Top minds in the horsemanship industry have collaborated to share the secrets of the Training Scale with you and your horse. By bridging the gap between dressage and natural horsemanship, Christoph Hess and Parelli are ensuring a better future for both.
The Scale of Training Box Set features Parts I and II of The Scale of Training: Training a Happy, Healthy Dressage Horse. Both DVDs feature Christoph Hess and Parelli collaborating and sharing techniques, strategies, and valuable lessons that set you on the path to top-level dressage while maintaining - even improving - your relationship with your horse.
Part I features Christoph and the Parelli Team leading a group of riders through the first three elements of the Training Scale: Rhythm, Relaxation and Contact. These elements are essential in building a solid foundation, and as Christoph coaches the riders, the Parelli team offers valuable natural tips and techniques that can be applied to dressage at any level.
Part II picks up where Part 1 left off, with Christoph schooling riders through the pinnacle elements of the Scale: Impulsion, Straightness, and Collection. Christoph teaches the riders how to improve accuracy, posture, and balance, while Linda educates them on ways to utilize knowledge of horse behavior and psychology.
Acclaimed FEI dressage judge and German FN trainer Christoph Hess has once again joined forces with Linda Parelli to illustrate how practical exercises based on the classical Training Scale and natural horsemanship theory can combine to develop happy, healthy horses.
Over the course of eight lessons, Christoph guides four students - Parelli Professional Liz Jones, eventer Tik Maynard, and dressage rider Mette Larsen - through a series of exercises that show just how effectively the classical Training Scale applies to horses and riders from various disciplines and aptitude levels. The classical Training Scale truly is universal!
Together, these insights lead to more harmonious, effective, rewarding relationships with our horses.
