Cavaletti Clinic 

with Erika Jansson

 

Erika Jansson’s Cavaletti Clinic helps the rider create a sport horse that is highly responsive, maneuverable, can rapidly and smoothly collect or extend the gaits, stop, turn, and remain balanced. Erika’s 45 minutes of instruction deliver results that other training doesn’t accomplish in years. Best known for her ability to achieve fast results with no pressure for the horse or the rider, she supplies her students (two & four legged) with volumes of empathy and encouragement.

The motto of the clinic is “all breeds, all disciplines, all levels.”

Dubbed the “Cavaletti Lady,” Erika brings 30-plus years of exceptional knowledge and career accomplishments from her native Sweden, as well as Germany, New Zealand, and California

About Freestyles:

The dressage musical freestyle is one of the most exciting parts of dressage. 

Freestyles are an increasingly important part of competitive dressage and are offered through USDF for all levels training and up.  

Because of the skill required to ride to and stay with the music, a higher degree of proficiency is required in musical freestyles than for the highest test of the level. Riders who are proficient at the chosen level of competition can choose to show off their skills by entering a Musical Freestyle. The addition of music can be an inspiration to the rider and audience alike, not to mention that it gives us a creative outlet and another way to explore the sport we love.

 

Prior to the clinic, riders should familiarize themselves with the required movements at their chosen level. Riders should also bring 2 choices of music they like that is suitable to their horses tempo.

The below link provides all freestyle tests.
