While the top hunter/jumper riders have been soaking up the knowledge from George Morris, our eventing stars of the future have spent a few days in Ocala with head coach David O’Connor.  The Eventing 18 Advancing Athletes (riders 18 and under) training sessions have covered two days of flatwork, a day of jumping, and unmounted lectures on stable management, theory, course design, and veterinary care.   The sessions are scheduled to wrap up today with some cross-country schooling.  [USEA Announcement]

As you can see, knowing the training scale (and push up technique!) is essential!  Thanks to Joanie Morris for the video!
