Lectures

Theory lectures

Want to know more about the history of equestrian art, or why not go back even further and learn about the history of the horse? Or do you want to learn more about anatomy, biomechanics or equipment? In that case, a deep dive is in theory the best way. I give theory lectures from 1 to 3 hours (sometimes more!), as a complement to the regular riding lessons. A knowledge-based theory lays the foundation for a good understanding of the riding and the whole relationship with the horses.

The theories are usually given via Powerpoint and are a nice way to gain in-depth knowledge. Lectures can be given to both large and small groups, perfect for riding schools who want to dive into one or more subjects, or why not start a study circle at your stable with your stable mates?

In principle, all lectures can be customized. Suggested themes can be:

Horse anatomy and biomechanics – how should a horse move under rider?

The horse’s natural language – how do we best communicate with them? (and what does the latest science say?)

Rider’s seat – how do you anatomically sit best on your horse and how do you develop your feeling?

The history of the horse and the equestrian art – when did we start using the horse and for what?

Equipment – how and why do we use bit or bitless alternatives in the best way? What are the different types of saddles?

The horse’s gaits – how can we improve them?

Workshops & demos

Another way of applying theory can be a workshop or demonstration where I either bring a horse to your stable and lecture by showing with a horse, alternatively you come to me and I give a workshop at the facility I am at, Wiggeby Gård i Rosersberg or I can give a demo via Zoom. A demonstration in any subject you wish to be inspired or immersed in is a great way to see what to aim for in your education and how to pave the way forward. A fun and interactive way to apply theory.
