The Grand Prix Course is based on Classical Principles

Improve your horse’s body in harmony with your horse. 

Ride the energy into your hand instead of controlling it with your hand and use the right exercises to improve the balance of your horse.

In my opinion that is what classical training is all about.  

As a trainer, national team coach of the Finnish dressage team and with this online course I want to teach riders how to apply the classical principles to get the best results.

And the good news? With success stories from all over the world, this method works for every dressage rider.

You don't need an expensive horse to get looseness and expressive movement

This course is for riders that want to reach the highest level without forcing their horse into a “round frame”. 

It’s for riders that want to ride the Grand Prix movements without compromising the health of their horse.

And of course it is easier for horses with more talent to perform exercises such as piaffe, but any horse can do this.

''My message is that every horse can move with an uphill balance with a soft connection and looseness in the body. It just takes the right training.''

Step #03 How to introduce the Piaffe and Passage to your horse

There are several exercises that you can use to improve the balance of your horse. Rien explains which exercises these are and when to use them. As a result, the haunches will get a carrying function instead of pushing. It’s very important that you get a good idea of which aids you need to give for which exercise, so we give you a system of aids.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here you'll find the most frequent questions and answers. Do you have another question? Let us know in the chat below!

To get the most out of this training, it will be useful if you have experience with the basic principles and riding lateral movements. 

This is the step towards the highest level. However, if you have a lower level at the moment you can still enroll as the videos will surely be inspiring to watch! 

Big chance it does. Rien’s method respects the way in which horses learn and it’s developed in a way that your horse’s body will become stronger over time. He has been training horses for over 45 years and he’s never encountered a horse on which his method didn’t work.

However, not all horses have the same level of talent, so sometimes it can take longer for one horse than for the other to improve his level. But Rien says that every horse can give you a good feeling and it doesn’t matter how much talent he has.

Rather, the training method will not suit every rider. If you especially want to ride your horse low, deep and round or with a draw rein and you are looking for a ‘quick trick’ to solve a problem, then this online training and training method is not for you.
