For the dressage novice as well as the Prix St. Georges competitor, this guide offers a unique approach to training rider confidence in combination with basic dressage principles. Based on Conrad Schumacher’s acclaimed clinics by the same name, the program begins with his “Prerequisites for Winning” in which the master coach illustrates the training and riding essentials—such as the horse’s correct neck position—that he insists must be in place before you can be assured success in the competitive arena. The DVD goes on to provide a number of Schumacher’s “Working Patterns”—intricate and challenging exercises intended to be repeated many times in succession without the rider stopping to analyze or worry about what went wrong and why. When these techniques are incorporated in a rider’s long-term, mid-term, and short-term show preparation, the rider will find herself eagerly awaiting the ring of the bell, confident, focused, relaxed, and ready to win.
Probably any point of view from Conrad Schumacher is worth of our attention. What is good about this video is it triage’s the most important for riders to focus on. However, one must pay detail attention to the content, and use your brain to think very hard whether what it says is applicable to your horse and riding situation.Learn More
