"Andrea Bethge: trainer who rides horses healthy
Many show horses are traumatized by rough riding methods. But professional rider Andrea Bethge proves that successful horse training is also possible without pressure, considerately and sensitively.
Brutal riding methods in dressage have caused scandals and a lot of discussion in recent years. Behind this is often the quest for success on tournaments or ignorance. 30 years ago, professional rider Andrea Bethge also did what her trainer said. But when she realized what she was doing to the horses, she completely changed her mind and developed her own philosophy "playful.piaffe". The welfare of the animals is uncompromisingly in the first place.
The goal: cheerfully motivated horses
In her training stable in Lower Saxony, she regularly trains horses that are physically and mentally exhausted due to incorrect training. She takes the time to get to know each animal and to adapt her training individually. Andrea Bethge's goal is the "happily motivated" horse, who likes to do something with his rider. Playful lessons and fun instead of submission and pressure. Riding as a real teamplay between man and horse."
