A challenging and informative class

Make no mistake, this Camp is challenging on many levels. I am very much a newbie in this sport and this course was really eye opening. The map exercises gave me the opportunity to look at the WE course from Intro through Master's which no doubt will be helpful as I progress in this sport. As you work though the modules, you are pushed to give the rule book more than just a cursory glance, The course also illustrated aspects of WE that I never thought of. It didn't occur t me that the course designer and the judge were two different people, and that the judge would appreciate challenges to judge as well as riders having challenges to navigate. Thinking from the judge's point of view has given me insight into how I should plan and execute a course. This course is well worth the cost, which for me is about three lessons. My advice is to make sure you plan enough time. It was much more intense and took up much more of my time than expected so I really had to push to fit it into my already full schedule (despite COVID), I recommend that anyone getting into or progressing though WE take this course.

Rider Strategy

I found this course very well done. There was a great deal of effort to illustrate Working Equitation for someone new to the sport, like me, and for those more advanced. Trish has a straight forward approach as a instructor and provided clear guidelines. I recommend this course. Thanks Trish, I learned a great deal as there is a significant amount of information to digest. Nancy Barbour

Helped me get "my head in the game."

Before I took this course, I had participated in a couple of WE shows. I knew enough to get around the courses, but this class went in depth about the rules and technical aspects of riding each individual obstacle and putting them together. Mapping the different courses made me think out my routes as if I were going to ride them for a competition. I am hopping this mental practice will help me the next time I show! Thank you, Trish, for your time and patience while hosting these classes! Julie Lamberton

Course Design Camp

This was a challenging, but enjoyable way to learn about Working Equitation Course Design . Trish shared her expertise in the video lessons in clear, easily understandable presentations . She gave prompt and constructive feedback on each Map designed and Course ridden. I would recommend this course to anyone who is interested in furthering their education in the wonderful sport of Working Equitation. Having good computer skills as well as access to a large screen computer, printer and scanner would make navigation around the community and the lessons easier to complete. Kay Harris Risdahl
