About the Event

Limited to six horse/rider pairs.

- Each individual session includes an evaluation of the horse's posture/ movement and some supervised riding focused on rider relaxation and connection with their horse.

Auditors participate in all the mini-lectures and discussions. Occasionally, auditors may be invited to participate in some "hands-on" when discussing a particular aspect of the particular horse in that session.

- Discover why jaw releases and lateral flexions at the AO joint are beneficial and how they work.

- Learn about rider rotation.
