An Advanced Gymnastic School to Improve the Horse’s Jump

An Advanced Gymnastic School to Improve the Horse’s Jump

VIDEO DESCRIPTION

Gymnastic jumping exercises are used to strengthen every aspect of the horse’s jumping mechanism. In this topic, Bernie schools Hanna Mauritzson and her Grand Prix jumper prospect, Cilandro, over a gymnastic designed to enhance his front end and ability to shorten his stride between elements. Cilandro was recently imported from Europe where he developed a dependance on his previous rider who “protected his front end.” Bernie and Hanna have been working with this horse to be more self-reliant, reactive and quick off the ground with his front end.

A Tribute to the Thoroughbred Sport Horse

A Tribute to the Thoroughbred Sport Horse

VIDEO DESCRIPTION

A narrated video presentation celebrating the extraordinary contribution the Thoroughbred horse has made in all the jumping disciplines. Until the very recent past Thoroughbreds dominated North America’s competitive jumping scene with their superior athleticism, heart and jumping prowess. Their popularity sadly declined as warmbloods descended en masse upon the horse show industry beginning in the early 1980s. Thoroughbreds seemed to virtually disappear as seemingly “easy-going” warmbloods gained momentum and cachet.

Advanced Equitation: Changing the Bend in the Counter Canter

Advanced Equitation: Changing the Bend in the Counter Canter

VIDEO DESCRIPTION

A common ride-off test in advanced equitation classes involves turning to a jump on the counter lead. This becomes a problem if your horse is overly bent to the outside in order to maintain the counter canter because there is no chance to get his eye on the jump. If a slight change of bend causes your horse to swap leads when zeroing in on the jump, you are also in trouble. To answer this question on course, the horse must be trained to maintain the counter lead while simultaneously changing the bend to the inside. In this video, Bernie teaches a sensitive horse how to achieve this.

Proper Leg Placement to Encourage Prompt Downward Transitions on Your Horse

Proper Leg Placement to Encourage Prompt Downward Transitions on Your Horse

VIDEO DESCRIPTION

An unstable or unintentionally displaced lower leg during downward transitions can send mixed signals to a horse. Bernie Traurig likes to call these “clashing aids.” If for instance, a rider squeezes with the lower leg behind the girth (or even brushes that area on a sensitive horse) while asking with the rein aids for the horse to come back, the horse will be confused and the transition will be anything but smooth.

Training the OTTB Horse - Session Two

Training the OTTB Horse - Session Two

VIDEO DESCRIPTION

Training Level Eventer and EquestrianCoach.com member, Kristen Schalck, gets a free training session from Bernie with her 9 year old OTTB (Off The Track Thoroughbred), JC. Watching the show jumping round Kristen presented, Bernie got a sense of just how he could help them. Kristen had some lower leg stability issues and JC had a tendency to get a bit too aggressive at the jumps, particularly in combinations, and jump past the arc.

Riding on the Bit

Riding on the Bit

VIDEO DESCRIPTION

For some equestrians it is the ultimate goal - to get your horse on the bit and experience that suppleness of poll and jaw, the engagement of the hindquarters, the acceptance of the rider’s hands, that fluid link between horse and rider.

Training the OTTB Horse

Training the OTTB Horse

VIDEO DESCRIPTION

EquestrianCoach.com member, Adult Amateur Jumper rider Stacy, reached out to us to get training help from Bernie for her off the track Thoroughbred horse, Diesel. Before the training session, Bernie familiarized himself with the duo by watching a video of them on course, determining what issues needed to be addressed. It became apparent that Stacy was having trouble maintaining an even pace on course, that Diesel avoided contact and wouldn’t use his neck over the jumps and got quite hot, occasionally bucking and evading the bit, between the fences.
