Physical Focus - Connecting Conformation and Training
This new collaboration between Tanja Kraus Horsemanship and Equine Healthworks gives you the opportunity to assess your horse's conformation for both strengths and areas in need of strengthening.
Examining an equine skeleton presents a chance to contrast and compare conformation, building an understanding of how this affects and enhances abilities, while also predisposing to common pathologies (that we obviously wish to prevent happening - or recurring). Addressing these through appropriate training exercises will be explored. It is led by experienced clinician Tanja Kraus, and bodyworker and researcher Jane Clothier, PhD. This workshop will involve lectures, hands-on assessments of your horse, groundwork and ridden training.
