On May 10-11, 2014, Dr Gerd Heuschmann, world renowned expert on equine biomechanics, will lead a symposium at Dancing Horse Farm, 4080 Weisenberger Rd., Lebanon Ohio 45036.

Dr. Heuschmann is the author of Tug of War: Classical Versus Modern Dressage: Why Classical Training Works and How Incorrect Riding Negatively Affects Horses' Health, and the film, If Horses Could Speak. In this Borné Saddlery-sponsored symposium, Dr. Heuschmann will lecture on biomechanics and do demonstrations using four horses and riders, including Borné-sponsored rider and Dancing Horse Farm owner and head trainer, Jen Truett, who already is a user and proponent of correct biomechanical riding.

Dr. Heuschmann will also be sharing information from his new book, Balancing Act: The Horse in Sport - An Irreconcilable Conflict?

Dr. Heuschmann will spend each morning lecturing and showing slides to teach about the horse’s biomechanics. At lunch time (which is catered), Karen Borne of Borné Saddlery will discuss saddle fit for both the horse and the rider. In the afternoons, Dr. Heuschmann will work with the four riders.

This symposium has received approval for credit from the USDF University. If you are a USDF member, you can pay $5 at the door to receive credit. If you are not a member but want credit, you can pay for your USDF membership and the University credit both at the door.


The morning sessions will include lectures and slides. The Early Bird Special price of $100 (which includes lunch and a beverage both days) ends April 26, after which it will be $135. Go to Borne Saddlery's Website to sign up.

We recently received the following message from FEI and USEF Licensed Official, Cleon Wingard:

“I think your Heuschmann Symposium is one of the most important symposiums ever given in the area.”

High praise indeed, and from someone who really knows about training. Sign up soon so you will avoid the higher rates that will apply after April 26!
