My father always said to me: „Enjoy riding!“ …what I enjoy the most is when my horses become even more beautiful as a result of their training and when they have learned to respond to very subtle aids.“
Complicated or boring? Not at all! Working with cavaletti offers a great change to the daily training routine
and is a pleasure for horses and riders. Cavaletti-Training supports the horse’s natural movements: It is much more than just basic gymnastic training. It strengthens the muscles
it preserves the horse’s health and it improves the basic gaits: rhythm
expression and cadence develop through engaged steps over the poles.
Riding over cavaletti helps to train the ability to assess distances and it enhances coordination and balance. If we increase the training level systematically
the horse’s power and endurance
its ability to react and its agility will be improved. The horse learns to think for himself and to concentrate. In addition
cavaletti work trains the rider’s seat
gives him a better feeling for the horse
and teaches him to see a stride for jumping.
