In order to raise a motivated and relaxed riding horse, the keeping conditions are of the utmost importance alongside consistent training.
Alongside working in the horse track, all horses are regularly ridden at the estate in the fields.
If the horse has learned to balance and to go forward diligently, the trainer works out its suppleness and abbility to support the rider.
First, the rider sits passively in the saddle, the horse reacts on action of a leg of the trusted leader. Gradually, he takes the command.
After the correct training, the first sitting up in the saddle is usually unproblematic.
The lunging promotes balance and muscle growth of the horse without prematurely burdening it with the rider's weight.
Getting to work: At the beginning, the horse learns to concentrate solely on "its" person and to accept help as well as action of a leg.
Tethering, cleaning, riding and free running on the riding arena - so the young horses at the LGKS are very well prepared.
at Kemper & Schlomski estate
Every horse is different, but they all have one thing in common: they absorb like a sponge from the first day, both the positive and in the negative experience. For this reason, at the Kemper & Schlomski estate, we attach great importance to the consistent training of our horses, as well as appropriate horse keeping and careful selective breeding.
Tethering, cleaning, riding and free running on the riding arena - the young horses at LGKS are well familiar with the conditions long before the beginning of the actual training for riding horses.
The sensitive adaptation to saddle, bridle and lunge features a first step from the young pony to the riding horse. Then comes the work on the lunge. It enhances balance, concentration and muscle building of the horse, avoding the premature overload with the rider's weight. In addition, it learns to understand voice and body language as action of leg.
Over time, the horse finds its own basic pace and by this mean achieves smooth stepping forward movement in all three basic gaits.
With the right preparation, the first getting on the horse is usually unproblematic. In this phase, it is important to connect familiar (person on the ground) positive with something new (rider in the saddle). First, the rider sits passively in the saddle, the horse reacts as usual to an action of leg of the longtime leader. Little by little the rider takes over the command.
If the horse has learned to balance under the rider and to move forward diligently, the trainer provides lessons of suppleness and dependance futher such as side movements, hand and tempo changes as well as „missing the strength to surrender the reins“.
In addition, besides the horse track all horses are ridden at the LGKS in the field. In the hilly area the muscles and balance are developing further, the horse gains self-confidence and learns to deal even with unknown situations.
