Please us for a great opportunity to learn from Karen O'Connor on December 16-18, 2019. Karen has an incredible depth of knowledge and a passion for horses.
The USEA Instructors' Certification Program has developed a workshop on understanding the fundamentals for dressage that is educational for anyone interested in riding. The reading, demonstrations, theory, and practical execution is well-organized and will help anyone in their riding, teaching, and basic understanding of the sport and horses.
We will need some demo riders (interesting, but not a lesson) to help as well. ANYONE who rides dressage or jumping would learn a ton from this workshop. Please contact Stephanie Goodman at (208) 315-2086 for more information about being a demo rider.
After the workshop, Karen is going to give a day of lessons for the select few who jump on this opportunity quickly! Click here to sign up for lessons with Karen.
We appreciate your support in bringing top education to the Pacific Northwest and hope to keep our community growing! All information can be found on our website at http://wasatchsporthorses.com.
Any riding exercise is about the art of the possible. This is especially true with jumping exercises, when a step too far will compromise safety. Exercises and a method should be developed progressively that build confidence and competence for both horse and rider, and in particular also allows room for error.
In the show jumping phase, where a ribbon can be won or lost based on a fraction of a second, it is important to understand the rules that determine how time is kept. After reviewing the rules concerning time and other show jumping penalties, one should also examine the rules that outline the faults incurred for each of the different types of penalties.
Sue Ockendon, organizer of the MARS Bromont CCI Three-Day Event and the FEI Eventing Nations Cup announced today that the event has decided to consider dates further along the calendar. The COVID-19 pandemic has made it difficult for Bromont to confirm that it would be possible for competitors to travel on August 15-18.
There were 14 USEA recognized events that took place in June, the first month back from the suspension of the eventing calendar due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While no one finished with a score in the teens, Erin Walker and Zydeco Nights came very close. By finishing on a score of 20.0, Walker and Zydeco Nights won the Novice Rider division at the Chattahoochee Hills H.T. on Sunday, June 28.
