Next weekend Your Horse Live gets into full swing at Stoneleigh Park (8-10 November).
We’ve already given you a sneak peek at who will be in the spotlight in the BETA Arena, plus the stars you can meet at the Your Horse magazine Stage, but there’s so much more to look forward to.
The Country and Stable Arena will be buzzing with motivation and inspiration as our experts dish out tons of practical tips and training advice. Learn simple, proven techniques to help you get the best out of your horse.
Full body workout
Get a taste for equine-gym style polework with rider and trainer Claire Llewellyn. She’ll be showcasing exercises to develop your horse’s strength, suppleness and self-carriage, while working with riders to help with their balance, core strength and feel. All simple to replicate at home.
Dressage rider and trainer Alison Kenward is back at Your Horse Live and this weekend she will be sharing her simple tips for competing in freestyle dressage to music. She’ll be explaining how to get started and what is important to remember when designing your test and choosing your music. Alison will also show us why schooling to music can enhance your horse’s way of going, even if you don’t plan to compete.
Improve your position with science
We’ve seen Russell Guire from Centaur Biomechanics in action before, and it’s a very enlightening experience. This weekend, Russell is tackling all things position. He’s got a whole host of great insights to share on what we can work on to become posture perfect, and to improve our horse’s performance too. All Russell’s work is backed up by extensive research, so you’re in good hands.
The fun challenge for all
TREC is a fun discipline that any horse and rider can enjoy, whatever their skill level. It’s a three-phase test of planning and long-distance riding in unfamiliar territory, and there’s plenty of opportunity to do well. TREC trainer and three times British champion Amanda Marfleet from TREC GB is joining us at Your Horse Live, along with some equestrian friends, to explain how the sport works and how to get involved – there’s a class for everyone. If you’re keen to give TREC a try, this is the place to be.
