During the workshop, this American specialist will discuss multiple aspects of recognizing and solving physical issues in horses.
This workshop is aimed at veterinarians and equine bodyworkers, but trainers can also benefit enormously.

DRESSAGE COMPETITION

Sunday 22nd October: The "Fine Contact Competition". A dressage competition in which the rider chooses in what order and at which exact moment the required figures and exercises of the test are shown, depending on when the horse is ready for it, constrained only by a time limit.
Marks will be given for all figures and exercises of the tests, but the most important part is the contact. Does the horse have a correct posture with length in the neck, does it lift the withers and bring the nose in front of the vertical? Does the horse move with balance and confidence? Is there harmony between horse and rider?
Bitless or even bridleless and bareback riding is allowed. A judge will evaluate the participants and give tips and feedback after the test. The audience may ask questions as long as they are respectful towards participants.
The winner receives this beautiful challenge cup as a prize.
The cost for participating in this dressage competition is only € 25,00 (registration via this link only)
Auditors for this day pay € 10,00 at the door.

EXTRA ON SUNDAY 22ND OCTOBER

Lecture by Joanna Robson DVM about early recognition of physical issues in horses. Serious problems can often be prevented this way. Following the lecture Joanna will evaluate and treat several horses and advise their owners. You can book your horse in for this before or during the clinic, if slots are still available
No extra fee is charged for the lecture, but there will be extra costs involved if you want your horse to be evaluated and treated. Limited availability, so reserving a space (via info@equicare-plus.com) is recommended.
