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.
Over the previous decade, the number of upper level event horses that remain at the highest levels of the sport for extended periods of time has anecdotally been dwindling. Also, it is rare to see horses return to represent the U.S. on international teams. This discussion features statistics provided by the USEA and EquiRatings to strengthen our understanding of this issue and perspectives from coaches, trainers, riders, grooms, and veterinary professionals on the possible reasons and solutions.
For 60 years the members of the USEA have been coming together to discuss the business of the Association and make important decisions to keep the sport of eventing thriving in America. The USEA Annual Meeting & Convention has turned into four days full of meetings and more, but the Annual Meeting remains the backbone.
The focus of this presentation is mindfulness practice, how it ties into the core principles of mindset, fitness, nutrition, and community, and how these topics foster optimal performance in and out of the saddle. As equestrians, we invest a lot of time and energy making sure that our horses are in their best shape to compete and in doing so we often sweep our own needs to the side.
Each year at the USEA Convention, the Rule Change Open Forum looks to the future to discuss changes to the USEF Rules for Eventing for the upcoming competition season. Convention attendees have the opportunity to hear which changes are coming down the pipeline and have their questions answered.
