Before the show......
IRIDE helps students prepare for competition in a couple ways; our philosophy of training is to give the student tools and understanding to be an independent, thinking, compassionate rider. But there are also the aspects of mental preparation, strategy, and sportsmanship, as well as knowing and showing by the rules, filling out entries, and volunteering. Our planning and strategy meetings are designed to build the team and the support for our students through every aspect of competition. THIS SERVICE IS PART OF THE REGULAR STUDENT PROGRAM
At the competition....
While we stress independence in training and competing, there is great value in having "eyes on the ground" at the competitions, encouraging words to kick away the nerves, and an understanding ally while getting "in the zone". Competing in Dressage is just like any other sports endeavor--you and your horse are ATHLETES, and coaching is the support you need to give it your all. We are there for you. PRE-BOOKED PRICE IS $50.00 PER STUDENT PER SHOW DAY PLUS MILEAGE AND HOTEL ROOM FOR MARY (usually Friday and Saturday nights). IF MULTIPLE STUDENTS ARE COMPETING AT THE SAME SHOW, MILEAGE AND HOTEL ROOM CHARGES WILL BE SPLIT. COACHING BOOKED LESS THAN 48 HOURS BEFORE THE START OF THE SHOW IS $100.00 PER DAY, PLUS MILEAGE (AND HOTEL ROOM IF APPLICABLE).
