Learning to lunge athletically

Do you want to learn classical horse lunging?

We pursue the athletic training and development of a riding or vaulting horse. We teach you to lunge horses in a progressive way, because your own skills are developed first, and then those of the horse. We can draw on a wealth of experience in lunging and always remain within the framework of the classical training of a horse. Depending on the requirements, the training is arranged individually, because only in this way is really good development possible. This also means that we work in a very dynamic and space-oriented way and thus also incorporate very modern approaches.
