I n a world where it seems we are inun­dated with a myr­iad of train­ing styles and heated dis­cus­sions over the best path to Grand Prix, the dres­sage com­mu­nity is for­tu­nate to have Hu­ber­tus Sch­midt. Sch­midt’s ever cor­rect, sym­pa­thetic and light clas­si­cal meth­ods prove time and again that fol­low­ing the ba­sic prin­ci­ples of our Train­ing Scale is the sys­tem of suc­cess. Dres­sage Train­ing On­line (DTO) of­fers a va­ri­ety of on­line learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties with top in­ter­na­tional tal­ents and we are over­joyed and so thank­ful to add Sch­midt to our ever-grow­ing ros­ter.

Our Sch­midt se­ries was shot at this year’s In­ter­na­tional Omaha in Ne­braska (you can read the story on p. 42). We share with you Part 1 of this video se­ries for free! In this seg­ment, Sch­midt presents a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to wit­ness the foun­da­tion of his train­ing, in­clud­ing the im­por­tance of stretch­ing, re­lax­ation and swing.

Sch­midt asks a spec­tac­u­lar 5-year-old horse and lovely rider to warm up with a stretchy, relaxed trot, pro­gress­ing to balanced tran­si­tions in and out of the can­ter. Af­ter watch­ing this first part of the se­ries you’ll cer­tainly want to watch them all. As such, we of­fer a free month at Dres­sage­To­day­On­line.com/30free to all Dres­sage To­day read­ers.

No mat­ter what path you take to reach your train­ing goals, you can never go wrong with the clas­si­cal stylings of Sch­midt. His no-non­sense ap­proach wins decade af­ter decade. Watch Part 1 of this se­ries for free at Dres­sage­To­day­On­line.com/hu­ber­tus, then con­sider let­ting DTO be your go-to for on-the-go learn­ing.
