About the Event
We are delighted to have Trausti Þór Guðmundsson back again for a Figures Tests clinic and competition (formerly Tölt in Harmony). The Figures Tests aims to promote a harmonious way of riding Icelandic Horses.
The clinic will take place Friday, July 17 to the morning of Sunday, July 19. There are two lessons per day, with some theory as well, and one lesson on the last day. Lunch is included.
Trausti, an FT trainer with vast experience with the Icelandic Horse, will help horse and rider in all aspects of the Figures Tests training scale:
- Rhythm and beat (regularity and tempo)
- Suppleness (elasticity/lack of tension)
- Contact (acceptance of the bit and aids)
- Impulsion (increased energy from hindquarters)
- Straightness (equal bend on both reins)
- Collection (engagement and balance)
