The Drive Two + km of trails through evergreen forest & around fields, one or two water crossings. A bridge is under construction. Sections of the trail are challenging and fun and take thought and careful maneouvering. Everything is optional. Drivers will be driven around and given the option to walk any of the trails they wish. Cones & dressage ring will be set up for any who wish to practice.
Clinic participants take vitals before harnessing and while their equine is at rest. Assistance available. At one or two locations along the trails, drivers stop at check point/s and take pulse & respiration. This will be recorded by the volunteer at the check point. Assistance available at check point. Driver will then know what speed they are to continue at. Pulse, respiration & other vitals to be taken & recorded at the end. This will determine if equine can be put away or must be walked longer.
Each driver will be given all their respective sheets so they can review the level of fitness their equine has and be given handouts on Interval Training & Vitals. Bring a horse thermometer (the ones you can tie a string on) so you can fully participate – thermometer is ‘NOT SUPPLIED’.
The course can be driven as often as driver wishes.
Lunch Bring lunch & eat when it fits in for you. (pizza is available 2 miles up the road – I believe they will deliver)
