Pedro Neves Comes To Kandoo Equine
What the participants said about Pedro's clinic:
"It was a wonderful opportunity to gain some insights into the training & competition requirements of Working Equitation from such a highly experienced & world renowned competitor as Pedro Neves. Pedro was a very open & approachable instructor with a great sense of fun. I would highly recommend his clinics to anyone considering attending."
"Kate, Pedros clinic was fabulous, not only was Pedro a great instructor but his methods , teaching and sense of humour was enjoyable to be around! It was a perfect weekend, terrific people, horses, weather, lunches was all tops! bring on more with Pedro!"
"Thank you so much for organising the weekend clinic with Pedro. He was fantastic! I achieved so much more than I thought possible in such a short period time – and all fun with no stress. Watching everyone else progress was also fabulous – with lots of encouragement and a good few laughs. When can we do it again?"
"I was impressed with Pedro's seemingly endless patience and the way he tailored each session to the level of knowledge and training for each horse and rider. I had so many light bulb moments, I just hope I remember them all. I'll definitely be tracking Pedro to catch him when he comes back to Australia."
"The clinic was wonderful. Pedro is really all about controlling your horse without using your hands too much. Changing the gaits from collected to working to medium with your body which allows you to tackle the obstacles no matter what the size of your horse. It was also about having fun for both horse and rider."
Clinics are conducted at Kangadoo. They begin at 9am for a 9:30 start and run through to 4pm. The cost is $125 per horse.
Everyone is welcome, even those of you that are not yet in the saddle or comfortably trotting and cantering in a large spaces. The clinics are tailored around the individuals involved and focus on the EOH, general obstacle handling, collection and control. Spaces are strictly limited so please let me know if you plan to attend.
Clinics will be held at Kangadoo once a month and you can come and join and learn all about it. Kate is now a qualified instructor and judge in Working Equitation. We will attend state and national competitions as a Kandoo Club group and all horse and rider levels are welcome.
