Palm Partnership Training Hosts Western Dressage Week March 11-17 in Ocala, FL
Lynn Palm and Cyril Pittion-Rossillon offer Western Dressage training for horse and rider at their Fox Grove Farm in Ocala, FL throughout the year. March 11-17 is a week devoted to this fastest growing new discipline. Palm’s and Pittion-Rossillon’s ultimate goal is to develop willing horses and happy riders! “That is exactly what the beautiful progression of dressage does for the horse and rider”, says Palm.
The Palm Partnership Training fundamentals follow the same logical progression as that of classical dressage, or more recently accepted, western dressage. This training, and all Palm Partnership Training events, are for all levels of riders and all breeds of horses. The rider and willing, happy horse become a harmonious pair beginning with proper rider’s form, followed by natural aids communication, then studying horse’s natural balance and control of that balance. This progression allows the rider to gain more understanding of the horse’s natural behavior, anatomy and positive control whether competing in a western dressage test or cross training for other western disciplines or for those riding down the trail.
The Western Dressage Week begins March 11 with a 4 day all inclusive clinic at the beautiful Fox Grove Farm in Ocala. Sunday morning riders can test their skills in the first in a series of five Western Dressage Association of Florida qualified shows. Monday and Tuesday, March 16-17 brings the Discover Western Dressage Symposium which is 2 days of classroom sessions and live demonstrations designed for the professional Judge, Trainer, Coach and Competitor. The Symposium is hosted by the Western Dressage Association of Florida and Palm Partnership Training.
Clinic riders and their horses can take advantage of the all-inclusive package with 4 days of instruction, convenient, on-site lodging, healthy meals prepared by Lynn, plush stabling and fun evening activities. Riders can plan an entire week of training with all 3 events, or participate in one or two.
