LH Equestrian Management presents the Vancouver Island Dressage Symposium. Join us to "Educate Your Eye" with the expertise of FEI 4* judge Cesar Torrente from Colombia. The riders will ride through a warm-up demonstrating the paces & movements that is required at their level then ride a dressage test and afterwards work on any problem areas that are identified in the test in order to improve their scores. All of this, including the judge's scores, will be heard by the auditors so that you can see what the judges are looking for in real time throughout the levels of dressage. This will be an interactive and educational event for riders, coaches, judges, parents and any dressage enthusiast to better understand our sport of dressage. The Symposium is at Fairlawn Equestrian Centre in Brentwood Bay. Check out www.lhequestrianmanagement.com for more information and to sign up.
