Oct 2017 - EE Foundation course lessons
The films this month are of the four students on the Enlightened Equitation Foundation Course this October, practising what they have learnt in lectures and on the simulators.
Claire has only been riding for three years and hopes to have her own horse soon, however she has some severe hip problems that cause her to be not only tight but in very considerable pain. She coped better on narrower Charlie than wide Friesian, Boo, but I have advised her to get some treatment as soon as possible. It may well just be very tight hip flexors or psoas muscle, so hopefully if this it will just be a matter of stretching exercises. Claire could ride very nicely once she gets sorted!
Ulrike is German, but lives in Wales where I taught her for a lesson at a clinic in the spring. She has her own horses but needed help with her riding to improve her position and seat. She has improved significantly by the end of the course. I wish I had film of her at the clinic in Wales so that members could see the very big difference already.
Linda doesn't have her own horses but rides two very nice Arabians and has access almost as if they were her own. I think she will now have better tools with which to school the Arab mares, not for competition, but for her own pleasure and experience.
Sarah has just bought a very lovely new pony - so nice that she has bought something that suits her size as a little, lightweight lady. The pony has super movement so Sarah hopes to do dressage with her. She is already a nice rider and needed help to refine her aids and technique.
