II Symposium for Equitacion Professionals
The II Symposium for technical riding was held from the 12th to 14th of November 2013 at the Somosaguas Riding School, under the direction of Luis FernÃ¡ndez Gil- Fournier. It was attended by professionals from throughout Spain.
In this second edition, participants received practical jumping lessons from Juan Antonio de Witt. Dressage from Luis Lucio Perez and eventing from Juan Queipo de Llano. Other theories covered, equine physiotherapy, nutrition, para equestrianism and sport horses were given by Mar Ruiz Echevarria Oriol, Marta Garcia Piqueres, Coby Bolger, Mercedes Jimenez Horwitz and Pedro Rey Alvarez.
This second symposium, organised by the Foundation for the Promotion of Equestrian Sport in collaboration with the Equestrian Federation of Madrid, seeks to strengthen the skills of professionals dedicated to the education and training of future riders which is considered essential by both institutions for maintaining continuous technical training.
The relationship and atmosphere between the audience and strong commitment from the Foundation for the Promotion of Equestrian Sport during these days pushed us to make a new date for 2014 making it a must for any equine professional wanting to improve his knowledge.
