Interpretation of "Classical": I believe that classical work is predominately about enabling the horse, through correct training, to be the best and most beautiful he can be within his own limitations. A classically trained rider is one who always strives to improve themselves in order to be the best they can be for their horse. A classically trained horse is treated with respect and patience in order to achieve strength and balance without using short-cuts or force, allowing him to live a healthy, long and productive life.

Interpretation of classical: A logical approach to training of horses and riders with horse welfare as the top priority. A system of training which takes into account biomechanics of the horse’s movement and teaches riders how to move with the horse in balance and with softness. Correct training, with no shortcuts or gadgets, takes time for both horses and riders hence patience and commitment to continuous self-improvement is required from both classical riders and trainers.
