101Re: [WestKingdomEQ] Equestrian track at Collegium?
- Jun 1, 2002Alessandro and I have been talking about my teaching a class on horse safety. He thinks that there would be enough interest (there is always a need when there are people around who have not had the chance to own their own horses and work with them continuously) for me to teach a class on this. I don't know if this is what Bethia was thinking of teaching.
Alessandro was also suggesting I teach a class on ground work. (Again possibly overlapping what Bethia was thinking of teaching.) We were thinking about trying to bring our 2 horses to help create interest and use as visual aids. :-)
Maybe we four should talk, and see what each is thinking of teaching so that we could both teach and make our classes of reasonable length. (Mine usually end up 4-8 hours, so I will need to figure out what I should be talking about -- one topic only -- and plan the class out so that I can cover the topic in one or two class periods.) :-)
Is Bethia on this list?

I was talking to Bethia the other night, and she is really excited about
equestrian activities. She has volunteered to teach a class on basic "Horse
how to/etiquette" at Collegium.
I was wondering if we could have a mini-equestrian track (maybe three
courses for an afternoon track) at Collegiun with the addition of...oh, say
a horse garb class (Genevieve? Did you want to make that El Cega
pattern?... :-) No pressure!)
This is a really new area to most of the populace, so anything goes as far
as what members of this list might teach a class on. Some ideas I had were:
- differences between english and western trained horses/riding
- Horse tack hands on/where to find horse gear cheap (Troxel helmets,etc.)
- making equestrian games equipment
Unfortunately, its the weekend before my wedding, so I can't attend
Collegium. Anyone interested in adding to Bethia's class?
