YR Dressage Squad and Development Program Training Weekend

11 – 12 March @ Werribee Park NEC.

The March training weekend is looking good with lots of applications and an exciting range of instructors including Olympian Mary Hanna who will be working with the Victorian Young Rider A Squad on Saturday. Mary is so busy with her many FEI horses and her plans to travel overseas so we are very lucky that she can give us a day and share her training methods.

We have also been able to secure the services of leading rider and coach Brett Parbery who is travelling down from NSW. Mary and Brett will work with local coaches.

Amongst the range of topics we plan to cover, in addition to the riding lessons, are:

  • poles and grids
  • veterinary sessions with popular vet Dr Emma Stellar-Hall
  • motivational speaker Katherine Stewart, who will share her philosophies
  • and our ever popular personal trainer Natalia Evertsz who will work with riders to improve their strength and suppleness.

Riders who have signed up for the Equestrian Australia Introductory Riding and Horse Management certificates will be able to continue working through those as well. Riders will also have a chance to put their name down for a protocol test ride (limited numbers).

Applications from existing Squad members close on 3 March and new applicants can find out how they can apply for Squad by downloading the form below.
