March 24th Mounted Lessons and Unmounted Education
Mark your calendars for the afternoon of March 24th at Bent Creek Farm! It promises to be a great afternoon of learning for everyone! We will have Andria Pooley-Ebert teaching mounted lessons and Emma Schmitz teaching unmounted. One group will ride while the other group does unmounted and then we’ll switch. If we end up with more people than can fit in two groups we’ll adjust accordingly.
Emma Schmitz is a C2/HB pony clubber from Silver Bits Pony Club. This summer she hopes to show Training Level eventing with her horse Titan and begin teaching more riding lessons to students in her area.
Emma will be teaching:
- D-levels: conditioning and cool out of your horse as it relates to understanding the purpose of easing your horse in to work, how you know you went too far, how to know your horse is adequately cooled out, why it matters, and what you can do to actively cool them out in the winter and in the summer
- C-levels: how to create a conditioning plan, specifically principles of long slow distance, interval training, progressive loading, peaking, tapering, aerobic, and anaerobic exercise
Everything will be held at Bent Creek Farm, 2330 Turner Ave NE, Solon, IA. Please tell Barb and Curt thank you!
Cost is $30 for TRPC members, $40 for non-members. All are welcome. Register online today! Bring payment on the 24th. See you at the barn!
