Riding with motivation and enthusiasm are important pre-requisites to creating a partnership that is equally pleasurable for the horse. Successful Grand Prix rider Uta Gräf’s aim is fine riding on keen horses. The second film in the three part series shows which influences the rider can use to get close to this ideal. Highlight: Uta Gräf talks about training her successful horses from horseback.

Included on the DVD:
  • Choosing the right horse
  • Finding the right trainer
  • Instruction and stable culture
  • Riding without fear through good husbandry and training
  • Stress-free riding
  • Seat and posture exercises
Uta Gräf has made a name for herself on the international scene through her fine classical riding style which is particularly demonstrated during her harmonious performances. She has been a member of the B-Kader dressage team since 2011 and was on the long list for the London 2012 Olympics. Her unusual combination of ambitious dressage riding and natural horse care in groups and open stabling have made her a trailblazer of the changing attitude to the horse and dressage. Uta Gräf lives with her partner Stefan Schneider at Gut Rothenkircher Hof in Kirchheimbolanden.

Friederike Heidenhof has been training with Uta Gräf since 2002 and has been following her competitive career since Uta’s first success at regional S-Level. Having been trained in her youth following the “old school” method, she is particularly keen to show that classical training methods are not obsolete, but are more relevant now than ever.
