Demonstration riders attending the 2013 Succeed/USDF FEI-Level Trainers Conference will be dressing in style during the two-day Wellington conference, thanks to The Horse of Course, Inc, one of the nation’s premier tack shops specializing in dressage tack, clothing and supplies. This year’s Trainers Conference will feature Olympian Steffen Peters and United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) National Young Dressage Horse Coach, Scott Hassler. The conference will be held January 21-22, 2013 at Mary Anne McPhail’s High Meadow Farm in Loxahatchee, Florida. Beth Haist, CEO of The Horse of Course, says she is thrilled to once again be supporting the Trainer’s Conference, an event that Horse of Course has been involved in for over ten years. “The Conference is a very important educational seminar for dressage riders, and that information is so important for the future of dressage,” Haist explains. This year’s conference will showcase Peters’ training techniques as he rides each day, and allow Peters and Hassler to engage attendees in peer-to-peer discussions in order to strengthen their problem solving skills and aid them in making better training decisions for a direct improvement in the horse.
The Trainers Conference allows FEI-Level trainers, and other individuals who meet the attendee criteria, to see training techniques and interact with two world class dressage trainers as they analyze each horse, determine where to start and identify training problems and how to solve them.
The Horse of Course is a strong supporter of the equestrian community and travels across the country with their mobile store, attending horse shows and sponsoring classes. “Dressage riders from around the world rely on our products, clothing and saddles and we really do feel like we are partners in their show careers,” Haist continues. From show supplies, bridles, saddles, and saddle pads to fashionable equestrian attire, breeches, jackets, shadbellys and accessories, The Horse of Course is a favorite stop for many of the nation’s dressage riders. “We are very excited to be the place to shop this winter season,” she says. “We have everything horses and riders will need while competing in the Florida shows.”
