Learn the basics with cavaletti exercises and start your jumping journey with cavaletti training. If the basics are not there, jumping a course becomes not only difficult but also dangerous. That is why Eva Deimel guides you step by step, safely, to showjumping. Riding over a cavaletti is a wonderful way to develop a sense of the right rhythm and to consolidate your jumping seat basis.

No jumping without dressage – one of the most important principles in showjumping. Eva Deimel shows you in this video with her student, Lea, which dressage work is essential. Keeping the horse straight and having him “in front of you” are some of the key points you will learn in this video.

How do I know how many strides my horse is going to need to get to the jump and how can I land on the right leg, so I won’t have to do a change of lead after the jump? In this video, Eva Deimel will show you many exercises and tips that you can practice and apply with your own horse using cavaletti.


You will learn in this video:

  • How to prepare for showjumping using cavaletti exercises
  • How to get a feeling for the distances and keep your horse on the right line
  • What can help you close your horse & land on the correct canter lead
