    Leonie Lang, Saturday, 1 September 2018

    Central Zone hosted the PCV State Workshop at Riddells Creek on Sat Sep 1 with about 30 coaches, officials, parents and senior riders in attendance.

    It was sunny at the start of the day and after Kate Wilson's welcome, the participants moved to the morning sessions. 

    Tetrathlon

    Kate Thompson explained the fundamentals of Tetrathlon and gave ideas of how to incorporate it into a rally. Some tried their hand using the laser pistols.

    In the afternoon, the wind blew up, clouds came over and the outside groups suffered a heavy shower of rain. but pony clubbers are a hardy lot - riders, coaches and parents and they kept going.

    Engaging Beginner Riders

    Sally Francis worked with some benner riders to demonstrate some innovative ideas for keeping lessons fun and interesting using poles.

    Horse Handling for Float Loading

    Norm Glenn demonstrated safe techniques for handling horses whilst loading for transport. (For those with a long memory in CZ, this is Nic Nac. He can still be a naughty litlle pony. Norm soon had his measure.)

    Feeding and Nutrition for Horses

    Meaghan Sutherland discussed current industry standards for horse nutrition and body conditioning. This lucky group stayed indoors for a slide show during the coldest weather.

    Nutrition session

    Central Zone would like to thank Kate Wilson for organising the informative sessions and Riddells Creek PC for providing a great venue and canteen with hot food throughout the day. Unfortunately, four seasons in one day was beyond our control.
