14th International Conference Equitation Science

Conference details
Friday 21 September 2018 - Monday 24 September 2018
Event type: 
Rome, Italy

The conference is held remembering the 150 years from the birth of Caprilli who patented the concept of lightening the seat and “giving” the reins to the horse while jumping which revolutionised equitation. Caprilli was the first to realise the horse needed freedom to deal with the obstacle and maintain its natural balance. Caprilli is therefore known for having revolutionized the jumping seat and introduced the concept of “natural equitation” which today is recognized as ‘the revolution in modern equitation’.
