Sporthorse & Problems

Each rider /owner will recognize it, the feeling that something is not right, but not knowing what it is.

The problem is not visible yet, but your sport horse is not in optimum condition and is not moving as it should be. Your horse is - as we call it at BG - in the grey area. This is accompanied by reduced performance. It is clear that the horse has troubles with what is currently required, which can ultimately lead to injuries. Perhaps the bar is set too high, or your horse lacks natural ability. Often there is a physical limitation that can be treated. Once the horse can use its body optimally and with confidence again, these problems are solved.



If you are active in sports, it is important that you can rely on your horse being able to handle the requested performance adequately. Through our method of regular check-ups and treatments one can quickly notice if your sport horse is in the before-mentioned grey area. Treatment and control is focused on optimally maintaining factors such as flexibility, strength, condition and coordination. As a consequence, injuries and loss of performance will be prevented.  Our guidance is therefore worthwhile for both professionals as well as amateurs.

From the basic up to the TOP level



Training means setting the bar higher little by little. We want to make progress, not stand still or go backwards. For this reason BG offers appropriate guidance to both rider and horse. We provide feedback on how your horse responds to the training program and we use this feedback to fine tune the training scheme.



• Easily raising the bar with the proper guidance

• Preventing injuries and overload through regular check-ups and quickly resolving incipient problems.

• A better understanding of and cooperation with the sportshorse.

• our findings will give you a view of the horse´s capacities as well as the most appropriate training program.

young horses to be checked before they get broken.



Many problems arise during the rearing period. A kick, a fight or slipping out can easily lead to problems. In particular the not clearly visible damage to the young horse is treacherous.

We start to train the horse and run into sensitivity, resistance or movement restrictions.



• it prevents the young horse from overloading and the development of injuries.

• problems are often still minor and relatively quick to fix

• the young horse will be more cooperative and easier to work with





Our treatments work performance-enhancing and reduce the risk of injuries. Flexibility, coordination and strength will improve. The horse’s range of motion will increase noticeably, as well as being more powerful and smoother. Its attitude will get better. It’s a challenge to BG to guide combinations and stables and together making a difference in competitions.
