303 BASIC MILITARY RIDING: SECTION 17 -- THE TURN
What you'll learn
- Riders will be introduced to the pre-requisites for THE TURN according to USA Cav. 1935 instructions: SECTION 17.
- Riders will understand the sequential actions for 2 basic rein-actions spelled out in SECTION 17.
- Riders will understand the sensations the horse recieves via these AIDS and what these mean.
- Riders will know WHAT they should practice so the practice may be perfect instead of haphazard.
- This class is designed to be ASSIGNED to riders by their TRAINED TEACHERS.
If you are on this landing page, your riding instructor has sent you here. This is good news.
This class takes riders through the instructions for the opening and bearing rein actions as directed by the French and USA Cavalry instructions...instructions that have been 'established by reason and justified by experience". We will specifically study, line by line, the text from the instructions for Section 17: pages 162 and 163.
Riders who manage and impart this information exactly to their horses will be far ahead of the general population of horsepeople, who tend to simply wing it and ride in relative illiteracy. YOU will ride properly and conform absolutely to the directives.
The start of the horse's education (as distinguished from the 'starting' or 'breaking' period), is initiated by imparting the meaning of the OPENING REIN to him. This is a one-sided, leading rein action.
Immediately following his understanding of the OPENING REIN, the BEARING REIN action is introduced to him. This is the outer, corresponding rein.
The outer rein NEVER contradicts the inner rein. Therefore the rider/trainer must be certain that the HAND AIDS and rein-actions are in precise accordance with the intended meaning of these rein-actions, in the context of equitation, or, as is spelled out in the instructions: the language of sensations. (See SECTION 27.)
No more illiteracy and guesswork in the horseworld! 'Feel' is NOT guesswork. "Study; Practice; Mastery." This is the way real communication and liberty in horsemanship is achieved. Onward we go.
Who this course is for:
- Riders and Trainers at all levels and in all 'disciplines' since good riding = good riding.
1) Jane Frizzell has been called "an F.E.I. rider's secret weapon" and is known as a trainer's trainer. She has been riding for 50 years; 32 years as a professional. She started the original SCHOOLMASTERS' ACADEMY in 1994. RideVerbatim is her new venture in 2020.
Jane's own thorough education was overseen by un-compromising masters: the late Major Anders Lindgren, the late Dietrich von Hopfgarten, and the late João Oliveira. The first half of her career was fully supervised and spent on FEI horses whose foundations were rock, not sand— horses trained by geniuses like Rehbein, Klimke, Hinneman, and Mikolka.
2) Soñador XVIII demonstrates the textbooks and FEI requirements to the letter in the RLC Video Series. His education was made by the late Georg Theodorescu.
