Rider Development Clinics
Last year three Rider Development Clinics were conducted and were well recieved by riders. PCAV are planning to run 4 Rider Development Clinics during 2012. These clinics are aimed at riders in Grade 1, 2 & 3 Dressage and Horse Trials and Grades A, B & C in Showjumping.
Host Clubs Needed
We are currently looking for Clubs to host these clinics so that dates and venues can be confirmed. Any Club who would be interested in hosting a Rider Development Clinic should call Kate Wilson at the PCAV State Office on 03 8685 8925 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
Yogi Briesner Clinic
Racing Victoria organised for Yogi Briesner to come out to Australia to conduct some training and offered Pony Club Association of Victoria the opportunity to host a clinic for our riders, coaches, Club Officials and other interested Pony Club personnel. Pony Club Association of Victoria extends our thanks to Racing Victoria for giving our members this opportunity to attend a clinic conducted by such an accomplished individual. The clinic was well recieved by those who attended, watch the PCAV Making A Difference magazine for pictures and reports from this clinic.
Learn to Track Ride at your Club Rally
Racing Victoria in consultation with Pony Club Association of Victoria are offering Clubs the opportunity to offer their members a Track Riding Clinic at their Club Rally. A Racing Victoria instructor will attend your club rally, provide track pads, deliver tuition in how to saddle up correctly for the track and how to ride in a balanced position with short stirrups over various gaits.
Track riding can be great fun, is great exercise and can develop and strengthen your riding technique. It can also easily supplement your income whilst studying or working part time over school breaks and holidays both here and overseas. This will be a lot of fun and something a little different for all to enjoy!!
