VIDEO: Introducing Liverpools with Lucinda Green

By USEA

In this video break from the USEA Vault, originally provided in partnership with Eventing Training Online, Lucinda Green instructs a group of riders on how to introduce their horses to jumping a liverpool. Starting out at the walk over a tarp that's been rolled up, Green increases the difficulty of the exercise by opening up the tarp and increasing from the walk to the trot to the canter. Green coaches riders through how to manage horses that are unsure about jumping over the tarp. Finally, Green adds a pole over the top of the tarp to simulate a jump with a liverpool beneath.

Lucinda Green is a British eventer who competed successfully at the highest levels of the sport in the 1970s and 1980 before going on to a highly successful career as an instructor. She won the Badminton Horse Trials a record six times on six different horses, and was the 1982 World Champion and European Champion 1975 and 1977. She also won World team gold (1982), three European team golds (1977, 1985, 1987), and an Olympic silver medal in 1984. She also won the Burghley Horse Trials in 1977 and 1981. She now travels world-wide teaching clinics to the next generation of riders.

Change of Rein: Rosie Smith's Journey from Reining to the #2022AEC

Rosie Smith’s rose gold accented helmet matched her perfectly tidy bun of red hair as she took the third spot in the USEA Training Rider Championship at the 2022 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) presented by Nurena Feeds. Every little detail came together while aboard her trusted partner of nine years: the 20-year-old Connemara Irish Draught named Seamus (by Corrcullen, RID). But Smith’s first jump, back when she was only 15 years old, wasn’t with an English saddle.
