Guest training from England

Av L Viktoria M Sandberg - 21 april 2014 12:54

Happy rainy monday, we have had a glorious sunshine and some active days here, student Chloe has just left for her home in England, she will be missed! 

Summary of our training days, we started to feel the horses out riding at home to see which horse/es fitted best, Chloe is a talented young rider with a very good feeling for dressage and ability to ride and learn from both Donoso and Start. It was exciting to see also how the guys responded, this was the first time for them to do the role as teachers and I think they did the job great! Both are well willing and amibitious horses but neither of them are easy and automatic, you have to do it right to get it right. I believe in learning from getting it right, I do not think we learn from our mistakes so it is important the horse and student get as many rights into the experience as possible. Both D and S showed Chloe clearly what she needed to work on, how to use hear seat, focus on less hand and learn how to ride with legaids and weight, basically change the position and ride from back to front rather than front to back. 
Here from first day trying out horses at home.

Start and Chloe day 1

Day 2 we took D and S to a nearby training yard to use their arena. Focusing on straightness and getting the position of the form totally correct. Donoso proved to be a good teacher of flying changes, and Start helped Chloe to get her seat into the saddle, to improve her position and to use her sensitivity of aids for transitions and collection.


In the afternoon we did homework studying some of Spains best Grand Prix riders competing in glorious sunshine, Spain at its best! And I am presenting a new selected exclusive PRE for sale, Grand Prix calificado Escalera branded Curioso JLE, contact me via 

Day 3, Chloe now alittle more sure of the guys, and we could get into more focus and feel more secure with forms and collection.

And day 4, Chloe passed the final exam with these good transitions on Start!

We finished with some well earned hacking in the beautiful nature of El Escorial and of course eating!
