Rider Position Analysis — 27th February 2019

With Centaur Biomechanics - Russell Guire

The way the rider sits on the horse will have a dramatic effect on its soundness, performance and development. The rider analysis sessions are designed for riders of all levels to help improve the rider's position and horse's way of going. With the use of high speed video cameras (capturing 20 x faster than the human eye), Visualise training jackets and Quintic software the rider's position and horse's way of going can be constructively analysed.

Great opportunity to focus on your riding position to ready yourself for the upcoming season, either flatwork or over fences.

Russell, who carries out the analysis, is a keen rider and competitor in dressage, was a former show jumper who has worked for Tim Stockdale and Di Lampard, as well as at the Young Rider Training Centre in Germany. He is a UKCC coach and holds a degree in Equine & Human Sports Science. He currently has a role as a PhD student at the Royal Veterinary College’s Structure & Motion Lab.

‘Straighten Up & Jump Right’ — 28th February 2019

With BS Approved UKCC Level 3 Coach Christine Shubrook

This one day workshop will work on pole and jumping exercises to attain and maintain straightness in your position and your horse’s way of going, using the German scales of training as a guide.
Straightness and the elements leading to it are a major factor in achieving the maximum power in your horse’s jump, your ability to ride the correct line to a fence, perform balanced turns and ongoing soundness – all of which lead to successful results.
This day works as a good follow up to the Rider Analysis clinic the previous day, which will look at how rider straightness is influencing how your horse moves and your performance.

The two ridden sessions, off horse session, light lunch.
£70.00 for the day.

"Tea, Cake & Train " - NAF Star Training for Ponies TBC

Many pony riders would like to gain their ‘NAF stars’, so they are eligible for the NAF style class, which has been run at the Inter Academy Show. The NAF star system has been created by British Showjumping to stimulate junior riders to create training goals and gain knowledge. It promotes good riding style and horsemanship.

The objective of this workshop is for the riders to measure where they are against the NAF standard and gain the knowledge and understanding to reach that standard, where required. If riders present their log books, and are to standard on the day I can sign them. Otherwise we can set training goals so they can be worked on and signed off another time, by any level III coach.

Each workshop will run over an afternoon and be limited to 4 riders. We will spend the first session
(90 minutes) working on the flatwork elements required at each star level and gymnastic excercises. The ponies can then retire to their transport to rest, and we (parents too!) will retire to the barn for tea, cake and an opportunity to explore the questions asked in the NAF log book about horse and rider wellbeing, and discuss possible answers with each other. Worksheets will also be provided. Refreshed, we will remount and work on the skills needed for jumping a good course, focusing on the techincal skills required at each level.

FOR THE 1*& 2* -. Riders should already be jumping consistently at 80cm (British Novice).
FOR THE 3* - Riders should be already be confidently jumping a minimum of 90cm and already have achieved their NAF 2*, OR be able to ride serpentines and leg yield proficiently, to apply.

Preference will be given to those who have already contacted BS Head Office to sign up for the scheme and obtain their log book. http://www.britishshowjumping.co.uk/training/pony-5-star-performance
