Dressage4Kids Educational Program offers Low Cost Program for Riding Enthusiasts

Bedford, NY (December 29, 2009) - Dressage4kids, Inc invites everyone interested in horses and riding to their Seventh Annual Weekend Educational Program. The program is Saturday and Sunday, January 31/February 1 at the Nonnewaug Regional School in Woodbury, CT.

Thanks to very generous sponsorship from The Kuehner Foundation, the fee for each day is $20 for adults and $10 for youth if your application is received by January 23. The day fee includes lunch. Hotels are located in Woodbury, Southbury, and Waterbury, CT.

There will be lectures on subjects of interest to everyone involved in horses such as Skeleton and Aging by Teeth, Evaluating Hay and Feed, How We Learn, Going to the Olympics as a Groom, Improving your Competition Scores and Marketing Your Business. There will be a peer roundtable discussion for parents and one for professionals.

There are also four unique multi sessions: How to Teach (not what to teach) for instructors; Preparing for FEI Level Competition for advanced youth riders; Supporting (not smothering) Your Athlete for parents and trainer/instructors; and Judging Conformation for anyone.

The Saturday sessions for youth are sponsored by the Connecticut Dressage Association Vista Vintage Award Program.

Dr. Brendan Furlong, one of the most highly respected vets in the US, will speak on Saturday morning on “Keeping the Dressage Horse Sound”. Dr. Furlong has been the official team vet for the Jumping, Eventing, and Driving teams at Olympic and other international competitions since 1996. Wendy Drumm and Advanced Equine Research LLC are sponsoring his appearance.

On Sunday Dr. Michael Stewart will speak on “Laminitis: New Ideas, Approaches and Hope” as well as A Physical and Mental Approach to Preventing Burnout and the Ability to Move Forward in an Intensive Training Program.
