This is the website of my trainer friend, Paul Dufresne. He has proven to be a very good teacher in that he is fine with adapting what he knows to the student's desire to approach something differently. He worked with Cisco and I brilliantly when he was here last, while I worked only in a cordeo, and only a bitless bridle when we rode.

He has some useful articles on his website, some good photos and a nice video of him with his last stallion, Quimerico.

Also photos of his Freisian stallion, Ljibbe, who I fell in love with. If I was a very rich person (which I am not), I would buy Ljibbe.

Bianca, that is funny...
But I think this one is aimed at us!

Quote:
Often well-meaning, they believe a horse is tight in the back when actually he's offering you his back, they think a straight line from the bit to your hand with the two of you nicely in contact is cruel, and that it's kinder to let the horse find his own balance - which generally means out of balance, with his forelegs the first to suffer.... but who really cares?

it is meant for all those people who think dressage riders are cruel and then are cruel themselves in a different way.

A horse is not a bike.
He is not made to ride and it takes enormous preparation not to harm him while riding.
First on ground and then mostly on the rider.

Indeed I agree with Josepha, riding a horse with no training, no collection is damaging. Maybe this is felt not immediately but this will injure a horse eventually. The force of bits and spurs in some Classical Dressage is by some viewed as cruel because you can see the discomfort of the horse bu it is less damaging for its physical health.

So here we combine the best of both worlds, no injuries due to uncollected riding and no discomfort or hurting by bits and spurs !

So just wandering through the forest is not treating your horse well... its the same as feeding your child candy .. he will have no teeth years later although he enjoyed the candy very much.

Problem solved ;)

Heather Moffett's site, who teaches you how to absorb your horses movement correctly so that it causes no damage to the horses back. She does this via her simulators. You can find her saddles on there to and her own forum, which is full of lots of info and friends. She also trains her own teachers to go out and teach others to ride correctly for the sake of the horse. You can find Becky on there to who does all the ground work with her horses who also does clicker training. :D

When we are on the horse I am a great believer that it is us with our positions that block the horses movement, if we are tight in our bodies tense somewhere. When I am in the correct position my gal will carry herself alot better and so do other horses. That is why if we are teaching our horses to be collected and carry themselves correctly we should only do the same with ourselves.

So this is why I do pilates to free up my body and become strong in the right areas allowing me to be stable and aligned. :D And that is why if I was a beginner I would send them on one of Heather's simulator courses as it is amazing what beginners can do after being taught correctly how to absorb the movements of the horse. Many on EE send there other halfs to go on the course and they come back ending up being able to ride better than them in a few days when those who sent them have been riding for years and struggle to do the same :roll: as we have all the past habits to release of that we hold. :lol:
