EQUITANA Asia Pacific 2008
EQUITANA ALL STAR CLINIC
What do they have in common and where do they differ. The All Star Clinic is a unique gathering of experts in Dressage, Showjumping, Reining, Campdraft/Cutting and Polo
Each discipline involves particular ways of doing things in order to achieve its specific goals from the ascetic of dressage to the practical skills of chasing a ball, a beast or leaving the rails up. In this clinic veteran presenter, Richard Weis, will use the best horse and rider available in each discipline in order to uncover essential elements from selecting horse and gear (it is all purpose bred horses and purpose made gear these days), as well as discipline specific training and riding techniques.
Lately, there is a lot of cross fertilisation one discipline to another. More and more show jumpers are using dressage training to the point that skilled riders make jumping look like dressage with lumps. Dressage trainers are more often using western breakers to start their young horses because they appreciate how safe and responsive their horses start out.
This clinic aims to illuminate a multi disciplinary understanding of the points of similarity and the points of difference. You can expect to come away knowing the difference between a spin and a pirouette and a roll back, why quarter horses don’t do dressage and warm bloods are not good cutting horses or polo ponies.
You’ll also learn about different riding styles and training techniques. You never know, if our luminary participants are brave enough, we just might do some horse swapping.
