Tips

Don't Wait For The Perfect Conditions

ST Instructor Zaneta Georgiades from South Africa started with Straightness Training a few years ago.

Zaneta lives in a rural and remote area with her herd of horses and she often has to deal with high temperatures and burning sun in her country.

But these challenging circumstances didn't witheld her from making huge progress.

In this video you can hear more about her struggles, plateaus, growth and all the amazing experiences with her horses on her fascinating Straightness Training journey.

If It's Important, You'll Find A Way...

If it's not... you'll find an excuse!

But then you'll never get anything done.

So once you have a clear goal in mind and you have a positive mindset about it, take care not to wait until everything is just right.

Make no excuses, just get started and grow as you go!

Because I guerantee you....

It will NEVER be perfect!

There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions!

So stop making excuses, just find a way, as Zaneta did.

And the brand new ST Mastery Entry Course will help you with that!

Compound Exercises vs Isolation Exercises

When it comes to training horses – and also when it comes to fitness training for humans – there are two types of exercises:

1. Compound exercises
2. Isolation exercises

Already in the 18th and 19th century riding grandmasters favoured one over the other. For example, François Robichon de La Guérinière (1688–1751) and Gustav Steinbrecht (1808–1885) favoured the traditional and academical compound exercises and François Baucher (1796–1873) favoured and invented a lot of revolutionary and fancy looking isolation exercises (where his first method was rather harsch, but his milder second method is still used nowadays).

First, let’s have a look at the definition of compound and isolated exercises and then let’s address the benefits and drawbacks of each type of exercises, so we can make a conclusion at the end.

Be a researcher in your lab

In Straightness Training we encourage STudents to be a researcher in your own lab.

That is a metaphor we use in ST and it's about creating your own laboratory with your horses so you can experiment with the concepts, techniques and approaches you learn in ST.

It's a lab to put the theory into practice, to use the concepts, frameworks and tools and to fill in the details and to find the hidden lessons. Because we can walk the path with you, but we cannot do it for you. And it's better to not walk in the footsteps of the old grandmasters, but to search what they were searching for.
