Demystifying Lateral Work Clinic
Clinic Information

Helmets are required. Gloves are strongly recommended.

Second Clinic Session - Saturday February 16th. Snow Date Sunday February 17th.

The focus of this clinic is improve the execution, precision and quality of your lateral work. Basic lateral work, suppling and gymnastic exercises will be included. More advanced movements and techniques will be added for the more advanced students and horses as their proficiency and confidence allows.

The clinics that follow in the coming weeks will have the same rudimentary start for beginners but at the same time move participants towards a greater understanding of more complex exercises and technique. The Clinic Series culminates with Part 3 on January 13th with a seminar and clinic on Teaching The Flying Change. These clinics build on the techniques discussed in the previous week's session, so it may be of value to attend all three.

To sign up for the next available clinic, please download the Waiver and Clinic Form , fill them out and send them to Ellie.

Some things worth mentioning -
We recommend riders audit the first 2 clinics (at least, riding would be more beneficial) if they are interested in working on their changes as there are many subtle training tools that go into building a clean single change and it is too much to cover in a single 45 minute session for most horses.

We are offering a $10 discount for each clinic session to any/all TB's (OTTB or just full xx blood) for this series. Anne has a solid foundation in transitioning the TB from racing horse to Grand Prix, so this an opportunity to help encourage better dressage scores for our equine friends that were bred for more speed than their warmblood buddies.

In case of inclement (seasonal) weather - we will push the clinics back 1 week. However, that being said - the Series must wrap by the end of the first weekend in March, so check back often for updates!

For those interested in using a WF horse for the clinics - we are happy to provide a trained FEI horse for you to learn on, however, they are not machines and can take great exception to a strange rider at times. It would be beneficial to your learning experience to rider them a few times prior to the clinic(s). Contact Anne to discuss which horse suits your riding style and schedule best.

Fees and General Clinic Information:

$75 per horse/rider TB's - $65 (save $10)

There is one lesson time available at 3PM. Please contact us if you are interested in participating.

Trailer parking will be managed in the driveway provided it is not muddy. If mud persists, please park on the west shoulder of Watermark Road and lead your horse in. If you need a stall, please just let us know.

We encourage some overlap of riders during their warm up/cool down time, so the lessons are set at 45 minute intervals but feel free to enter the ring 5-10 minutes ahead of your time slot and linger after you have finished.

We will have some hot refreshments - hot chocolate and coffee and soup as well as some extra blankets (coolers) to help keep our auditors from freezing to death. Bundle up and we look forward to seeing you all on Sunday!
