Yogi Breisner Lessons
On Wednesday, four of our young riders (Emily, Chelsie, Hannah, Steven) and horses (Happy Birthday, Thankyouverymuch, Hazely, Rich Pursuit) were put through their paces by one of the top horsemen on the planet, British Olympic Eventing Performance Manager, Yogi Breisner. The initiative was delivered via the British Horseracing Authority and the Northern Racing College, so thank you to Sam Trainor for putting this together.
With the Olympics not far away, Yogi is a very busy man so this was a scarce opportunity to learn from such an experienced instructor. After a shaky start the horses and riders began to find a nice rhythm and by the end of the lesson two horses that had never schooled were jumping 2 feet high poles! Yogi put on a fantastic lesson and i’m not sure who learnt more, the riders or the horses, however i am sure both Hannah and Chelsie now understand the phrase ‘ride long, live long’.
