North Region Equine Biomechanics Seminar

10 Oct 2017

BHS North Region presents an Equine Biomechanics SeminarBHS North of England presents an Equine Biomechanics Conference

Until horses learn to talk, we will never fully understand what they are thinking and feeling or the true effect upon them, of how we ride and the equipment we use.

However, through the application of science and the continuous training and development of teacher and rider skills, we can improve the way in which we ride and care for our horses, and therefore ultimately improve the overall welfare of the horse.

At this exciting event, we will be joined by Russell Guire of Centaur Biomechanics - who uses science and technology to improve both the rider position and horse performance.

Centaur Biomechanics' services and products are all backed up by extensive research spanning more than 50 projects, looking at all aspects of equestrian sport including more recently, the Fairfax range and their revolutionary Performance Girth (cited as Team GB's secret weapon at the 2012 Olympics).

Alongside Russell will be Jo Winfield FBHS who gained her Fellowship of the BHS in 2007, and specialises in helping riders and their horses at all levels to perform to their full potential.

Jo is a British Eventing Coach, British Dressage Judge and an Assessor for The British Horse Society Equine Excellence Pathway.

Join us on Tuesday 10 October 2017 at Blackdyke Farm Riding and Competition Centre, near Carlisle for this exciting event, which counts as CPD for Accredited Professional Coaches but will be of broad interest and is open to everyone.
