Release - Dressage For Jumping With Richard Davison, John and
for Jumping is an innovative training video in which international
dressage rider and double Olympian, Richard Davison, is joined
by show jumping legend John Whitaker and his son Robert. The
result is 90 minutes of fascinating and comprehensive instruction
on the flat and over jumps as Richard's dressage expertise
is moulded with the Whitakers' jumping prowess.
During the programme, Richard takes viewers through the training
session, covering suppleness, yielding to the leg and half
halt. He is joined by John Whitaker to assess the young jumping
horse and together they tackle some common problems. With
John and Robert Whitaker, Richard looks at seeing a stride
including arriving correctly at take-off, shortening and lengthening
on the flat and between jumps before moving on to look at
jumping a course. Finally there are advanced exercises on
the flat to perfect the turn and jumping against the clock.
The application of dressage principles is evident throughout
the film with counter canter, shoulder in and canter pirouettes
proving their worth in the show jumping arena. The programme
provides a comprehensive reference for jumping and dressage
