Sun March 6th 9:00am-5:00pm Parent – Rider & Teacher Training Day If you want to know more…this is the day for you. This day has been recognised as an Official USDF University Program Event, but is still very easy to understand for parents who supervise their children and want to help, for riders who want to improve their seat & posture, and especially for coaches who want to specialise in biomechanics. Either enjoy the day by sitting and watching as demo riders show you how the rider affects the horse’s way of going. Or, you demo ride yourself. Learn how to sit in all 3 paces, up to and including starting shoulder in & half pass and basic jumping position. Learn why riders make horses fall in, cut corners & fall on the forehand. $150 for the entire day doesn’t stop there as a DVD of the entire event is included so you can share with your friends and review it again and again. Simple, easy to understand and ideal even for young riders.
Spectators FREE on Saturday! YAY
