COMPETE AND LEARN

COMPETITION

Looking to compete in equitation?

Working equitation competition consists of four phases.

  1. Dressage – encourages harmony between horse and rider. Tests are conducted in a 20m x 40m arena.
  2. Maneability – horse and rider demonstrate how calmly, precisely and stylishly they deal with obstacles.
  3. Speed – a test speed, agility, athleticism using the same obstacles as the maneability phase.
  4. Cattle – tests the ability of the horse and rider to work cattle individually and with teammates.

Compulsory phases are dressage, maneability and speed.

I just love trot poles, raised and on the ground. It really helps elevate the legs and establish rhythm.

Handsome and I like shoulder-in exercises and trot poles.

So my training program includes a dressage coach (eyes on the ground), setting up obstacles . Work with poles is a favourite 🐴
