    Details, details...

    Day one: Developing your flat warm-up for jumping and introducing basic gymnastics to improve your performance

    This first day will be tailored to the groups. Less experienced riders will learn how a proper flat warm-up can enhance their jump round.  More experienced riders will demonstrate their warm-up and get instruction on how to improve their flat program to enhance their jumping. 

    Day 2:  Jumping basic lines and course work

    Pony Club standards will be used to determine the gymnastics grid we will use; adaptations can be made to challenge those who are able with more involved grids.

    Proposed schedule: 
    9:00 - 10:30  group 1
    10:45-12:15 pm  group 2
    30 min. lunch
