Hey guys,

I am just watching a southern stars dressage saddle for sale but I have never really had anything to do with them, so I was hoping someone could help me out?

I know that everyone will have different options but I am just after a rough idea what to expect.

I used to have a bates isabelle which I sold with my old horse and I really loved the bigger thigh Velcro things under the saddle and found it put me in a great position.

My questips for this saddle would be does it out your legs in a forward or back position? Would it suit me? (I am 168cm tall, my femur is around 35-40cm) ane my 16.2 tb quite broad shoulders, larger (but not skinny and extremely honey wither).

I'm sorry if this is quite a vague question but I am just after someone with more experience with this saddle's opinion Smile

thankyo Smile

Seeking out great clinicians/instructors that are focused on the classical method/biomechanics/straightness training etc that conduct lessons/clinics in Victoria (and may be willing to come near Geelong). Theory as well as practical would be fantastic too. Local/interstate/international - doesn't matter!

Who have you loved (or not loved)? What kind of format for clinics have you found best? Do you find you get the most out of a clinician if you attend a clinic every time they are in your area?

Unfortunately we have had to cancel Wednesday's Mid Week Dressage Event at Elmore Equestrian Park as with today's rain, it is now too wet.

We would particularly like to thank our sponsor World's Best Hoof Oil and everyone who volunteered to help out pencilling and gear checking on the day.

I don't want somebody that competes all over Australia or anything, as I'm only 14 I just do pony club competitions.
Preferred somebody in the Latrobe Valley area
Don't mind if it's an eventing instructor, as I do compete in eventing but dressage isn't my strongest point Confused

Julica will conduct a 3-day clinic 28th to 30th March 2014. This will be her third visit to Rimini Park. I have had 2 cancellations and am hoping to fill the clinic and wanted forum people to have the opportunity to work with this wonderful and talented teacher. Julica teachers at all levels from nervous beginner to grand Prix and the focus is on finding harmony with the horse, which all begins with the rider. The clinic includes a body work session each day and one evening a lecture and dinner at a local restaurant. Horse accomodation available also. Please pm me for more details

Please share your training secrets Very Happy

I'm just looking for ideas for some new exercises that I can play around with in our training to help strengthen and supple my horse.

I'll start Very Happy

I love riding a 'square' either in walk trot or canter. so instead of turning the horse around the corner like a circle you ride a straight line and then in the corner of the square you turn the shoulders (kind of like a quarter pirouette) and then ride straight again. Improves control of the shoulders, improves straightness, improves balance, engages the hind quarters and encourages the horse to take more weight behind. Especially great in the canter to get them more balanced and 'sitting'. Aids through the turn are outside rein and outside leg.

Another classic:
In walk trot or canter, taking the circle smaller (down to around 10m) and then leg yeilding the circle out to 20m.

Now your turn!
