Five-Year-Old Competition Prep Part One


Linda Allen, FEI & USEF Judge and Olympic Course Designer, prepares Palo Blanco bred Warmbloods for their first trip to a competition venue. The two horses featured in this topic, very early five year olds, are graduating from the foundation work they were introduced to the previous year. Part one follows them on the first day of a two-day school and is a rehearsal of basic rideability and focus. All horses in the Palo Blanco program are allowed to develop on their own schedule with plenty of time back in the field incorporated with challenging, confidence-building experience in the ring. 

Running Time: 24 minutes and 30 seconds
