SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
CLINICS & SEMINARS
TRAIL RIDING & LEISURE
The IQHA season starts with a bang. For the first event of 2023, we welcome back Bob Mayhew for a Judging Seminar.
Participants will watch patterns and competitions with Bob and will learn what is correct and what is incorrect. Have you ever wanted to know how points and penalties are awarded? This seminar is for you.
Participants will also learn about scribing and how to scribe for a judge during competitions.
The event is open to all members. Please note that this is a non-ridden event. You do not need to own/bring a horse to take part.
Western Riding Clinic
Open to everyone. English/mainstream and western. No special tack or gear required.
This clinic will be a mix of groundwork and ridden work and is open to every level of rider, from beginners to more advanced riders. The clinic will be tailored to suit the level of riders that attend on the day. Bob will work with riders as a group but will also help riders individually if they are struggling with specific issues in their riding.
Riders are welcome to bring their own horse to the event.
Level 1 and 2 Instructor Assessments
Please note that tickets for the instructor assessments include the clinic with Bob Mayhew on the 25th
The IQHA is offering its members the chance to become an assistant instructor/instructor.
Open to western and English riders. English instructors: why not add western inspired horsemanship to your teaching toolbelt?
