Two-time German Olympian and World Champion event rider Ingrid Klimke, daughter of the late six-time Olympic gold medalist, Dr. Reiner Klimke, will focus on the importance of cavalletti exercises for dressage. "It is variety - dressage, jumping, hacking - that builds up different muscles in the horse," she explains. "Classical training is always multi-faceted, and fitness is the one result."
Welcome and Introduction. Explanation of how to first introduce the horse to the cavaletti. How to walk and trot over polls and how to use your position. Placement between poles should be approximately 1.20m or 5 feet apart approximately.
