Interpretation of "Classical": Classical riding means following the tried and tested methods of the Old Masters as passed down through the centuries: working with nature, never against it and always with kindness and gentle persuasion. This results in a harmonious partnership between man and horse. The ethos of Classical horsemanship incorporates love, humility, patience and empathy, which is very akin to my Christian faith.

Interpretation of "Classical": Classical is the training of the horse to make him lighter in the hand, more weight carried on the hind leg, and all taught with by a kind and mindful rider, who wants to get the best from their horse. The horse's body should be healthier and his mind should be at ease with the work.
