This will be an Educational weekend for all Riders, and especially Coaches!  The better we Sit, the Better the Horse goes.

Marcy has been travelling to California for these EXACT seminars since 2000… always returning with homework,  new tools,  and an experience only RWYM can deliver!  Notebooks full,  and revitalized passion  to practice, and improve oneself.

For the first time in Alberta we will be hosting such an event for the public-  we will take demo riders, private lessons, and auditors.  Early Bird rate until Feb 10 :  ride both days: $ 450. Audit the weekend $160.    Day rates/ at the Door TBA .

 

Alexander Technique Workshops -Full !

We knew there would be a high demand for this unique opportunity: to combine  the Alexander Technique with Dressage Seat lessons.

For this type of learning, the lessons are one on one, with personalized attention to your issues, pain, or persistent habits.  As dressage riders, we know the rider’s seat is Paramount. The rider score carries a Hefty coefficient for very good reason!

Alexander Technique is an effortless, efficient way to increase awareness, and give you better tools to use your body in all tasks.

 

If you are interested in seat lessons, working on Rider Bio-mechanics,  please contact us for future classes !

Dressage clinic with Anni MacDonald Hall- we loved it!

Lincoln and Marcy got down to business with bigger trot,  flying change work,  shoulder in on centerline,  Halfpass, and also- aiming for that pirouette canter!   Anni said he’s going to be a King at that :-) … since the October clinic, his changes are getting even better- the dreaded ‘late behind’s from his young glory-days jumping… and now that its HIS idea, well, he thinks that changes, and possibly sideways stuff is really cool!  Here’s just a snippet for those who couldn’t come out and watch in person.  A thrilling little taste of Carl Hester’s program through Anni’s enthusiastic style.

 

 

 

Dressage Lessons for Young Horses

A Big Congratulations- to Candice and her 5yo Canadian Warmblood mare Epic… not only did they survive their 2 mos Bootcamp dressage at Liberty Equestrian… they got out this summer with a great foundation to their jumping!  epic ribbons

One comment @ hunters > was that the mare was too collected. From another point of view, achieving’ forward and accepting the contact’ is basic training you can count on.  At any show- understand that the judges can’t imagine what mountains you have climbed, rivers you swam uphill… to get to this point.  We wish Candice and Epic many more well-collected rides. There should be an  award for that!    There is no secret kept closer, than one between horse and rider.
