Charlotte Wittbom is a rider, trainer and teacher specialising in classical approaches to horsemanship.

Starting her riding career in the eventing world in her native Sweden, her wish to find different ways to work with horses led her to Portugal’s classical dressage tradition. After 10 years as a student of Master Luis Valença; working at Morgado Lusitano as a rider and instructor and then running her own training and riding holiday yard at former Master Nuno Oliviera’s yard, she then moved to England and her base is now in Cheshire.

In this demo, Charlotte will show how classical training principles rehabilitated her horse Kalegro. She took him on at 14 years of age with existing medical problems, and therefore his muscle tone  had to start being built up through ground work. He is now working confidently in all his lateral work, and has just been starting a more advanced level including flying changes, pirouettes and piaffe.

Charlotte’s wish is to show that there are different ways to work with your horse regardless of you, or your horse’s ability, confirmation or medical difficulties.
