Murrumbateman Foundation Course Filling Quickly
Kate is very happy to announce that she will be commencing a Foundation Course at Murrumbateman. We have 6 dates in the diary (see below for details) and the Arena at the Rec Grounds is booked. All participants will then be eligible to attend Graduate Clinics held at Kangadoo and elsewhere.
This particular course is designed specifically for horses that are already started under saddle and simply lacking foundation work (travelling in frame, independent hind quarter and shoulder control and so on).
If you feel that your horse is really not reaching his full potential then join Kate for the course. Spaces are strictly limited so email Kate today.
Field Day Demonstrations
Kate will be demonstrating at the following Field Days in 2014:
- Riverina - May 9-10, Griffith
- Mudgee - July 11-12
- Murrumbateman - October 18-19
Graduates of the Foundation Course (or those of you with equivalent training) will be offered Graduate Clinic Days at Kangadoo and around NSW.
These days will help you progress in your chosen discipline. Dates to be announced on the website.
Honours Research Project
Having completed her Equine Science degree last year, Kate is now doing an honours year. Her research project will investigate the effects of emotional level on cognition. Kate has always believed that getting the emotional level right when training led to a better outcome and less stressful experience for both horse and rider/trainer and this experiment is designed to put that theory to the test.
Emotional level will be assessed using heart rate, heart rate variability and eye temperature (using a infrared thermal camera), in addition to looking at both rein tension and scores on a behavioural scale.
