When people sign up for a Training Wheel/Clinic Ride, they come to the show and participate in every way as though they were competing, but rather then being on their own, they are assigned an experienced WE competitor to be their coach. The coach can either be right outside the dressage court or if needed even inside the court to ensure that the rider is able to successfully complete all the movements on the dressage test. Unlike a reader when someone is actually competing, the coach is allowed to provide additional help. for example, if the rider is to make a 20m circle at B, the coach might say," OK-now pretend you are on a lunge line and I am holding the end of the line. Keep the same distance from me as you are now and ride all the way around me in a big circle."
During EOH and Speed the coach is in the arena with the rider, assisting with any obstacles that are too much for the horse that day (for example, the coach may ring the bell for the rider as the rider steadies the horse in the corridar. The coach can also give advice such as, "Make sure you use your right hand to lift the jug, since you used that hand to ring the bell."
Although they do not recieve awards- Training Wheel/ Clinic riders will recieve written feedback from the judge on their scoresheets and can get their feet wet without drowning in all the details.
Stalls available for additional $10 per day. 7 elec/water hookups on site- reserve early- $25 a day.
Ribbons and prizes will be awarded.
