Catherine Haddad teaches a Master Class with four different horses at different stages of training, including riding her own GP partner, Winyamaro.
Catherine Haddad presents a Master Class on Communication With the Horse sponsored by the Potomac Valley Dressage Association. She has brought a 4,5, and 8 year old and rides Winyamaro, her Grand Prix horse, as demo horses for the clinic. The session begins by Catherine explaining her philosophy of training, and they start the ridden demonstration with a four year old mare. The first thing she looks for is for the horse to go forward, and then to to step towards the bridle with her hind legs rather than worry about the perfect frame. Rhythm is the next concern.
