Christoph Hess will be coming in July to the area.
Kelly It is rare to see a rider who is truly passionate about the horse and his training, taking a profound interest in dressage with self-abnegation, and making this extraordinarily subtle work one of the dominant motivations of his life.\"
You are welcome! Nancy is great! very knowledgeable about horses...sometimes scary smart LOL. I have worked with her and her horse for a couple years now and have learned alot! I might be working with her during the clinics-doing eval's on horses, if she thinks there might be a soreness issue. Or I might do my own clinic on Attitude problems.
You don't know of Nancy?? She wrote a book...Biomechanics of the Dressage Horse and Rider...she's an L Judge with Distinction-really knows her stuff! And she's very much into teaching the horse correctly-without any force. Really amazing...her horse will do a piaffe, when you just say the word! And it's correct, you can see the horse getting herself set up to use herself correctly! She's the horse (and person with me)in the pics on my site.
Nancy is a member of my local GMO and often does demos and educational presentations for us, besides being a well respected judge as you already know. She is a wealth of information and I'm considering doing her clinic in October if I can afford it. IMO it's a pretty reasonable cost for the dearth of information I'm sure everyone will get out of it!
She will also do lessons! I'm going to start taking from her this summer. she's something, she will use the dressage whip on her horse, to point to the muscle the horse needs to use, and the horse does it! Rosie is such a hoot! These are things you'll learn to do.
kris, she has her own place (small but nice)and lives just south of Oxford. She will travel to give lessons! If you're interested, give me you're e-mail/ph# (in a pm if you need to)and I will forward it to her.
