Eventing webinar - Coaching

One significant difference between the past years, and now, is the inability of the riders to have their horses thinking by themselves, and given time to sort out a question. Too much disciplined dressage and jumping coaching has affected this. The concern on Athlete’s cross country education has been raised several times by Coaches & experienced Athletes.

Laurent Bousquet, international Eventing Coach and Member of the Risk Management Steering Group, will be your host.
