When Gerd Römbke, the developer of the LaBona riding cushions, was finally allowed to take riding lessons at the age of 13, he gave up after 12 lessons. This was not how he had imagined riding. Years of riding out in the countryside followed, followed by training in a professional tournament stable with a focus on jumping. Today Gerd is convinced of freedom dressage. Or, in more accurately words, the communication with the free horse. From the beginning Gerd works without a rope, which is the basis of his training. Gerd thus develops the first dressage lessons and then creates a transition to training in hand, on the long rein and under the rider. In late autumn 2011, Gerd hung up his snaffle and only rides his own horses with neck rings. In 2016, he developed his first own LaBona riding pad. What makes LaBona riding pads so special? LaBona riding pads are not only meant to look nice, keep the breeches clean and protect the horse's back from the rider's ischial tuberosities. Other pads do that too. The special thing about LaBona riding pads is that they also promote a correct seat so that the rider can find a good balance and swing along loosely. To achieve this, the sides of all LaBona pads are kept extremely thin and the seats are slightly raised. In addition, with the exception of the Purista, all models have padding that can be adjusted if necessary. LaBona riding pads form a cushion channel to relieve the horse's spinous processes. Our partner Alizée Froment rides with the LaBona DRESSAGE II.
