INTRODUCTION TO CONNECTED RIDING (Vic)
on Sunday March 15.
If you’re not sure if you want to commit to a 3-day clinic, and fence sitting doesn’t do it for you, this could be the perfect opportunity to find out more about Connected Riding, and get a feel for Trisha’s style. Relevant to all disciplines. $140 gets you a spot for the day, maximum 6 horse/rider combinations (unstarted/unridden horses OK – plenty of ground work, off-horse position work). 9am for 9.30am sharp start. Fence sitting available at $25 per day or part thereof. BYO lunch, tea/coffee provided.
If you’re keen for a PRIVATE LESSON, and have done a CR clinic with either Trisha or Peggy in the past, we can probably squeeze a couple in at the end of the day – $70.
Trisha Wren www.trishawren.com is an experienced horsewoman, originally from Scotland, who spent two years as Mark Rashid’s assistant in the USA. She subsequently worked with Peggy Cummings and is the only certified Connected Riding Instructor in the Southern Hemisphere. Based in New Zealand, with regular clinics in Australia.
