Biomechanics Meets Training to Win
with Caroline Moore FBHS and Gillian Higgins
Join Caroline Moore (FBHS) and Gillian Higgins (Equine Anatomy Specialist) as they explore the importance of understanding how your performance is impacted by equine anatomy, in an effort to ensure you are training your horses correctly, with longevity in mind.
Through the seminar, Gillian presents videos illustrating the biomechanics of different movements from all 3 eventing phases and together they will discuss the key points that can be applied to riding and training. Caroline discusses her winning system and philosophy’s for training and how her ‘building blocks’ approach not only creates confident and happy horses - but also strong, sound horses produced with the future in mind.
This seminar includes:
Improving the gaits
The biomechanics of dressage movements and how to improve them.
Different head and neck positions
The biomechanics of jumping
Repetitive strain injury and how to avoid it
Galloping and how to structure fast work training.
The effect of terrain and tips for effective cross country riding.
Training exercises to develop strong foundations
Who is this for?
This on demand seminar is perfect for all riders wishing to get the best out of their horse as well as eventing trainers and coaches

Question and Answer Session
Caroline produced and rode horses up to 5* level, competing at Badminton, Burghley, Bramham and Blenheim, as well as overseas. In 2007 she took part in the Olympic test event in Hong Kong on Don Giovanni. In 2010 she moved fully into coaching.
Caroline, who is an Eventing Performance Coach, now focuses on coaching riders and other coaches to improve their skills, with the main aim to develop confidence and belief by building correct foundations.
She co-owned Allstar B, who was competed by Ros Canter. The pair first represented Great Britain at the 2017 European Championships in Strzegom, winning team gold and finishing fifth individually.
The following year, 2018, was even more successful. Ros and Allstar B placed third at Badminton before taking double gold at the World Equestrian Games in Tryon, making them the new World Champions.
A further team gold medal was won at the 2021 European Championships in Avenches.
