Training program overview

This program contains six training sessions with triple Olympic medallist Charlotte Dujardin, where she shares her deep knowledge about riding. She starts with the more fundamental parts like contact and suppleness and then moves on to collection and extensions.

The program follows the scales of training and also has one session focusing on the independent seat. In each session you will also find some bonus tips on the same theme, to maximize inspiration and learning.

Session 1

Establishing the Contact

Charlotte explains how her focus is to help the horse to use it’s body in a good way, and to work evenly on both reins.

Session 2

Creating Suppleness

Charlotte shows the suppling exercises she uses on all her horses. She talks you through how to do them and what mistakes to avoid.

Session 3

Reactiveness to the Aids

Having your horse in front of the leg is fundamental, but hard. This is something you need to train a lot, and Charlotte explains how.

Session 4

The Independent Seat

Without an independent seat it’s very hard for your horse to work correctly. Charlotte demonstrates how she works with her position in the saddle.
Session 5

Straightness

Charlotte describes what straightness is – and isn’t – and how to learn to feel if the horse is straight or not.
Session 6

The Extended Canter

We now have all the building blocks to be able to ride the perfect extended canter. Charlotte talks you through how to do it.
