This DVD Sensitive Schooling volume 1 The Gaits Bend and Transitions by Sylvia Loch is a complete training package with or without your instructor. It's about training horses in a way that is pleasurable and logical to them. How many people say "my horse hates schooling!?" Yet for showing, jumping, eventing or dressage, who can do without it? Now, using latest technology throughout 4 hours of interactive footage, correct classical dressage training technique can be brought within your grasp.

The Gaits, Bend and Transitions focuses on the important early stages with the younger horse. Without laying good groundwork we cannot expect results. Working her novice stallion Prazer, Sylvia Loch talks you through it and explains how to develop FEEL i.e.

• what we should ask for and why
• when and how to ask
• why we ask in a particular way
• how it should feel in each moment to us
• how it should feel to the horse
• how to confirm - so the horse improves and remembers

With the correct FEEL, you will make your horse happy. He will learn how to free up and liberate his gaits. Eventually, he should be as proud and comfortable when you ride as when he plays in the field!

Click onto SUB-MENUS and see how other riders and horses cope. Over 20 different partnerships are featured on this DVD.

This DVD will show you how to work at home without compromising your horse. On screen follow each stage of the work, compare different situations, engage your mind; then visualise what you have seen when you ride. As the results unfold before your eyes and under saddle, you too can discover and promote balance, suppleness, engagement, impulsion, as well as harmonious and expressive gaits.

Sylvia Loch has been training and teaching classical riding both overseas and here in the UK for well over thirty years. She believes that successful schooling involves huge sensitivity, always being aware that every horse is different. Nevertheless the same basic principles of a good seat, good posture and the correct aids must be retained. The beauty of the classical approach is that your horse is never put under pressure but that everything remains clear and logical.
