Jean Bemelmans has been the national coach for the Spanish Olympic Team, over the last 9 years. Himself a former international Grand Prix rider and a master known throughout the world. We ask Jean and his amateur client Christian to discuss the path that led them to the goals they are currently working on. This is very inspiring for serious riders working towards difficult, yet possible, goals within their own riding! Jean Bemelmans-GER, this is a super video to watch as Jean has his student on a lunge line, to work on scripted exercises to create balance and the independent seat. Specific interest is placed on keeping the body on the vertical, not carrying ones weight or frame forward or backward.
Jean Bemelmans-GER, a very good picture of what you are trying to obtain by warming up low and deep is displayed and is contrasted against what it is not supposed to look like. The difference could seem slight to the inexperienced eye, but performing this exercise properly is absolutely critical. Then they move onto collected work with a discussion on forward motion as being the key to getting real collection.
