Advanced Gymnastic Training of the Horse – Part Two
Once again, EquestrianCoach is proud to present Bertalan de Nemethy’s classical principles of teaching and training. Bert was a pioneer in the use of gymnastic exercises and believed them to be an essential tool in the sophisticated training of jumpers. The trainer, of course, must rely on common sense and observation when using gymnastics, with careful consideration paid to the horse’s training level and disposition. The incorporation of gymnastics into a horse’s training program will enhance elasticity, agility, strength and coordination. In this, the second part of his advanced gymnastic topics, variation in stride number between the elements of the exercises challenge the horse and rider as the jumps increase in size.
At Equestrian Coach our passion is education. We are here to help riders learn something new, tackle a problem or brush up on something they already know. Providing valuable resources to riders is what makes us tick. Essentially, we want all equestrians to have access to affordable, quality education from the best coaches in the sport, regardless of their background, their riding level, or their geographic location. So this blog is going to be all about education. We will be sharing tips, lessons, exercises, experiences and so much more, all to enhance the education of our blog followers.

What People Are Saying About EquestrianCoach.com
Thanks EQUESTIRANCOACH! I have watched almost all of your videos ... it has been great to keep my skills up when unable to ride! I especially appreciate the videos getting points across simply and with great demonstrations. Keep up the great work!
I love your site! It is loaded with excellent practical advice applicable to both beginner and novice riders. Myself and my horses thank you.
What I like best about EquestrianCoach.com is the easy access to coaches, clinics, lessons, blogs and training articles that can be found on the site. A tremendous plus to those of us training on a budget that would not normally allow us the ability to clinic with some of these great trainers.
I'm pleased to see that someone has finally done an instructional video on safely adjusting stirrups/girth when mounted. Seeing riders do it the wrong way has always been a pet peeve of mine.
