Max 6 riders.
More information :-
Times will be allocated for the whole event i.e for warm-up and for the dancing to music – 20mins warm-up, then 30 mins sole use of 40×20 arena, to ” dance ” with your horse.
Please bring all music on CDs – any kind you wish, I have used pop music and film score music – that you think may suit your horse’s paces at walk, trot & canter. Someone will be on hand to play/stop and re-start the music as and when necessary in your schooling session, so you get an idea of what works best for your horse.
See video on our fb page of a rider’s first attempt at DTM, great fun and certainly less stressful than pure dressage.
Entry on line via website North Wiltshire Saddle Club with entry fee, to validate entry, bacs payment to NWSC – members £12 – non-members £14.
