Tutoring Tuesday sponsored by Merck Animal Health
USPC
The Rider's Toolbox Webinar will be Tuesday April 28th, at 8pm Eastern Time
When riding and training your horse, you need to have many options to make adjustments to your ride. Training is a progressive system and as you pick a tool, you test it and possibly abandon it and pick another to achieve your goals. This webinar is aimed at Pony Club members certified C3 and up, especially pursuing upper level Traditional and Dressage certifications. In addition to helping with your training, it will give you more 'tools' to use in your certifications and riding unfamiliar horses.

Join this webinar by registering with your name and email address. FAQs about webinars can be found here and any questions about webinars can be sent to webinar@ponyclub.org.

About the Presenter
Trenna began eventing in 1974 with a Pony Club instructor as my teacher. In the early 1980s I organized Horse Trials and was the DC for the Whidbey Island Pony Club as well as instructor of the lower levels. Since then she has moved into Dressage riding through the FEI and coming up the levels to become a USEF Senior Dressage Judge. She is very involved in the USDF “L” Faculty who teach programs in dressage judging. Trenna has continued to coach Pony Club members and eventers in their dressage phase and several years ago, became a USPC National Examiner for the Dressage Specialty. I have enjoyed working with the great people involved with USPC in the development of the new Advanced USPC manual.
