Learn to fly, feel your horses’ power and just let yourself go. Surrender to the animal’s rhythmic movements and compose your own symphony (Kur); all this is possible and seen in the FEI’s regulations, the principal aim of which is the harmonious development of the horse’s natural skills and abilities, wrote, Reiner Klimke in his book Klimke on Dressage…

For us Latins, the exclusion of several natural airs to achieve the full beauty and integrity of the show represents a great disadvantage. I am obviously referring to “Airs Above the Ground” (levades, ballotades and caprioles). The reason for not including these is, according to Klimke, because they have not been promoted in many countries and in our specific case, because that type of Nordic horse would have much difficulty in performing them.
