Reining at the WEG Normandy 2014

qh_whimpy8132

The World Equestrian Games is the most prestigious and competitive international event for reining, and it only comes once every four years.

Reining made its appearance on the FEI World Equestrian Games scene in 2002 and became an FEI discipline in 2001 with its big international debut at the FEI World Equestrian Games at Jerez.

Whilst in the past people had difficulties associating the image of Italy with that of cowboys, Reining has soared in popularity among Italian horsemen, and today many of the worlds best riders hail from “il bel paese.”

We will be present at this years WEG in France, and personally I cant wait for the chance to see some of the worlds best reiner’s in action.

If you are interested in learning more about the exciting sport of Reining, we have a special week long training holiday for experienced riders of either English or Western disciplines, looking to understand why this sport is so catchy. Stay in one of our Tuscan apartments, enjoy the pool, the landscape and the fabulous food – and work on your riding with our world class Quarter

Whether you’re interested in improving your skills, horsemanship,  horse training, or want to learn specific reining maneuvers, our week long intensive reining course with Franco our international trainer is perfect for you.

During the week you will ride every day both morning and afternoon for one hour with Franco. On the final morning you will have a mini competition, with Franco as the judge to test the skills you have learnt in a competitive setting.

Incorporate the basic concepts of Reining as a training method.  You will learn the importance of gaining control over your horses feet, mind and body without resistance. The ultimate aim in a well trained reining horse. The idea behind early lessons is teaching the horse how to connect his mind and feet together to work with us rather than against us.

Work with communication between horse and rider and maneuvers of a higher level; maximizing the horse’s talents and eliminating the resistance.

The course emphasizes basic development of the reining horse with the goal of having your horse go where you want him to go, at the speed you want to go, with the attitude you want him to have.
