Richard Malmgren

Equestrian Long Line Trainer

A native from Sweden, Richard now resides in South Carolina with his wife, Grand Prix dressage rider and trainer, Jessica Jo Tate. Richard has many accolades to his name, having worked under Scott Hassler. Richard said the goals of long lining are simple and in this order – Straightness, thoroughness/connection, and stretch. “Long lining is about the basics – not the tricks. When I work the upper level horses, sometimes the owners think we are going to be doing piaffe but I don’t want them to piaffe because that is their evasion and they are not relaxed when they are doing it. You can only build muscles once the horse is relaxed. The recycle of energy happens when you have them relaxed, supple and through.”
