Elegant Dressage Training: Part 2 (DVD): Basic Training Provides a Solid Foundation by Anja Beran
When we dream of a perfect dressage horse, we might imagine one that exhibits lovely, elevated movements, aims to anticipate the rider's thoughts, and it seems to glide through the arena as if by magic. But how to accomplish this goal with the horse we already have? A sound and careful basic training is the most important foundation for any horse's successful development.
In this DVD, Anja Beran and her team show how they work with young horses to find "magic." Following proper work on the longe line and a careful start under the saddle, Beran demonstrates how first the steps of lateral movement lead quite naturally to the first steps of collection.
The Elegant Dressage Training series aims to develop and create a better understanding of how the use of appropriate methods, adapted to the horse's needs, contributes substantially to the horse's mental and physical health. In this DVD, Dr. Matilda Holmer-Rattenhuber explains bio-mechanical aspects of dressage training and horses.
