Training Session 3
Training 18th July (MA/PTV) in Knockraha
A glorious day set the scene for the MA and PTV training in Knockraha. While only a small group attended, they made the most of it. Once again split into two groups, where 3 did MA with Bastian and Megan, with Frances taking the PTV training groups to go through some of the days obstacles and a full walk of the course. Over at the MA Bastian started with some theory behind the collected canter and the fast walk needed for the phase. They then moved on to the practical side of the MA, each taking timed turns to canter up and walk down. While the theory behind it may seem straightforward and simple putting the theory into action is more difficult than it seems. The groups then switched, and Elaine took over from Frances for the PTV. We then broke for a quick socially distanced lunch. After lunch the stewards for the PTV course were sent out to their posts, basking in the glorious sunshine awaiting the arrival of the riders and trying their hands at amateur photography. The feedback from the riders was encouraging, boasting this training session another success. Them having both gained new insights into the MA and PTV and also enjoying their day out.
