The other day we welcomed a group of professional photographers to Quinta do Brejo, who observed how we train our horses. We recorded this video which we thought you might like to see. Afterwards there was a dinner with Fado (traditional Portuguese music)… a lovely evening.
The video shows Charlotte riding and schooling our Lusitano, Vip, in a way that is very typical for their work together. Each schooling session is different, working with what Charlotte feels the horse needs at that time – they can be short or longer in duration, work on particular movements or simply on the horse’s gymnastic deveopment. Particular problems may also present themselves during the session, such as stiffness, which Charlotte can then work to improve.
