Snakes and Ladders Series 1

September 7, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Introducing to you SBD Academy.

The SamanthaBrownDressage Academy aims to enable sustainable riding improvement across all levels and abilities for the committed rider.

The series is based upon the scales of training, which are rhythm, suppleness, Contact, impulsion, straightness and collection.

As a member of SBD Academy you become a part of a development and confidence building community. It requires commitment in order to develop your knowledge and understanding. We are offering an incremental programme to redress and address issues and to help you to progress your riding skills.

The first series is focused on pole work, using advanced pole work techniques to develop core strength for both horse and rider. Core strength is a pre-requisite in order to apply the scales of training correctly.

Series 1 has 4 sessions over a 4/5 week period. Each session is a form of progression that starts with:

Series 1- Snakes & Ladders
