Carl Hester riding valegro demo ride.

I may not agree with Carl Hester being a promoter of LDR/Rollkur...

But DARNIT! I WANT HIS SEAT! He hardly even moves. And that was a beautiful demo ride.

If this was already posted before...sorry.

Can we talk about that horses walk for a moment... I mean... really!!?? How does a horse have the most amazing, athletic, elastic walk?! Shows you how much dressage I watch. But my god... I didn't know a walk could look so majestic!

I love how Carl is sounding puffed out - almost as if riding is hard!

I'm sorry I am going to have to disagree with you.


Promoter might not have been a good word, but he DOES believe that a horse needs to be put in a LDR/Rolkur (same thing to me) frame at some points in training them. Which I disagree with.

But yes, Carl Hester is a firm supporter of LDR/Rolkur.

Can you point me to where he supports LDR/ Rolkur? So then does Charlotte support it as well?

RPB... he's always maintained that he does NOT advocate rolkur.
And no, LDR is NOT the same thing if ridden correctly - not just rolkur with a different name.

In a 'true' LDR, the horse is ridden with a deeper neck and softly asked to come a little behind the vertical, to assist in picking up the back and stretching the neck from the wither. There is no backwards force on the horse's jaw, and generally ridden with very light contact. This can be very useful for a horse that tends to brace through the neck, or one that is highly reactive. I will put my horse in LDR with no hesitation when I feel that he's going to blow up - he's extremely reactive and spooky, and to bring him a little deep is the 'safe' position for both of us until he settles.

If Carl's horses were rolkured, that would not be so beautifully up to the bridle. There is no pulling action on them at all. Compare how Carl/Charlotte's horses work compared to Adelinda's 'Parzival', or Partrik's 'Scandic', who are publically trained in rolkur.

I suspect Carl would be quite offended to think he was being accused of employing and advocating rolkur.

Oh wow... just in the walk intially around the arena - watch the butt. I swear that horse should be a teenage girl with that wiggle! :) Awesome to watch.

I didn't see any Rolkur happening, but then, what do I know...
