What does one of your training sessions involve?
“We start with the combination introducing themselves and explaining what goals they want to achieve together. Then when I’m teaching a combination for the first time, I like to watch them warm up. Then we start the training session and, at the end, we put together a short-term and a long-term plan to enable the rider to achieve their goals.
If you’re not based in Spain, Lotta also runs a lot of online training sessions via Ridesum, where a good internet connection is the most important thing that the rider needs to be aware of.
“Ridesum really is a fantastic tool to use for online training,” says Lotta.
Who inspires you and why?
-Charlotte Dujardin, her riding is magical. Kyra Kyrklund is incredibly knowledgeable and can convey her philosophy in a positive and informative way. And Ulla Håkansson, who I can’t help but be impressed by.
What do you think more riders and trainers should take on board?
“Humility towards the horse and the sport we take part in.”
