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.
Agreed to the CRC Charter: Yes
