Training Scales and their relationship to the functional anatomy of the horse with Dr Helen Davies (BAgSci (Hons). MAgrSc. BVSc. PhD)
For all riders, drivers and trainers of dressage, show and performance horses and recreational riders/drivers who are interested in life-long training of the horse. The seminar will cover the general background and relevance of training scales and
biomechanics as it relates to training scales. The seminar will consider both the Equitation Science Training Scale and German Training Scale.
Dr Davies is a veterinarian, teacher, and research scientist at the University of Melbourne, with a life-long interest in communication, posture, and movement, especially in horses and their riders. During the last 45 years she has gradually developed and tested a range of non-invasive ways to encourage improvements in communication, posture, and function, including in individual horses and riders that have congenital or acquired disabilities or damage. Dr Davies is highly active in equine research projects primarily aimed to maintain soundness in working horses. This seminar contributes to support this research (with part-proceeds also to Horse SA!)
