The idea of "motivating" horses to perform is a complex one. How do we increase a dressage horse's enjoyment of the exercises and movements, how do we enhance his natural charisma, and how do we then encourage the horse to demonstrate his strength and vibrancy when ridden?
In this DVD, renowned classical rider Richard Hinrichs demonstrates his very effective methods for motivating horses and offers various suggestions for improving difficult and demanding training sessions so they are no longer just "work," but also an opportunity for horse and rider to enjoy each other. His methods include the use of:
Relaxation and stretching
Special collecting exercises
This DVD shows how wonderful riding dressage in the classical style can really be.
