Private Members Seminar with Uta Graf and Christoph Hess Whether it’s dressage, show jumping, cross country or leisure riding, the aims are the same – getting pleasure out of riding and from your equine partner, looking after horses in an appropriate manner while achieving your personal goals.
Uta Gräf’s training concept proves that competing successfully, looking after horses appropriately and close to their natural living conditions plus training using the correct guidelines are not mutually exclusive. “Scrape off the mud and practice fine riding.”At a seminar for private members of the German Riding Association, Uta Gräf and German Riding Association training ambassador Christoph Hess show how anyone can achieve a fine, classical riding style on motivated horses using horses of different ages and at different levels of training.
