Is your horse a good little mover?

THOSE looking to put their horse’s best foot forward can find out more at an Alnorthumbria Equine seminar next week.

Farrier Haydn Price, who worked with Great Britain’s gold medal-winning dressage team and silver medal eventing team, will be giving a presentation alongside top dressage judge Margot Tiffany.

The Watch This Pace session will discuss gait analysis, the importance of examining how a horse moves and what you can learn to advance its performance. This will be followed by a demonstration with horses young and old, where Mr Price will put into practice some of the points made.

He developed his business specialising in performance horses, regularly lectures internationally and is also consultant farrier to the British Equestrian Federation.

His career has focussed on remedial shoeing and the study of equine locomotion.

“I am really looking forward to giving this presentation,” he said.

“It will certainly give all those who attend food for thought and a fresh perspective on an often over-looked aspect of horse care and performance.”

Ms Tiffany, a highly-respected instructor, examiner and List 2 dressage judge, who also runs Northallerton Equestrian Centre, will talk about what riders can do to make their horse perform to the best of its ability.

The Alnorthumbria Equine Clinic opened just over a year ago at Fairmoor.

Director Lesley Barwise-Munro, who was an Olympic vet, said: “Both Haydn and Margot are at the top of their specialist fields and I know they will pass on invaluable information to help those horse owners attending to ensure that they keep as up to date as possible with current equine affairs.”

The seminar is taking place on Thursday, October 18, at the Gubeon Equestrian Centre, from 5pm. For more information or to book a place, call 01670 897597.
