Each day will consist of 4 hours of lecture in the morning, followed by lunch and then 4 demonstration sessions where Gerd will be able to give insight to the benefits of specific training techniques for you and your horse regardless of your specific discipline.

Who will this clinic benefit: Riders, trainers, and veterinary professionals who want to learn more about the role of biomechanics and correct riding in:
• Overall horse health and soundness
• Reducing mental and physical stress in horse and rider
• Improved outcomes for horses with chronic lameness and soundness issues

This symposium is appropriate for all disciplines and levels of riding proficiency.
About Dr. Gerd Heuschmann: Dr. Gerd Heuschmann trained as a Bereiter (master rider) in Germany before qualifying for veterinary study at Munich University. There he specialized in equine orthopedics for 2 years before accepting a post as the head of the breeding department at the German Equestrian Federation (FN) , which he eventually left to start his own practice in Warendorf. He has been an active member of the “hyperflexion” (previously referred to as “Rollkur”) debate, weighing in at the 2005 USDF National Symposium and the 2006 FEI Veterinary and Dressage Committees’ Workshop.
Gerd is the author of:
• Tug of War: Classical Versus "Modern" Dressage: Why Classical Training Works and How Incorrect "Modern" Riding Negatively Affects Horses' Health
• Balancing Act: The Horse in Sport, an Irreconcilable Conflict?
• If Horses Could Speak: How Incorrect "Modern" Riding Negatively Affects Horses' Health (DVD)
