Info: Understanding conformation is an important part of riding horses, as undesirable conformation can limit your horse's longevity and capacity to be ridden. To discuss several common conformational 'faults' and their impact on performance, we have invited Dr Fiona Mead to present an educational and insightful talk. Your horse's intended use does have an impact on selection criteria, which Fiona will outline. She will also discuss how riding and assisting your horse's posture can help improve the way your horse moves and change them, for the better, in the long term. Veterinarian, Fiona Mead works locally and overseas mainly as an acupuncturist and biomechanics practitioner, (using animal osteopathy, chiropractic techniques and rehabilitation exercises), where she sees equine form and function impacting our horses every day. Come hear how you can assist your horse to live a longer, happier and more fulfilling life (whatever their conformation) and join us for wine and cheese!

INFO: Spend the morning with Jackie McAra - Equine Touch therapist learning how you can help your horses. Morning Tea will be provided and a takeaway sheet of some of the exercises you can do yourself afterwards

The Equine Touch is a gentle, non invasive, hands on discipline that addresses the horse as a whole without focusing on any particular problem in the body. A series of unique moves are performed all over the body in a choreographed pattern with observation periods interspersed throughout to allow the horse to process the message that is sent via the receptors under the skin and within the muscles.
