Bedford, NY – For the 17th consecutive year, the annual Dressage4Kids’ Weekend Equestrian Program is featuring a mix of presentations and active sessions of interest to all ages, and disciplines of riding. Experts bring the latest information on many subjects that affect horses, their training, and health, so anyone interested in horses and increasing their equine knowledge will really enjoy the weekend. The event will be held on January 26-27, 2019 at Chase Collegiate School in Waterbury, Connecticut, using an additional building on the campus to take advantage of larger classrooms, all of which will be ADA accessible as they are all on the first floor.

Several ‘tracks’ are being offered so that horse enthusiasts can learn about what interests them most. These vary from USEF “S” Judge Margaret Freeman explaining and discussing the new USEF/USDF Tests for 2019, plus the Intructors/Trainers Track, which offers professionals the chance to exchange thoughts and gather ideas on teaching from top instructors. On Sunday, in addition to the Judges Forum, a track focused on Eventing will be offered. On both days, sessions on Horsemastership will cover important basics of horse care and riding for those, youth or adult, who want to learn more. Additionally, there will be a number of speakers presenting on a wide range of topics including veterinary care, training theory, drawing classes, dealing with equine emergencies, and keeping a positive mindset when riding/competing—a range of choices for all interests.
