The conference will take place in the historic military place “Lanceri di Montebello”, the same place in which Federico Caprilli worked.

   The two conference days will be held in the officer’s club Caserma: via Flaminia 826 00191 roma .

   The practical day will be held at the barn Ippodromo: viale di tor di quinto 114 00191 roma

The conference is held remembering the 150 from the birth of Caprilli who patent the concept of lightening the seat and “giving” the reins to the horse while jumping which revolutionised equitation. Caprilli was the first to realise the horse needed freedom to deal with the obstacle and maintain its natural balance. Caprilli is therefore known for having revolutionized the jumping seat and introduced the concept of “natural equitation” which today is recognized as ‘the revolution in modern equitation’.

We look forward to seeing you in Rome!
