Cavalletti Safety Tip

Cavalletti Safety Tip

VIDEO DESCRIPTION

A few years ago, in preparation for a clinic abroad, Bernie asked the clinic host to have some cavalletti at hand in the arena. The host refused to provide them because two pony club members had recently been injured when their horses tripped over the cavalletti and fell on their riders. He has taken this information to heart, and since then he warns his students about the potential danger of cavalletti when they are negotiated the wrong way. Cavalletti can be an invaluable tool when schooling your horse, so find out how be safe out there and use them the right way.

Equitation - An American Tradition of Excellence

Equitation - An American Tradition of Excellence

VIDEO DESCRIPTION

According to Bertalan de Nemethy, “nothing of any substance can be built on a flimsy foundation, and the horse and the rider who don’t know what they are doing will always fall far short of realizing their full potential.” It is with this in mind that we share this topic with you, for the fundamental principles of equitation begin with mastering the basics of classical American Forward Riding. This mastery takes time, determination and dedication but yields a riding style that is not only beautiful to watch, but effective in practice.
