The NEDA Fall Symposium will be held November 1 & 2, 2014 at Apple Knoll in Millis, MA. Olympian and cavaletti queen extraordinaire, Ingrid Klimke demonstrates: Training The Classical Way through Fitness and Gymnastic Exercises. Live demonstrations with horses ranging from 4-year-olds to Grand Prix veterans; all will be demonstrating varied exercises with cavaletti. Dr. Ina Gösmeier presents: Natural therapies to support the health and improve the rideability of the horse. Dr. Ina will be lecturing and presenting practical applications of her specialties with live demonstrations and Powerpoint. Her utilization of chiropractic, acupuncture and herbal methods in addition to standard veterinary care generate wonderful discussions. These rarely available lectures are wildly popular and not to be missed.
Demo Rider Application (due by Oct 8th)
We're looking for demonstration horse/rider partnerships from both dressage and eventing disciplines. Younger lower level horses can be 4, 5 or 6 and will be demonstrating the beginning process of cavaletti work. Intermediate or mid level horses need to be able to do simple changes and/or flying lead changes; they also will be using cavaletti. More experienced (older) horses will be exhibiting the more advanced movements using increasingly intricate exercises and again will be using cavaletti.
