On this week’s episode of the USEA Podcast, we hear from Olympian Mary King on how best to care for your equine athlete during the winter months, whether he is taking a complete break or remaining in light work. She provides advice for different ways you can keep your horse “ticking over” without doing too much work in the ring.

“Schooling shows are about learning, not about being intimidated,” says Miranda Kettlewell, VP of Dressage for Commonwealth Dressage and Combined Training Association (CDCTA).
For horses and riders, schooling shows are a great way to practice without the added stress and expense of a recognized or sanctioned competition. Venues and clubs can offer schooling shows as a way to open the door to their communities, increase their revenue or membership, and partner with local businesses.

Luke 140 sustained a minor injury during his training preparation and has been withdrawn from consideration for the team but is expected to make a full recovery.
