After years of observing the sport of dressage, Anja Beran now offers an eye-opening video analysis showing others how to see what she sees. Real video footage has been animated in order to offer contrasts between what is clearly undesirable development of the horse and what is horse-appropriate training. The theoretical foundations of the analysis are mainly provided by the guidelines for riding and driving of the German Equestrian Federation as well as the works of the Old Masters, on which they are based. What is rewarded a good score in the sport of dressage is no longer compatible with classical teachings and the guidelines!

The problem lies in the system—horses are trained with spectacular performances in mind, rather than well-being and a long and healthy future. Many riders labor under the illusion that they can take shortcuts on the correct path of training, without stopping to think about the physical and psychological strain on the horse. Exaggerated movements, when forced in an incorrect posture, often lead to physical damage in young horses. The same also applies for older horses, who are expected to perform difficult exercises without the correct preparatory supplying work. Movement patterns are created that no longer have anything in common with horses' natural gaits. Anja Beran's analysis is supported by Elisabeth Albescu, a veterinarian specializing in chiropractic treatment.
