USEF High Performance Training Session

Earlier this week David O’Connor was here in Aiken for a couple of days, working with some of the advanced horses in the USEF Eventing High Performance Training Session. It was good getting some of the big time horses in front of David’s eyes in preparation for the spring campaign. Monday and Tuesday he worked us on the flat at Stable View with the goal of improving the balance of the horses in their gaits, and he wanted me to change a few things in my position. I’m trying to sit in a little more, especially in the canter. On Wednesday we went cross country schooling at Gibbes Farm with Steady Eddie and SBF Cortez, working on technicalities and a few small adjustments in my position that improved the way both horses were jumping their fences.
