Sveltlana Gorski Biomechanics of Dressage Clinic!

Let’s connect to our body to better feel and understand our horses!

Come learn from Dressage for Fun’s Svetlana Gorski! Each day will include free lectures along with mounted lessons. Sign up for both days for maximum learning, or just come for one day. Either way, be prepared for a lot of learning! And hopefully some fun!

During the clinic, we will concentrate on clarifying the aids to ourselves and see how our horses respond. They will be the judge if Svetlana is wrong or right! We will also be asking “Why?” a lot. Why this way? Why does this happen when I do that? Why does my horse react this way? And so much more. Questions are encouraged!

Not only has Svetlana Gorski made, retrained, and competed through the highest levels of dressage, she has years of training in ballroom dancing which give her a broad understanding of coordination, body balance and fitness. Gorski has traveled extensively–Germany, Holland, Poland, Latvia, Brazil, Russia, Italy–working with some of the best horse trainers and horses around the world. She spent 3 years at the German Etoile Equestrian Academy, along with 2 years working for Henk Van Bergen and Peter Perlee in Holland. Karmic Run’s Meghan Truppner has been a longtime student of Gorski’s and credits her with giving her training the extra boost needed to earn her Silver Medal.

During this unmounted session, we will cover rhythm, breathing and relaxation of the rider. You will learn the correct hip movement for all three gaits, along with the coordination and rhythm needed for tempi changes and lateral work. We will also cover the hand-to-bit connection, discussing how much give is too much, but also where to release the pressure.
