Path to Performance™ I – Relaxation & Release of Tension
How to relax your horse, address & prevent harmful tension
In this one-day seminar you explore how to recognize tension patterns in your horse and address them with bodywork and guided exercises. We also look at our own levels of relaxation, how to improve it in our interaction with our horses and how we can identify and change unhelpful behavior patterns. We will practice bodywork techniques with horses, guided exercises and exercises in the saddle. (No riding needed, if not desired.)

Path to Performance™ II – Creating a Supple Horse
Helpful concepts and exercises for mental & physical suppleness
In this one-day seminar—which builds on P2P I “Relaxation”—you explore the concepts of mental and physical suppleness in the horse, how a lack of suppleness can be detrimental to the horse’s well being and how to create a supple horse by making suppleness the guiding principle. We will learn and practice exercises on the ground and in the saddle.

You gotta have it! Exploring RHYTHM
More than the foundation of the Training Scale: Our horses move in rhythm, breathe in rhythm, ARE rhythm! How do we create the perfect rhythm or rather ‘allow’ it to develop? What is required of the rider? Explore the topic of rhythm with other participants and your horse. Find your and your horse’s individual rhythm and be prepared to be surprised. End the day by riding to YOUR music!
Path to Performance™ III – Gymnasticizing for Wellness™
An introduction into systematic gymnasticizing of the horse.
For those riders, who want to improve their horse’s strength and agility to enhance overall wellness and optimize performance, no matter what their level and riding discipline.
Horses should be able to do moderate work for 3 hours throughout the day. We will pay special attention to individual conformation and level of ability. (Based on classical principles according to HDV12 – German Cavalry Manual for Training Horse & Rider, original source of the Training Scale.)
Note: Riders, who did not participate in P2PI & II (Relaxation & Suppleness) and did not do the ‘P2P homework’, will please need to review materials before the clinic (will be provided).
