Philosophy

The training by Odysseia Stables is based on the philosophy of the famous Greek General ‘Xenophon’, who lived 400 years before Christ. Xenophon gave us the foundations for the equitation that growed into nowedays Classical riding. His philosophy of intuition, insight into the world of the horse and kind treatment. Or better explained by his own words:
‘Anything forced and misunderstood can never be beautiful.’

The horse will show its natural movement with pleasure both by working both in hand as wel as under the saddle.
With feeling, patience and respect we train the physical develope of the horse so he is better able to carry the rider in balance. Staying healthy during his working carreer and giving the rider the feeling of becoming one with your horse.

‘If a dancer was forced to dance by whip and spikes,
he would be no more beautiful than a horse trained under similar conditions.’
