Well maybe it's time for a presentation, it must have been years since the last one, and alot of you newer followers probably have no idea of who I am, you just see the videos and pictures.
Well my name is Cornelia Rylen, I am 24years old this year, I live in sweden on my parents farm and I currently have 11 horses at home. I work with horses for a living, I train mainly my own horses but also have others in training and as sales horses. I jumped 130-135cm classes when I rode ponys, and I started my first 150cm class when I was 17-18. Since then I have taken a few horses up to those heights, and I have started 155cm on two different horses, one that I educated all by my self since she was 3 years old.
I also train riders and horses at home, I hold lessons almost daily. And I sell food for horses from St Hippolyt.
I love everything about the training of horses, I love sitting on a horse and feel what needs to be done to make something better. I love riding a horse and find the one thing that could make that horse great. I love the movement of a horse, the way it affects the horse and the way you need to work with that specific horse to make the most out of it.
I focus much of the training on the canter, you can do so much with a horse that is able to use it's canter. I mostlt work very slow, when outside in the woods I let the horses run, but when in training it's all about control and details.
I am very sure that a relaxed horse is the key, therefore I don't always really care if the horses head is behind the vertical, if they float out in a turn or if the hindlegs isn't activated as they should, if the horse is tense, I need to start my work there. I can't demand perfection on a tense horse.
I see myself as a soft, clear and kind rider. Kind in the way that I make sure that the horse understands me and what I want it to do and thereby avoid missunderstandings.
Well, that's some info. If you have any questions you can comment them under here! #DonnaBellahäst
