Sunday, Aug. 17, Levinson will discuss “Elements of Centered Balanced Riding,” in which he will demonstrate and teach how lighter hands, a supple rider, better use of leg cues, aids and best seat mean a lighter, happier and better performing horse. He will also explore Equine Competitive Sports Psychology for developing winning strategies and great techniques when showing. Bridle-less riding will be offered for those interested.
