2014 Dressage Symposium

The AEF is looking into the possibility of organizing a Dressage Symposium and bringing in Dutch Olympic Silver Medalist, Ellen Bontje to Calgary, the weekend of June 7-8, 2014. The idea would be to have demo riders ride tests through the levels and Ellen would coach them with a headset and help improve the tests. There would be a question/answer session at the end of each day.

Please help us gauge the interest/feasibility of hosting this event by completing this short, 2 minute survey linked below.

The survey will close for responses Thursday, Feb 27 at which time we will make a determination on the feasibility of offering the event.

Winter Cool Down  
What to do with a wet horse in the cold
After a winter workout a 10 - 15 minute walk will not only guard against muscle soreness, it is essential to allow their skin to dry.

One method does not fit all. Your winter workout regime will be different depending on a  number of factors including whether your horse is: clipped, blanketed, lives inside or outside, maintaining condition or working on higher intensity training.  Read more...
