Developing Collection Symposium
April 8, 2022 - April 10, 2022
“Dressage is biomechanics in action. Understanding biomechanics gives you a new perspective on training.” Dr. Hilary Clayton
With the generous support of The Dressage Foundation & Violet Hopkins Grant
Featuring Dr. Hilary Clayton & Jennifer Truett
This symposium will feature presentations by world-famous veterinary biomechanics researcher, Dr. Hilary Clayton. Jennifer Truett, celebrated USDF FEI Certified Instructor, will team up with Dr. Clayton to work with horse-rider demonstration pairs on issues of self-carriage.
In-Person Space is Limited – Reservations Required
A Live YouTube video stream of the symposium will be available during the event on a one-time, paid subscription link.
The Symposium will feature a presentation on the biomechanics of self-carriage by Dr. Hilary Clayton, and illustrative mounted sessions focusing on self-carriage and collection, overseen and coached by Jennifer Truett, utilizing the material presented by Dr. Clayton. The focus of the mounted sessions will be to explain and demonstrate to the auditors exactly what is meant by self-carriage; how it is necessary for collection;, and how to work with horses to increase their ability to collect. Rider/horse pairs will be demonstrating degrees of self-carriage in collection and lengthening, in all three gaits, as appropriate for the conformation of their particular horses, the horses’ training, and the dressage level in which they show. In-person and remote auditors will be encouraged to submit and ask questions during the sessions.
