 Meet the hosts of the Jumping Instructors Programs!  We are getting so excited about the new Jumping Instructors webinar this week. We have been busy practicing... This past weekend we did a short video to promote what we are doing. Learning how to market is so important for each of us as professionals in the horse world. We started with graphics (artwork for the event) press releases and of course, social media. Join the new Jumping Instructors FB page to watch how we market these programs. Click on this link to watch the first video we did together to promote Jumping Instructors.

Attention Jumping Instructors!   New programs designed for riding instructors who want to focus on, or improve what they are doing in the horse business while coaching or competing over fences and on the flat.

The Jumping Instructors webinar will be hosted by Randi Thompson, founder of Horse and Rider Awareness and Paddy Downing-Nygard, USEF “R” Hunter/Jumper/Equitation Judge (25 years) It will be moderated by Laura Kelland-May Canadian Sr. Judge (hunter/jumper/equitation/hack) and USEF "R" Judge.

According to Ms. Thompson "The FREE Jumping Instructors Webinar is filled with information that we feel are important riding instructors who are doing business in the horse world.  Each program will feature topics that range from teaching techniques to business topics.
Already, the response to the Jumping Instructor Webinar has been great!  Over 130 people have registered and we have started the Jumping Instructors Facebook page. (https://www.facebook.com/jumpinginstructors)   We are looking forward to connecting more with everyone soon”

States Downing-Nygard “As a USDF "R" judge and instructor/trainer I have seen what happens in the horse business. I have watched professionals who have a hard time figuring out where they fit in the equine world.  I know that there are many topics I can add my knowledge and have teamed up with Randi Thompson to create the Jumping Instructor Programs.  It is a venue where we will be able to all learn from each other, join us.  

Topics include: 

"From the Judges Box"

Are you coaching riders who are competing over fences?  Now you can ask the judges what they are really seeing and what you need to know to win more blue ribbons.

"Teaching Rein Connection"
How should the rider hold the reins and where do they need to be positioned when going over the fences or on the flat?  Watch as Paddy and Randi demonstrate teaching techniques that you can use right away!   We will also talk about Pelham bits, what makes them different and what you need to know about how to use them.

"Horse Business 101"

Equine Liability Statues.  How do they affect your horse business?  If you think the Equine Statutes protect you from everything, you, like many other professional horse people, are wrong!   What steps do you need to take to protect your horse business legally?
