ODS Adult Amateur Workshop With Judge Debbie Riehl-Rodriguez

This is a combination clinic and test riding workshop with Debbie Riehl-Rodriguez, licensed FEI C/3* Judge, FEI Young Horse 3*, “S” Judge, Freestyle and Young Horse Judge as well as an instructor.

Have you ever wondered what the judge actually sees? What might be most important to them in a test at a certain level? How you can improve a movement and flow into the next one? How to show off you and your horse’s best to the judge? How to show movements that aren’t the easiest for you?

Demo riders will show the current tests up the levels, and participants will have the opportunity to comment and ask Debbie questions. Debbie will give her insight on common mistakes within the tests, how to improve this particular rider/horse combination, as well as “score” the test and provide comments.
