[RC] Clinic Topics - Ridecamp Guest

Please Reply to: ti tivers@xxxxxxx or ridecamp@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

I'd like to ask this group for opinions about major topics for the speakers. If 
I only picked 4 topics to cover, what should they be??  What  would you like 
to know more about now? What would you have liked to have learned when you 
first got started?


Nutrition and feed analysis?



Saddle fit?>

My suggestions:

Nutritional support for the equine endurance athlete. 

Basic exercise concepts for the endurance horse. (Desireable pysiological 
changes and how to make them happen. 
Fitness levels vs competition levels. 5 year generalized, periodized 
conditioning gameplan. Avoiding conditioning/competition injuries. The Big 
Picture--all the variables that must be under control as you move through the 
conditioning process.) 

Record keeping, conditioning/training journal. 

Other topics:

Shoeing, balancing, saddle fit, monitoring tools and how to use them, 
environmental factors (training/competing surfaces, climate/weather, stabling 
conditions, transport, handlers, basic horsemanship, etc.).
