Welcome to Dressage In Lightness Online, we have developed an easy to use site which enables all equine enthusiasts to improve their relationship with their horse, develop their knowledge and skills and ultimately create a picture of beauty and confidence whilst never losing the respect.
Initially you should make yourself familiar with “OUR SYSTEM”, you will find this in the “ABOUT” drop down menu at the top of the page.
Our system is an easy to understand process that we move through while we work with the horses. It is important that you follow all the steps to confirm how your horse is progressing.
You will also find the “HOW TO” menu at the top of each page. Before you commence any of the exercises you should have a thorough look at the description of how to either set up the equipment or execute the exercise.
For any terms you may be unfamiliar with we have a “GLOSSARY”, this is also at the top of each page, we have presented this in alphabetical order for ease of use. We have hyperlinked glossary words or terms in all the descriptions that you may be unfamiliar with.
Once you are at the stage of moving onto the videos you have a few options –
OUR SYSTEM – In OUR SYSTEM you will find a written description of what you will want to achieve, there is a drop-down menu with our 5 stages of training. You should start at the beginning and work slowly through all the stages step by step.
CASE STUDIES – We have many different horses sent for training, some for 1 -3 weeks and others for 1 – 6 months. We have videoed almost every session from the commencement of their time here to the day they go home. Generally finishing with a lesson with the owner.
AVOCA PARK HORSES – We have created educationals on some of our home bred horses, as they are all in different stages of their training there are some interesting issues that we work through.
RACE HORSES – Part of what we do at Avoca Park Equestrian is re-hablitate and pre-train racehorses, this includes our own Avoca Joseph. In this section you will see the process we go through on a daily basis.
BACKING PROCESS – This is commonly known as breaking in. We occasionally get asked to go through the whole process, you will see from start to finish how we do this. We recommend working with a professional if this process is something you would like to be a part of.
HANDLING – Here you will find educationals on as many different facets of horse handling and management that we can think of. This one will also be good for the kids. 😊
Our videos are edited as little as possible as we want you to see exactly the process we go through.
We hope you enjoy your time here and if you have thoughts at all on things that you see or would like to see, please feel free to contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
