This webinar is a fantastic opportunity to learn from the experts within para-equestrian sport and gain familiarity on human impairments and equine paces. This webinar is not a medical lecture; it is an overview for equestrian coaches based on information from different therapeutic associations.

The webinar will address the following in relation to human impairments:

  • What the coach can expect to see, and how to cope in both training and competition.
  • How human impairments can affect dressage training and the horse.
  • Contraindications and caution.

In relation to equine paces, the webinar will cover:

  • What the judges are looking for.
  • Different requirements for different grades.
  • Training horses realistically.

This session is open to all athletes, coaches, therapeutic riding centers, volunteers, officials and parents and eligible for professional coach development.

Registration is required. Please note this webinar will be offered in English only.
