“Clas­si­cal” Train­ing

Dressage Today - - Tips From Trainers Who Teach -

The word “clas­si­cal,” for me, means that the horse is rid­den with­out un­due stress and in a way that not only does no bod­ily harm but al­lows the horse to get stronger and more ath­letic. The horse moves in such a way that he uses his body nat­u­rally and op­ti­mally. That means that the rider from an in­tel­lec­tual, emo­tional, men­tal and phys­i­cal stand­point has the abil­ity to fig­ure out how to put the horse in that op­ti­mal po­si­tion.
