There is nothing that can kill the spirit of your horse like the boredom of “arena-work”: everyday training drills, same closed space and endless repetitions.
There is no other place that allows you to touch and practice everything that you need both for jumping and dressage than the nature. Forests, with their magnificent up-the-hill and down-the-hill paths, different surfaces and ever-changing landscapes are created to support you and your horse in expanding balance, exploring body awareness and learning everything you have to know about CONNECTION & COLLECTION.
At the same time, during practice in the forest people and horses are light-hearted, happy and their minds stay light and lively. The situations change as quickly as the landscape and the forest paths, and we learn how to adapt and create, instead of fighting or pushing our “rights” and “truths”. In this environment we can learn what it truly means to BE TOGETHER.
