Students come on their own horse for private lessons. They are encouraged to stay and watch other students for maximum benefit. Riders in clinics work on their seat. They develop the refined skills necessary to direct the horse in all elements of co-ordination necessary to dressage. Rhythm, bend, iumpulsion, collection etc. The emphasis is on communicating through correct technique.
The aim in clinics is to produce high quality, accurate, energetic dressage in the most harmonious way possible. Rider and horse move as one body, one beautiful picture.
Clinics are for any keen rider over 15yrs of age. Often they are organised by instructors to bring a fresh perspective on the subject to their students. Richard is often consulted by students and instructors when difficulties arise in coordination of horse and/or rider.
Clinics normally consist of 12 /40 minute lessons or 10 / 45 minutes lessons
Clinics are conducted in many locations in Australia, New Zealand, and Europe. See Localities for a list of locations.
