Horses with a burr under their saddle

Girthiness is commonly associated with the consequences of tightening the girth too quickly when the saddle is first put on. But although there has been so much progress in the field of saddle making during the last decades and the awareness of the importance of saddle fitting and careful girthing has positively changed, many of our modern riding horses across all breeds are girthy. On reflection, this does not come as a surprise. What if the reason for the girthiness of a large part of the horses concerned were to be found in the low back position?

Straightening Training

Straightening Training


How Your Horse is Trained at the ARR Center

Over the course of approximately 5 weeks, the biomechanics of a flight animal can be transformed into those of a trained athletic horse. The horse’s natural crooked movements are corrected on the longe. When the Step 1 training goal is achieved, your horse can be further trained at our center under saddle. Thus, the horse’s newly found moving pattern can be consolidated and maintained in the work under saddle.

After this holistic training, the horse owner takes over. Please take some time for this important phase: let yourself be familiarized with the longeing technique, improve your seat on your horse and take individual riding lessons with our team.

While your horse is being trained at our center, you are always most welcome to visit. Come and see for yourself how our team is training your horse and how your horse’s movements (and straightness) are improving.
