Part 2: Live Rider Demo
Clinician: Chris Sorensen – NCCP High Performance 1 Coach, Canadian Equestrian Team Jumping Athletes and EC Board Member
Date: Sunday, April 8 – Afternoon Session
Stay for the afternoon and enjoy a rider demo led by NCCP High Performance 1 Coach, Canadian Equestrian Team athlete, and EC Board Member, Chris Sorensen. In this auditor-focused live demo, Chris will interact with the audience while leading three groups of demonstration riders (hunter, equitation and jumper) through core exercises he incorporates into his equestrian sport program to help riders progressively transition from hunter to equitation to jumper at the high performance level. Chris will educate the audience on his proven system of developing riders up through the national and international levels, while showing practical examples of his chosen exercises, approach to conditioning, and long- and short-term strategies. Please note that the afternoon portion is not NCCP-affiliated, but does qualify as a general PD points opportunity (up to 3 points) for NCCP Certified Coaches.
This full day of engaging education, as well as free transportation between the Brookstreet Hotel and Wesley Clover Parks is included with the purchase of a full EC Convention pass or a Sunday Day Pass.
Afternoon-only event tickets are also available for the Rider Demo with Chris Sorensen through the EC Convention Registration portal (transportation not included).
