Manolo’s Background and Philosophy
An EFA (FEI) Level 3 Dressage Coach, Manolo is a seasoned horseman with over forty years of experience spanning classical dressage and every riding discipline from puissance jumping to polo and doma vaquero. Manolo is dedicated to a soft, sympathetic and thorough training method which prepares horses physically and psychologically for each stage of training from training level to Grand Prix and Haute Ecole. In particular, Manolo is well known for training or re-training the 3 Ps: Piaffe, Passage and Pirouette, without coercion or force.
Over the years, Manolo has become sought after by riders and equine wellness practitioners including veterinarians and osteopaths for his holistic approach to training, developing and rehabilitating horses, which incorporates his unique brand of body work, in-hand and riding. This versatile three-pronged approach gives Manolo the ability to straighten and release tight, stiff, crooked horses, introduce new movements, develop and enhance gait quality and help horses work through physical or mental blockages without stress. Manolo’s dedication to the good of the horse and his proven ability in developing healthy, focused, performing horses using traditional methods have made him a highly sought-after clinician around the world.
The Clinics run over 3 days commencing at approximately 8.30am and finish around 5-6pm each day (sometimes Manolo's clinics run later).
The format for Manolo's clinics is individual 45-60 minute lessons of up to 8 horses per day. There are a combination of in-hand and ridden lessons. Clinic participants receive between 1 - 3 lessons each over the three days.
The Clinic fee is finalised closer to the clinic dates. It's generally $750-850 for 3 lessons and $250-270 for individual lessons.
