Romanesque

Canter In Hand & Two-Tempi Changes

After a few weeks filled with groundwork and longeing with Romanesque, I started to combine it with work in hand.

And gradually, over the last couple of weeks, we're progressing from doing the sequence in walk, in trot, and now also in the canter.

Of course, there's a lot to 'polish' and refine, but again, the mind didn't forget what it learned.

Therefore, the mind is not the limiting factor at the moment, it's more the body that has to grow stronger and get more flexible so it will be more mobile, and that just takes time.

Observe First, Produce Later

This is a video of the very first training session with Romanesque and Prince Elmelund in the new riding arena.

Now about this 'training', it was not really about 'teaching' or 'optimizing' quality, but an 'observational' training, to observe their body, mind, heart and soul and their opinion about the new working environment.

Riding With Two Sticks

From 1 to 5 September 2017 the ST Instructors from the Netherlands, UK, Germany, US, Brazil and South Africa came to the Netherlands for the exclusive ST Instructor Clinic.

Special focus in this clinic was on ST at liberty and riding with two sticks for the simple reason to get our horses in the highest mental state possible, where they are not only willing to meet our requests, but also taking responsibility for the actual behavior.

Zaneta Georgiades ST Instructor from South Africa came already a bit earlier to the Netherlands for a meeting about the ST Evaluation Program, and in this video you'll see Zaneta for the very first time riding brideless with my horse Romanesque:

Pirouette from the concave side

This is my horse Romanesque in the canter pirouette and I ask it from the 'groundwork' position, that's when you are positioned on the horse's concave side, then the horse will be cantering towards you.

You can also do the canter pirouette when you are positioned on the convex side of the horse, then the horse will turn away from you. I will make a video of that soon 😉
