International Trainers to Present "Naked Truth of Riding" Symposium
RELEASE: April 15, 2009
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: By Chris Stafford
International dressage rider and trainer, Heather Blitz, together with Mary Wanless, BSc, BHSI, FRSA, and Dr. Hilary Clayton, BVMS, PhD, MRCVS, will present the "Naked Truth of Riding," a two-day symposium on May 9-10, 2009, at the Leatherdale Equine Center in Minneapolis, MN.
The symposium delivers a complete package of information. Students will learn about the relationship between veterinary medicine and dressage performance, with special emphasis on prevention and treatment of lameness problems. They will also hear and see, with the help of demonstration lessons, the difference it makes in the horse when riders correct the way they sit and use their bodies. It is eye opening to see how many of the horses evasions disappear when the rider gets better.
Blitz has studied and used biomechanics in her system of training horses to the highest level for more than 15 years. "We are really looking forward to our next "Naked Truth of Riding" symposium. The Leatherdale Equine Center is a fantastic climate-controlled indoor facility, which is also offering tours of the veterinary hospital in addition to the two information packed days," said Blitz. "There is no other event to offer such comprehensive and understandable training that helps to unravel the mystery of good riding. Students will take home information from these two days that will last a lifetime."
Wanless, a renowned author, has dedicated her life to translating the secrets of talented riders into bite-sized chunks that make all the difference to every rider.
Dr. Clayton of the McPhail Equine Performance Center at Michigan State University is the leader in the field of equine biomechanics and the science of saddle fit and rein tension.
