We're very excited to be in the planning stages of a clinic we hope to hold in NOV 2017 with Herdis Reynisdottir who will be visiting Australia again.
Looking at focusing the clinic around the young Icelandic horse and rider with the aim to provide people with useful information and experience to set them up for a successful future together.
Bring your own horse or borrow one of ours.
Perfect for people with their own young icelandic looking for some guidance to get to the next stage and for anyone interested in maybe owning an icelandic in the future.
There will be demonstrations, theory and practical lessons where you can ask all those questions and get the help you (and your horse) needs.
Herdis ( Disa) is a very experienced horsewoman who has been a FEIF judge for many years, an icelandic horse trainer, a student then teacher at Holar ( the icelandic horse university in Iceland) as well as running clinics all over the world. Her relaxed and practical instructing style makes it easy to progress and learn quickly and she is open and easy to talk to.
So far we think a 2 day clinic with the possibility of extra lessons on the 3rd day might be a great way to really get the most from her visit. We'll keep updating details as we lock them in here and on our facebook page. Please feel free to contact me if you think you would like to attend.
We'll be looking at keeping costs to about $100 a day x 2 for full participation plus a lesson cost for the 3rd day. Spectators also very welcome to come and soak up all the info and socialize with us ( cost for spectators to be worked out per day)
Lots of accommodation available in Port Fairy ( only 15 mins drive away) and also looking at some group accommodation options closer to the farm to keep costs down for everyone.
Disa will also be in NSW at Megalong Valley Icelandics in NOV 2017 - so please keep in touch with their clinic plans on their website. Maybe you could also look at putting both the clinics into your calendar as its a fine opportunity to really engage with the one trainer in different settings - attend one then attend the other to really give yourself a chance to practice and fine tune what you've learnt.
Any suggestions for the clinic and topics etc are welcomed - feel free to drop me an email!
I'm so looking forward to it all! Wishing you all a very happy day and look forward to seeing you down at the farm some time soon! Warmest wishes from Wintery Yambuk - Amy
