Description

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. Anja Ilona Beran learned the art of classical equitation in the stable of Manuel Jorge de Oliveira, a pupil of the well-known Nuno Oliveira. She runs her own training facility where she works with horses of all different breeds, from the age of three up to the most advanced exercises. Classical equitation, around for centuries, is for Beran the origin of all equestrian knowledge. She feels that classical training-and ONLY through classical training-can excellence be achieved in ALL riding disciplines. 82 minutes
