USDF brought our Region another excellent educational opportunity by way of Shannondale Farm! Scott Hassler and Willy Arts selected a talented,diverse group of horses ages 2-4 with their riders for demonstration of proper training techniques to promote high performance development of dressage athletes. Conformation, handling, longeing, and under saddle techniques were discussed and exampled for interactive auditors to learn. Willy Arts comes from a traditional Dutch system and Scott Hassler comes from a traditional German system. This partnership gave riders and auditors ample information to explore. Thanks to USDF for such an informative program!
