Tea, Cake & Train - NAF Star training for Pony Riders

"Tea, Cake & Train " - NAF Star Training for Ponies Sunday 28th January 2018 NAF 1*&2* & Sunday 11th Feburary 2018 NAF 3*

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
