Success through Cavaletti-Training
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, power, 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. This film shows everything you need to know for your own training: • Cavaletti work in walk and trot at the lunge line • Ridden walk, trot and canter training on a straight line and on a circle for young as well as for experienced horses • Gymnastic jumping exercises • Pocket-sized guide showing set-up and distances included
Bonus: Footage of Dr. Reiner Klimke as well as the Olympic stallion Damon Hill NRW during his first years of training
