Succeed With Safer Cross Country Riding In 2013

Petplan Equine is pleased to bring once again cross country riders the ‘Petplan Equine Lucinda Green XC the Safe Way Clinics’ in 2013. The series of 11 clinics gives riders all over England the opportunity to be trained by and receive advice from former World and European champion, Olympic silver medallist and six times Badminton winner Lucinda Green MBE.

“The important message that I try to impart in these clinics is that cross country riding isn’t about sitting on a horse, going flat out,” explained Lucinda. “There is a science and an art to it, and as a rider your job is to do three things – keep the horse’s engine going, keep a good line into a fence ensuring the horse has focused on the fence in plenty of time and keep both your and your horse’s balance. A horse that thinks for himself and, in equal measure, listens to his rider is going to be a safe cross country horse.”

Dates and venues have been announced for the 2013 clinics that are taking place at 11 venues across the country between 27th February and 29th May, 2013. For further information on the ‘Petplan Equine Lucinda Green XC the Safe Way Clinics’ visit
