Compassionate Training for Today’s Sport Horse

Biomechanics in 4 Dimensions

The Key to improving Posture, Balance and Strength

4DimensionDressage is developed by Karin Leibbrandt DVM, it is a new approach to training that is fully consistent with equine anatomy, physiology and biomechanics. It is for every horse, but places special emphasis on what modern sports horses need in order to stay healthy and free of injury.

It is a horse-friendly approach to training: the horse remains sound and builds on his strength by being trained according to the method’s principles. The horse’s durability is extended and the risk of injuries sharply reduced. He enjoys his training sessions, his physical and mental confidence grows as he is encouraged to develop in a positive way.

By teaching the horse to balance his body perfectly, he is helped to maintain optimum movement with the least possible amount of physical exertion. He does not waste energy compensating for faulty balance, moves harmoniously and effortlessly achieves the best possible results in training and competition.

How to teach your horse to get the correct length in the neck and balance himself in the 4 dimensions; vertically, horizontally, laterally and diagonally, you can read in my book “Compassionate Training for Today’s Sport Horse; Biomechanics in Four Dimensions, The Key to improving Posture, Balance and Strength”.

 

You can order the book  “Compassionate Training for Today’s Sport Horse; Biomechanics in Four Dimensions, The Key to improving Posture, Balance and Strength” online in the shop. The book is in English.

 

It is not “a” method but “the” method to make your horse perform in a horse friendly and correct manner. The book is great, correct and in clear language, good examples of what goes wrong, and how to correct to give the horse its own balance. Indispensable in your bookcase from recreation to dressage at a high level” – Cynthia

“I have already read a piece of your book! I think it is so great, how you write all this so clearly. Now I can really explain it to my students, with scientific support! I am not a reader, but I think it is really pleasantly written.” – Laura
