Horse Saddle Rider Kinetic Anatomy Practical (Deposit)

Sunday, March 01, 2020 - Monday, March 02, 2020
09:00 AM - 04:00 PM
Harwich, UK

This 2 day practical session held over a Sunday and Monday has been created for equine paraprofessionals and competition riders that want to ultimately address the horse saddle and rider as a combination. It is being run in conjunction with a six hour online study module and consolidates the topics covered in this module.

Here is the link to the online study module which is a prerequisite to this practical session and must be completed beforehand:

Full ticket price is £200 for the two days (12 hours) CPD. The advance payment of £50 represents a deposit (plus a £3 booking fee). Balance of £150 to be paid on the day before the start of the presentation at registration (opens 9.00am).

Free tea, coffee and snacks all day - including a sandwich wrap lunch which attendees can make themselves from a selection of fillings.

Accessible to European attendees - the venue is located a few minutes from Harwich International Ferry Port and pick up from the port will be arranged at no cost.

This is a unique horse-saddle-rider lecture combination presentation with Caroline Lindsay, Veterinary Physiotherapist, graduate Sports Therapist, qualified Saddle Fitter and certified clinical educator. The aim is to enhance the therapist's or saddle fitter's confidence in making assessments of the horse-saddle-rider combination as one unit, rather than only focusing on a single component of that combination.

Topics are:

Rider & Equine Skeleton.

Rider Static Posture Evaluation.

Identification of Equine & Human Equitation Muscles.

Location of Equine Trigger Points.

Panniculus Tests.

Equine Condition Scoring.

Identification of the Available Saddle Area & Basic Saddle Fit Checking

Session content is highly applied so that the learner will soon be practising horse and rider saddle fit checking principles, with relevant knowledge of the living bodies that lie above and beneath the saddle. The online and offline presentations form a spiral learning experience, with related future presentations, towards the ultimate goal of proficient professional reasoning in the assessment and preparation of the modern sport horse and pony, together with their saddles and riders, for the improvement and sustainability of the competition partnership.

This presentation is the first module in a series under development to progress learners towards performance preparation of horse, saddle and rider combinations. Manual techniques combined with ground schooling, rider stabilisation and saddle fit checking methods will ultimately qualify learners to make a practical contribution to the improvement and sustainability of horse, saddle and rider combinations. This qualification will ultimately lead to professional registration of graduates. Accreditation is pending and it is scheduled to be ready for enrolment in the Spring of 2020. Anyone successfully completing elements of the proposed course before enrolment will be given credit for recognition of prior learning. Contact us for further information.

Learners are directed to also complete the 3 hour Equine Vocational Study Skills module which is free to participate in.
