Your horse must be relaxed, rhythmical, impulsed, supple and engaged thru the back.  If the foundation work is correct the horse will be a pleasure to ride.

Written Commentary:

Hello, this is Ryanne Davis and this is the first of a series of submissions for the Associate Trainer Program where I will be discussing the development of a horse named Ariel. Ariel is a 16-year-old Arabian who was ridden for several years of her life with her nose pinned to her chest so that she was severely behind the vertical, which caused her to develop a lot of back and body problems since she was not encouraged to work through her back. But she has been on the road to recovery with A2R with me for several months now and I am going to share pieces of that road with you here in a series of videos. So to start with, this is me riding her about 6 …

From the Blog!

Join me as I post weekly blogs covering many topics relating to Classical Foundation Training. I have intentionally left out the word "dressage" because many people have a negative association with the prevalent "crank and spank" approach or that it is a sport for only those who are afraid to jump.

Dressage as it is meant to be is an understanding of how to best optimize a horse's movement and ability to carry a rider, surely a benefit for any horse, any discipline. It is also important in maintaining your horse's safety, soundness and sanity.
