Introduction to Working Equitation for Gaited Horses Clinic

Friends of Sound Horses (FOSH) announced that it is offering an "Introduction to Working Equitation for Gaited Horses Clinic" at Meritage Farm, Robertsville, Missouri on April 13 & 14, 2019. Clinicians are Howard and Erica Peet.  Ms. Peet is an "r" judge with WE United.  The clinic is open to all riders of gaited breeds, both English and Western.

Day 1 of the clinic includes the fundamentals of Working Equitation, Introduction to WE Dressage, Individual Coaching, Ride a Test—Fix-a-Test and Explanation of Obstacles for the Ease of Handling phase.  Day 2 features working obstacles, applying dressage principles to obstacles and walking and riding an obstacle course.  Rider participant fee is $250 for both days and includes stall fees and lunch.  Auditing is available for $20 per day, $30 for the weekend.

FOSH President, Teresa Bippen, stated "Gaited horse enthusiasts are thrilled that both WE United and Confederation for Working Equitation revised their rulebooks for 2019 to allow gaited horses to compete at an intermediate gait when a trot is requested.  With so many gaited horse owners wanting to participate in Working Equitation and the recent rule change, FOSH added Working Equitation to its lineup of gaited sport horse disciplines that are annually recognized and rewarded by FOSH."

With a large indoor arena, including dressage ring and outdoor riding/working areas, Meritage Farm provides an ideal venue for riders to fully engage with the Peets and practice their newfound Working Equitation knowledge with their gaited horses.

FOSH thanks the Humane Society of the United States and Sara Patton of Meritage Farm, Robertsville, MO for their generous donations to FOSH to support the clinic.

Since 1998, FOSH is the only national organization dedicated to the promotion of the sound gaited horse emotionally, mentally and physically; fair competition; and humane training and education regardless of breed or discipline.
