Cavaletti Training Clinic with Annelie Anderson-Beck
What you will learn: Learn how to use cavaletti effectively and safely. Learn how to introduce cavaletti training to a horse or rider. See a demonstration of some more advanced exercises and discuss how they can be used to enhance the training of a higher schooled horse.
What Will the Horse Learn? A training level horse moves about 80 percent outward (forward) and 20 percent upward (into collection). As the horse moves up the levels, he will shift his effort from out to up. Cavaletti work helps them to understand how to do this. When cavaletti are done correctly, the horse also learns to stretch down and use the long back muscles in the healthiest possible way. They learn to push evenly with both hind legs and not just the dominant one. They increase their range of motion in all of their joints, both front AND back legs. They develop more consistent muscling over their entire body and a greater confidence in their self-carriage. They develop a more consistent tempo in all three gaits. They also become more correct in the biomechanics of each gait.

Who is Annelie Anderson-Beck? Annelie was born and grew up in Sweden, where she got her classical riding foundation. Annelie had the opportunity to ride and learn from young horses to upper level show jumpers and dressage horses.
She trained with Anette Johansson (show jumping) and Einar Kristoffersen (dressage) in Sweden. In the US, Annelie has trained with Walter Zettl (dressage), JJ Tate (dressage), Lucinda Green (eventing), Sally Cousins (jumping). Annelie is currently training with Thierry Durand from France.
Annelie brings a combination of classical knowledge with a very down to earth style. She meets riders and horses right where they are. Her philosophy comes from a genuine concern to help both the horse and the rider progress to the next level and reach their goals. She believes that it is important to learn the "how"and the "why" behind every movement. Her philosophy can be seen and felt in her lessons as she helps the horse through helping the rider.
Proceeds from the clinic will be donated to the Non Profit organization of Equine Assisted Therapy of NJ.
