Lightness clinics are about working with your horse from the ground and under saddle and teaching your horse to travel in a posture that is conducive with dressage and comfortable riding whilst also developing a horse for long term soundness.
We will be doing some work on the rider’s seat including exercises on the Balimo Chair (a chair designed for riders to improve their balance, suppleness and co-ordination). This has been a great asset to every rider who has worked with it so far.
We will work with groundwork, in hand work, flexions and of course riding!!! Teaching the horse to travel in self carriage is our main goal and understanding their asymmetry and balance is the answer.
The pedestal will be set up for the horses to develop the feeling of lifting the wither, and this is always great fun for both horse and rider.
We will talk about the equine bio-mechanics and the importance of understanding how the muscles and skeleton needs to work to achieve BALANCE and SYMMETRY in your horse.
The cost for the weekend is $220 which includes 2 semi private lessons on day 1 and a private lesson on day 2 to consolidate all the learnings of day 1.
Accommodation is available for horse and rider. The clinic dates for 2020 are:
