La disciplina del Reining: il Training del Giovane Reiner con Shawn Flarida e Kalley Krickeberg

Incontra il cavaliere plurivincitore di premi in denaro, Shawn Flarida e l’esperta preparatrice di giovani cavalli, Kalley Krickeberg, nel loro DVD formativo. Segui il percorso di Kalley a caccia di consigli da parte del cavaliere più vincente nella storia del NRHA: lo straordinario horseman Shawn Flarida, nel mettere le basi, per praticare la disciplina del reining, insieme alla puledra di due anni, con alle spalle 50 giorni di lavoro con la sella, Rita by Magnum Chic Dream. Partendo dalla prima valutazione dei giovani cavalli nel tondino, imparerai a scegliere un soggetto con grandi prospettive nel reining, addirittura prima di mettere piede nella staffa e vedrai ed imparerai come Shawn valuta le possibilità di Rita di “farcela” come cavallo da reining agonista di alto livello.

Impara gli esercizi base che Shawn utilizza per iniziare i suoi due anni e come sviluppare la flessibiltà dell’incollatura, del garrese e delle anche. Poi guarda come Shawn guida Kalley attraverso la rifinitura degli spin, dei circoli, dei cambi di galoppo a volo, degli stop, dei rollback e dei passi indietro con i cavalli dai tre anni, ai più maturi vincitori di medaglie d’oro come RC Fancy Step! Farai esperienza con le manovre di base, la risoluzione dei problemi e molto altro ancora. Vedrai, dal punto di vista di un trainer come Shawn istruisce Rita come se fosse nel proprio centro di addestramento e alla fine, premerai il bottone del rewind ancora ed ancora per beneficiare di tutti i preziosi consigli di Shawn su qualsiasi cosa, dalla progressione ideale delle imboccature per un cavallo da reining, alle teorie sull’allenamento, al cuore, all’atleticità e alla addestrbilità richiesti ai migliori atleti equini nel mondo.

Qualora tu sia già un fan dell’accattivante disciplina del reining e tu abbia già sperimentato la sua ebbrezza, stai certo che troverai interessante e di ispirazione il patrimonio di conoscenze messe a disposizione da un horseman ed atleta del campionato dei grandi, un Michael Jordan o uno Walter Payton del reining . Questo cofanetto da 4 DVD sarà disponibile in inglese con sottotitoli in Spagnolo, Italiano e Portoghese.
