our work with the horses.
