Debbie McDonald - Clinic for Riders and Spectators - Sept 2009

Don't Miss Debbie's
Clinics for Riders and Spectators
Story and Pictures Berni Saunders

With the horse's birthday just past ... and the start of a new competition season,  most dressage enthusiasts are all fired up and looking forward to the springtime competitions. 

The need for sound preparation of dressage horses has been highlighted and confirmed each year since the introduction of the Young Horse events 10 years ago ... and correct basic training principals flow through to sustainable and progressive work in order to reach FEI level.

Listening, watching and learning from those with the scores on the board - and vast proven experience - is part of the personal development of riders and trainers.  Unfortunately Australian's have limited opportunities to take in training concepts and ideas from the best in the world as many of the Elite Clinics conducted by the EA closed to spectators.  This is a unique opportunity to observe this special lady working with Australian riders and their horses. Debbie promises clinics that ordinary riders can relate to and learn from.

Debbie McDonald will be in Australia in September 2009 to give a series of rider clinics ... and spectators are most welcome.  She has a similar background to many Australian riders, who fit their passion into the demands of a 'real' live with a family and other duties to juggle. She can relate to our challenges and is known to be a rider friendly instructor with great communication skills and a special gift for getting her message across.

Check out the dates and be sure to put a day aside to catch Debbie in your state.  I will be getting to Balmoral to meet the lady herself and hope to see support for her clinic - we need people like this sharing their knowledge and experience with Australian riders!
