· 11:30 am - 12:30pm - Educational Seminar on Therapeutic
and Corrective Shoeing
There is an old axiom among horsepeople which says, "No Hoof,
No Horse!" Everyone in the equine world realizes how important
soundness is for a horse and the Farrier Department at New Bolton
Center, headed by Rob Sigafoos and his assistant, Laura Florence,
is on the cutting edge of advances and new techniques to help our
equine partners stay sound and healthy. They will share their knowledge
of these new advances and their research will be the recipient of
any funds raised at the Open House in 2003.
1:00 pm - 4:00pm - "Dressage With the Masters"
Some Highlights of the Performance Featuring International Trainers
and Riders Include:
Bo Jenå, world-renowned expert on training horses in long
reins, will demonstrate this art with an F.E.I. level dressage horse.
He will also demonstrate how to show the extended trot while running
beside a horse. Mr. Jenå is director of dressage at Flyinge,
the National Stud of Sweden. He is also a Grand Prix trainer, competitor
and judge as well as a member of the International Trainers Club.
Alex Chterba, former head coach at the Olympic Training Center in
Moscow, will demonstrate the art of working a horse in hand. Using
his vast knowledge and experience, he will show a horse working
in high collection (piaffe and passage.) Mr. Chterba has trained
horses and riders for international competition, including the Olympic
games. He has coached Olympic riders both in Russia and the USA.
Domagala, of Poland, and Jaime Topinka, an apprentice trainer at
Los Alamos Dressage Center, will show a Pas de Deux, where dressage
horses perform in mirror images of each other. However, this pair
will perform a very unique musical Pas de Deux over fences, mounted
on offspring of L.A. Baltic Inspiration.
Basselini, apprentice trainer at Los Alamos Dressage Center, and
USDF Bronze and Silver Medallist, will focus lime light on the Swedish
Warmblood stallion, L. A. Baltic Sunrise, who will make his debut
at the Grand Prix level in 2003. Lisa and L. A. Baltic Sunrise will
perform a musical freestyle, known as a "kur", at the
Grand Prix level of dressage.
Baltic Inspiration, a Swedish Warmblood Grand Prix jumper and FEI
Level dressage stallion, will once again delight the audience with
his extraordinary talent and zest for free jumping over very big
