I HAD SUCH an honor to ride with the 4 times Olympic and Spanish Team Trainer Rafael Soto on his clinic visit here in UK last week. I’m very humbled by his training, and it makes me so extremely happy when high profile trainers like Rafael use such easy and soft methods like he does (try to force my gigant baby giraffe Caruso to do something and you’ll end up on the ground, my word, he’s simply WAY too big to try to force into anything.) It should just feel spot on.
Caruso was dancing better then before and I really wish every rider to look for a trainer that makes you feel ‘this is exactly how it’s supposed to be done’.
If you’re lucky enough to afford a weeks riding with Rafael in Jeres, Spain, please visit his dressage retreats HERE.
