August 12-13, 2016 at HETRA in Gretna, NE.
What's this all about?
NDA is excited to host this 2-day clinic with Lynn Palm, renowned Western Dressage horsewoman and founder of Palm Partnership Training.
A pioneer among women in the equine industry, Lynn Palm Pittion-Rossillon has long had a passion for teaching. Lynn’s many accomplishments include:
Impressive as her performance record is, Palm says that her primary goal is to educate others on forming correct riding skills and building knowledge to increase the riding longevity of their horses. Lynn and her husband, Cyril Pittion-Rossillon, have created Palm Partnership Training with the mission of improving the rider first and foremost. The pair conducts clinics at Fox Grove Farm in Ocala, FL and Ride Well clinics across the United States and abroad.
This is not just a "one ride per day" clinic—this is two full days of instruction on various topics, with lots of riding!
While Lynn teaches all clinics using dressage principles, this 2 day program has a dual purpose. Riders new to the discipline will learn the fundamentals that apply to all levels, the benefits of riding with correctness and accuracy through dressage figures and the control from precise transitions and rhythmical gaits. For riders who want to reach a new level in the discipline, let Lynn’s years of experience competing & coaching in Dressage offer simple and practical solutions to overcome challenges and achieve those goals.
The clinic will run from 9:00-5:00 on Friday and Saturday at HETRA in Gretna, NE. Participants will be scheduled for two full days of instruction, not just “a ride per day.” Friday’s schedule will include an hour discussion, followed by a two-hour evaluation and exercise of all the rider’s position and aids, a break for lunch, and then two group riding sessions. Saturday’s schedule will include an hour discussion, followed by an educational session about the “math” of dressage, reading (and calling) a dressage test, and utilizing dressage figures. After lunch, each rider will ride a test, with a caller, critiques and scoring.
