2018 Tölt In Harmony Clinic and Competition

ABOUT THE CLINIC

We are very pleased to have Trausti Þór Guðmundsson back in Kentucky again- this time, right before the Triple World Ranking Shows- a perfect opportunity for you to train with an internationally recognized instructor, in preparation for the big weekend.

The clinic will be taking place Monday and Tuesday, October 1st & 2nd, 2018. Every horse & rider pair will receive TWO LESSONS each day- one private lesson and one group lesson.

Through instruction, Trausti will be working with each horse & rider to improve all elements of the Tölt in Harmony Training Scale:

  1. Rhythm and beat (regularity and tempo)
  2. Suppleness (elasticity/lack of tension)
  3. Contact (acceptance of the bit and aids)
  4. Impulsion (increased energy from hindquarters)
  5. Straightness (equal bend on both reins)
  6. Collection (engagement and balance)

On Wednesday, October 3rd, 2018, we will be hosting a Tölt In Harmony Competition. This comprehensive riding test is free to clinic participants.
