Advanced Movements - Pirouettes / Passage / Piaffe
The fifth volume is the culmination of the "start, stop, turn" formula found in the earlier programmes of the series "Training with Kyra Kyrklund".
The three peaks of collection - pirouette - piaffe - are clearly shown to be the fruits of a logical and natural training programme whose roots are to be found in the simple signal system.
Kyra demonstrates how maximum energy without tension can be achieved in these extremely demanding gymnastic exercises.
Stunning shots of Kyra gliding with supreme lightness in and out of piaffe and passage on her black Russian stallion Edinburg will make your spine tingle!
Kyra Kyrklund is one of the most complete horsewomen of our time. Before concentrating on dressage, she was competing in both eventing and showjumping in her native Finland. Kyra has to date competed at five Olympic Games. Partnered by her unforgetable black stallion, Matador, she won a Silver medal at the 1990 World Equestrian Games in Stockhom and won the Volvo World Cup in Paris in 1991.
After seven years as chief dressage trainer at the Swedish National Stud at Flyinge Kyra is now based in England from where she travels to do clinics and seminars all over the world.
"Balance - the what, why and how" is the key to Kyra's logical training system. Her video series and her book "Dressage with Kyra" gives you the opportunity to appreciate and benefit from the clear and consistent training techniques. Each programme gives comprehensive guidelines to the "building blocks" of her effective "start, stop, turn" formula from the basic stages through to the most advanced levels of dressage training.
This system and philosophy has not only enabled Kyra to produce 14 international Grand Prix horses but also to train many riders in Olympic dressage, showjumping and eventing. She believes that the influence of correct basic level training gives the horse the confidence to perform consistently and successfully in any sphere."
