Landbeach Rd, CB246 Cambridge, Cambridgeshire
Book early — only 36 audience places which sold out early last year. Focusing on Horse Saddle Rider Asymmetry, Evaluation and Correction, this year's keynote speaker once again is top lameness referral vet, Dr Sue Dyson, who will be presenting a morning of asymmetry and compensatory gait.
The aim of the event to provide both equine therapists and saddle fitters with a selection of useful recognition and evaluation tools to assist with the saddle checking and fitting process, when considering all three components of horse, saddle and rider.
The mini convention, similar to last year, will be a highly informative mix of classroom and practical demonstration with both horses and riders.
Veterinary Physiotherapist Caroline Lindsay will demonstrate horse-saddle-rider challenges and how signs of asymmetry are reflected in the ridden horse together with rider evaluation and how to achieve the neutral pelvis riding position. Saddle maker and fitter, Malan Goddard, will share highly engaging snippets from her encyclopaedic knowledge on how saddles can help or hinder rider position. Ground schooling expert, Hanna Walton, will show us how remedial work in hand can be introduced to help the horse address issues of asymmetry. Other speakers to be announced shortly.
