Understanding and Assessing Your Horse's Movement
The Biomechanics of Walk
Understanding and Assessing Your Horse's Movement Part 1
7.30pm (GMT) Wednesday 1st February 2023
Walk is a superb exercise for warm up, rehabilitation and strengthening as well as correcting straightness issues. Presented with Gillian’s usual flair and enthusiasm, this webinar will look in detail at the benefits and biomechanics of walk. We will study the difference between different types of walk from collected to extended and the Spanish walk to free walk on a long rein.
This webinar will be illustrated with high-definition slow motion videos with Gillian’s signature anatomically painted horses, with views from above on a treadmill as well as from in front and behind in addition to the traditional side view. We will study problems in the walk from irregularities to asymmetry and straightness issues.
Gillian will also suggest techniques and exercises to improve this gait and offer her top tips for improving the walk and how to gain higher marks in your dressage tests. This webinar will give you the tools to accurately assess the walk.
This webinar is perfect for riders, coaches, therapists and saddlery professionals - in fact anyone wishing to improve their horse’s walk.
Ticket sales close at 6pm on 1st February 2023.
The Biomechanics of Trot
Understanding and Assessing Your Horse's Movement Part 2
7.30pm (GMT) Wednesday 1st March 2023
Trot is a symmetrical gait, which makes it great for assessing soundness. This webinar will look in detail at the biomechanics of trot and study the difference between different types of trot from collected to extended. We will also look at variations and problems within the gait including lameness, diagonal dissociation, asymmetry, and straightness issues.
This topic will be illustrated using high-definition slow motion videos and Gillian’s signature anatomically painted horses. We’ll look at the horse from above on a treadmill, as well as from in front and behind, and the traditional side view to truly analyse the gait and movement through the whole body.
We’ll discuss techniques and exercises to improve the expression and cadence of the trot – plus, Gillian will give her top tips for riding the trot in harmony and how to up your scores in the dressage arena. After watching this webinar you’ll have the tools to accurately assess and improve your horse’s trot.
Whether you’re a rider, coach, therapist or saddlery professional this webinar is for you.

The Biomechanics of Canter
Understanding and Assessing Your Horse's Movement Part 3
7.30pm (BST) Wednesday 5th April 2023
As a forward and asymmetrical gait canter is effective at mobilising the back and warming up your horse. This webinar will look at the biomechanics of this pace and the differences between collected to extended canter. We’ll also look at variations and problems within this pace including gait irregularities, asymmetries, diagonal dissociation, bucking, four-time canter and the lateral canter.
This subject will be illustrated using high-definition slow motion videos of Gillian’s signature anatomically painted horses. We’ll study this pace in detail with views from above as well as from in front and behind to truly analyse the gait and movement through the horse’s whole body. Gillian will suggest techniques and exercises to improve the quality of the canter, and top tips for upping your scores in the dressage arena.
This webinar is perfect for anyone wishing to improve their horse’s canter.
Ticket sales close at 6pm on 5th April 2023.
