VIDEO: 2013 Ocala Symposium: Show Jumping with Yogi Breisner - Part I: Training Level

By USEA

On February 18 and 19, the USEA's Instructors' Certification Program hosted its annual series of educational clinics at Long Wood Farm in Ocala, Florida. Yogi Breisner, Linda Zang, and David O'Connor coached demo riders in show jumping, dressage, and cross-country, respectively. In this video, Yogi focuses on coaching at the Training level and discusses the importance of a strong foundation in developing riders and young horses. He explains his methods in both coaching and analyzing riding technique as demo riders Becka Hoos, Angel Martin, Grace Reilly, Katie O'Sullivan, and Emily Coulter rode through a show jumping exercise designed to encourage straightness and a forward ride to a fence. Run time: 26:29. This is the first video in a series that will cover all clinics at the 2013 Ocala Symposium. Keep up with previous posts at www.useventing.com and www.useventing.tv!

Pressure Proof Tip: Power Vowels

If you’re like most riders you’ve probably heard someone say something like, “Your last mistake is your best teacher,” or “if you’re doing everything right you’re doing something wrong because you’re in your comfort zone.” While I agree whole-heartedly with these sentiments, I actually prefer, “Equestrians don’t make mistakes. Mistakes make equestrians.” They make us bolder, braver, and brighter; but only when we develop a positive relationship with our mistakes and respond to them in productive ways.
