Interpretation of "Classical": An approach to training where the horse's needs are the forefront consideration; with their vote mattering more than anything else.The methodology will be gradual, systematic and progressively enhancing for all types of horses and riders, without prejudice. There can be a mix of the major great Schools to facilitate the individual horse's needs but applied with avoidance of an 'idea of the month' approach.

Agreed to the CRC Charter: Yes
