We are very pleased with the welcome and criticism that we have received for our demonstration The Clinic A-Z, modern riding art and our Gala Show. Both sold out 24 hours before, everything went great and we managed to present our goal. We will write about the Gala Show soon, still waiting for pictures.
In our opinion, this is something we need to do more of, meet in order to enjoy our wonderful breed, The Icelandic Horse. Put focus on and appreciate more than action and speed. The Icelandic horse has so much, much more than five gaits. Everything from beeing a tough Viking, who comes calmly walking the day after a crazy storm like nothing has happened. His powerfull wide gates with high movements, making him a great competition and show horse. His ability to move smoothly and comfortably taking care of a child or a beginner. Beeing able to be a great riding and free time horse and.... he can also dance like a ballerina in all kinds of exercises. We feel the need to increase the training and the glory of the slow gates and that itself will participate in lifting our horse to a higher level.
With this demonstration, we wanted to share with you what we have been working on and dedicated to riding for the past 15 years. Júlio Borba our teacher has been on horseback since he remembers and his father and uncle along with Louis Valenca were his mentors and Masters. Júlio Borba was a rider of the Royal Portuguese riding school for 12 years and showed all the exercises of the school riding the famous Portuguese Lusitanó breed. After leaving the Portugese riding school, he has worked continuously as a riding teacer worldwide and is believed to have had a major impact on the training of the Icelandic horse.
We wanted to show how much training matters, enjoy the little progress, and try to convey that the horse's happiness consists in, among other things, understanding and being able to do his work, the more he understands the more confident and happy he becomes. We want to try to increase the understanding of how muck our horse can improve by training and always using the same language, many small things make one big difference. Making people enjoy even more their own riding horse.
The goal was that it would be a great day for everyone, the audience, the staff, the riders, and everyone who took part in this show. Great emphasis was placed on heating inside the interconnected exhibition area, which is a real base in modern indoor riding.
Plenty to drink and eat for EVERYONE and a place to rest and chat when opportunities came. Thanks to all the great people who sponsored this show with financial donations and work, without you, this would not have come true. It was a great collaboration, with an incredible number of people working hard, almost day and night to put things in the way we wanted them to be.
We feel grateful to get to know and work with such wonderful and dedicated people. Everything from riding the show to cleaning and performing all other work. Thanks to all of you, there were geniuses in every job.
These writings accompany photos from the demonstration, we are still waiting for the pictures from the Gala Show to be ready for publication .
