Intro to Working Equitation
Time & Location
About the Event
Love it or Leave it Ranch is excited to bring our first Working Equitation Clinic to this area 🤠 It combines dressage, with obstacles that may appear working around a farm or out on a trail, and finally a speed phase to be taken at the riders pace.
Working Equitation can be done in any tack western or English, or national styles. The partnership will first complete a dressage test with levels for basic right up to higher levels.
The next phase will be ease of handling. This phase tests the obedience and partnership of the horse rider as they complete obstacles. There are twenty different obstacles a course designer can choose from. The horse rider will complete this at their pace. Some of the obstacles include ringing a bell, crossing a bridge, lifting a pitcher, and riding with the garocha pole. Each of the obstacles incorporates style and enhances the horse’s ability to perform dressage.
The final phase a few of these obstacles are chosen by a judge to be completed at speed; again at the rider’s discretion and appropriate to the level of horse rider.
We are excited to have Marty come and share his knowledge with us this weekend.
