Training

Isabel’s teaching and training philosophy is to keep it simple.

Training a horse shouldn’t be complicated unless we, as riders, make it.  Isabel has a broad training background, and incorporates the German Training Scale to educate each horse in a correct and classical way. No matter whether the horse is a jumper, hunter, or endurance horse, all need to be responsive to the aids, move forward with impulsion, and accept contact.

During each training ride, Isabel gymnastizes the horse through different movements to increase suppleness and strengthen muscle. When a horse becomes physically and mentally stronger, it becomes lighter in the hand and will stay sounder.
