Mette Rosencrantz Clinic Aug 6/7 2011______

Hello Dressage Niagara members.  We are in the process of putting together another great clinic opportunity with Mette Rosencrantz and would appreciate feedback from everyone (pro or con) so that we can make the decision whether to move forward.

The club has applied for Dressage Canada Levy Funding.  We are awaiting a response as to whether we will receive it or not.  Below are clinic participation costs based on NO FUNDING being received, this is what the clinic fees were last year.  If we do receive the funding, costs will be much lower, but in order to move the clinic forward, we need to go ahead based on the fees below.  We are in a position where we need to book Mette’s flight asap.

Please let us know if you are interested in riding or auditing based on the numbers below.  We are hoping that funding will come through, which will be a bonus for all!!!

RIDER FEE (45 minute lesson): $150 for Dressage Niagara members*                                                                                              $200 for non-members                 

AUDITOR FEE:    $35 for Dressage Niagara members*                                                                                          $45 for non-members                                      

*DN Membership as of May 1st, 2011                                                                                                            

This year we would like the clinic to run TWO Days instead of ONE, so please let us know which you would be interested in.   Please respond as soon as possible so we can confirm with Mette!

About Mette ______

Mette Rosencrantz has been based at Mill Creek since 1992 and offers the highest quality Dressage training. Mette is from Sweden where she was twice a member of the Swedish National Dressage Team.  She was the youngest rider ever allowed to enter Strömsholm, Sweden’s prestigious school for instructors, and eventually became the head dressage instructor there in

1980.  She also has a University degree in Physical Education instruction. Mette’s teaching skills are highly sought-after; top Dressage riders from across Southern California often trailer their horses to Mill Creek just to take lessons with her. Mette’s expertise is also in great demand across the country, so she is often invited to teach Dressage Clinics, Symposia and Dressage Expos at other riding facilities throughout the United States and Canada.

Mette has shown at the Grand Prix Level on several horses and most recently on Basquewille, who won the Grand Prix Invitational at the World Cup in 2007. Mette also has several up and coming horses, such as Taison, who is scoring in the mid-70s the Intermediare II Level and will be moving up to Grand Prix in 2011. She also has Finally, an international quality horse, who was Champion Intermediare Freestyle at the USEF Regional Finals in 2010; Taison was Reserve Champion. Both horses placed well in all of their classes at the Regionals and both qualified for and competed in the 2010 Dressage Festival of Champions: the USEF Finals in Gladstone, New Jersey. Mette’s goal is to ride in the Pan American Games in 2011 and the London Olympics in 2012. 

Mette has riders and horses in training at all Dressage levels and she believes that establishing a good foundation is essential to creating the best riders and that there are no quick fixes. When riders come to her with problems, she will try to discover the reason why the problems are occurring; she treats the cause rather than just the symptom. Mette also understands that riders tend to only want to do what they are good at, rather than challenge themselves to do the things that are difficult for them. Mette works with each of her students to build up their riding knowledge base, which enables them to grow in confidence.

Mette conducts clinics nationally and internationally throughout the year. Clinics can also be customized, but they typically last two days. During the clinic, Mette works on short term goals with the students, but also gives them long term goals to work on.  Mette will teach both private and semi-private lessons.

Clinic Participant Feedback from last year:

 

“Regardless of your level, she (Mette) has an uncanny ability to immediately zero in on the training holes in the rider and the horse, correct them and move you ahead.  She is a great clinician for auditors, providing lots of comments with lots of humor!   If she knows your coach is there she will direct comments/suggestions to her.  I have an inexperienced horse with some training level issues but Mette certainly helped me improve, particularly my contact.  Joanne (my coach) and I still work on things Mette identified and use tips she provided during my session or Joanne's.”  Jane Langdon

Calling all show riders!

As you will have heard, the Niagara Regional Exhibition will be the site for all four Dressage Niagara Bronze/Silver Shows this year. Since the Fairgrounds – including the bleachers – can be a little overwhelming at first glance, Dressage Niagara is pleased to announce a Practice Schooling Session at the Fairgrounds on Saturday, May 15, 2010 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.

It’s a great opportunity for you and your horse to become familiar with the show grounds and school without the pressures of a show. Or simply come and ride away from your home turf.

Location: Niagara Regional Exhibition, 1100 Niagara St, Welland
There is lots of room for trailer parking.

Cost: Free for Dressage Niagara members, $10 for non-members

Required: Proof of OEF Membership and a current Negative Coggins test

Register: By end of day Wednesday, May 12

To Register: email dressageniagara@live.ca.

Please note: all riders must check-in and receive a schooling number before mounting their horses at the Fairgrounds. Remember to bring a photocopy of your OEF membership and your Negative Coggins test.

Your Board of Directors

Dressage NIagara Presents:

Learn to Ride A Freestyle Clinic
with Margie Feduck
Classroom Session - Sunday, April 11 (1:30 – 4:30 pm)
4783 2nd Concession Rd, Port Colborne




Have you ever wanted to dance with your horse? Prepare a musical Freestyle but don’t know where to start? Margie Feduck, music instructor & dressage rider, has the answers!
Margie began riding in South Africa then moved to New Zealand to train with Harry Boldt, for many years the German Olympic coach. She also trained with Richard Weiss in the Alexander technique and has worked with Pat Parelli. Margie has created many musical rides and quadrilles with up to 60 horses.
Format of the clinic: Margie will discuss styles of music, how to match the beat of the music to your horse, how this will change as the horse moves up the levels, and how to incorporate a metronome into the music selection. She has a video library of musical rides and will have a selection of demonstration rides to view.
Cost: $35 for Dressage Niagara members, $45 non-members
To Register: email dressageniagara@live.ca
