Trish Hyatt Working Equitation Clinic  - September 24, 2017

at Metchosin Riding Ring  or

  • Working Equitation is a fun way of developing horses and riders of all levels and disciplines. People like it because it's not boring and horses like it too as they can understand why they need to use their body the way you've been asking.
  • The intro level is Walk/Trot. The highest levels are all Canter with the exception of specific obstacles that must be walked but the levels in between advance progressively through trotting of some obstacles with canter in between, beginning with lead changes through trot, then walk and eventually flying changes.The levels are designed to allow your horse to progress through the gaits as his fitness and experience dictateThe Metchosin Equestrian Society is hosting a Working Equitation Clinic with Trish Hyatt.  We invite you to participate in this new equestrian sport at our local riding ring. 
  • Working Equitation is a fun sport that is just coming to the US and Canada.  It originated in Europe and is based on the skills needed by the working horse's of Portugal, Spain, Italy and France.  Skills that encompass the desired traits of forward, calm, light and supple.
