June Report - Pryde's EasiFeed Victorian High Performance Dressage Squad

It has been a busy year for the Squad. We have recently completed the last two clinics of the year.

April training clinic was held at Maree Tomkinson's beautiful property at Goldie. Lone Joergensen provided dressage instruction on the world class Ebb and Flow arena. Jodie Newall flew in from Canberra to provide a presentation on Equine Law in a private room at the Lancefield Hotel over dinner. The presentation was informative and very well received by Squad riders.

Pauline and Frank Carnovale of Benleigh Equestrian hosted the last of the Squad's five training clinics in June at their picturesque property in Curlewis. Rubber lined stables were made available to Squad members for overnight accommodation for their equine partners. They also hosted a Squad dinner at the completion of Dr Stuart Brown's off horse presentation on Suspensory Ligaments, Vet Check buyers/sellers to follow on from Equine Law April off horse presentation. Dr Brown also covered several interesting case studies.

We would like to sincerely thank Maree Tomkinson, Pauline and Frank Carnovale for their generosity providing training clinic venues.

As the Squad 2018/19 year comes to an end we review the activities conducted over the last 12 months.
