The Rock-itt : February 2011
By Rachel Smith Photos by Rachel Smith at www.furdography.com.au Visit www.northsideridingclub.org.au for more information A life with horses is a life of learning True horse people accept that you can never know it all when it comes to developing our equine partnerships. There can never be enough opportunities to attend seminars, ride in clinics, read books, watch DVDs or have lessons with others who have more knowledge and more experiences than yourself. 2011 has begun with a multitude of learning opportunities that many local riders have been privileged enough to participate in. With the festive season still lingering on for many, the Sydney International Eventing committee dusted off their volunteer hats to organise a cross country clinic with some of NSW best Eventer coaches on the world famous Sydney Olympic course. Held on 15 and 16 January, the clinic catered for nearly 200 riders under the instruction of 11 coaches. Local Eventers Jill Severn, Anwen Keeling, Eva Rasmussen, Lauren Seeley, Helen Webster and Ruth Franklin were joined by many of other Northside Riding Club riders at the clinic. Following this, the legendary US show jumper George Morris conducted a clinic at Sydney International Equestrian Centre and also at the Roycroft's property at Mt White from 14-16 January. The NSW Institute of Sport supported the clinics, providing Australian riders with the chance to learn from one of the world's best.
