MES Events

June 17, 2017 - Trish Hyatt Working Equitation Clinic

2 auditors and 7 riders participated.

  • 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 dictate."

Next Working Equitation Clinic - September 24, 2017 at the Metchosin Ring.  If interested please email Daphne Carter at bentacres@shaw.ca.
