Classical Riding and the Classical Riding Club by Sylvia Loch - Founder

The term classical riding has, of late, become something of a catch phrase. It is on the lips of the great and the good, it is also bandied about by the uninitiated.

The Rollkur Debate

Poster 1

Sylvia Loch and the CRC has been very proactive over the years re it's objections to the practice of rollkur as an exercise or modus operandi  for the training of horses of all disciplines.

After many petitions and appeals to the FEI, we believed the practice to have been discredited. It is now abundantly clear that the use of this brutal form of training is still rife throughout the equestrian world.  As a result we are republishing these editorials and notes from the past for those who may never have seen them before.  It also illustrates how much we all tried in the past.

Once again CRC is committed to its 2015  campaign to stop this brutal practice.
