10.00 – 10.50 hrs Balance in the saddle, riders are the key factor, by Fryso Saddles and Marado HorseCare (Dutch)
In cooperation with Marloes Oldenhuizing from Marado HorseCare, Fryso Saddles presents a clinic on what influence posture and balance have on the effect of riders on their horse. Correct posture and balance improve the effect of aids and increase harmony between rider and horse. These aspects will be investigated with the help of a bouncy horse ‘Marado’s Joker’. Next step is to put the newly-won knowledge into practice. In this clinic riders take centre stage instead of horses.

Before you can put a horse to work by asking him to carry a rider or pull a carriage the horse must first learn to control his own movement. This seems like plain logic, which it is if you make use of the way in which a horse is built. In this clinic a horse is put on the lunge and worked in a ‘grazing outline’. Next the horse is worked in double reins to develop its posture for carrying a rider or pulling a carriage. All this is done following the logic of biomechanics of the horse.
