The full-service training has two components:
- A tailored program for the horse and rider, and
- A team which communicates with the owner and service providers to optimize the health of the horse.
The Classical Training Methods are those taught by the old Masters and perfected by some modern-day riders. These Methods are based on the Training Scale: Relaxation, Rhythm, Contact, Impulsion, Straightness, Collection. (Losgelassenheit, Takt, Anlehnung, Schwung, Geraderichtung, Versammlung).
Every ride should start at the bottom of the scale, and master each step consecutively. For instance, never try for Impulsion when you do not have Contact. This Training Scale is the foundation of the Classical System and of Dr. Parra’s training philosophy.
