In the third part of the webinar series “Natural asymmetry and training for straightness” we will talk about the assessment of asymmetry in motion and discuss useful criteria for analysis.

  • Which problems and challenges in movement are the result of crookedness?
  • Why does my horse not like to move on one hand?
  • Why does my circle keep getting too big or too small?
  • Why is the horse not giving to one rein?
  • Why does he start the wrong canter to one side or try to avoid the canter on this side at all?

For this seminar you can send in short videos of your horses for evaluation.

This is how it works:

– A video from the front (you film in the groundwork position) with enough distance to the horse so that you can see it completely. Please film to the right as well as to the left and make one video out of it. Please only 1-2 minutes in total.

– One video lunging. If possible walk, trot and canter. If not then what you can. Right and left hand. Please make one video, maximum 3-4 minutes. Please place your cell phone at the side of the arena, not in the middle of the lunging circle.

– Upload the two videos to Youtube (visibility: unlisted) and send me the links to by March 28th at the latest!

I should be able to see the whole horse. Please without bridle and saddle, or blanket. The horse should be allowed to assume its natural head position. No auxiliary reins! Lungeing with halter or cavesson.


About the webinar series:

Understanding the natural asymmetry of the horse is essential to educating our horse correctly, so as to keep it sound and balanced until old age. Crookedness affects aids and training progress, as well as correct performance of exercises. Natural asymmetry can cause many problems such as muscle tensions, tendon problems, problems with rhythm, lameness, development of compensation muscles, and joint diseases.

Do you enjoy riding your horse to one side, but to the other, everything feels wrong? Do exercises work on one hand but are difficult to the other? Do you wish to help your horse to more straightness with your seat? Would you like to know how to balance your horse with side movements? Do you wonder if you should ride your horse forward down or not? Then join this webinar series and use this year to dive deeply into the horse’s crookedness and understanding true straightness. 


Duration of the web-seminar: about 90 minutes. The seminar is recorded and you can access the recording for 90 days. It is possible to ask questions during the seminar.
