Mic Rushen – Stepping Stones – Online Group Competition

Up to 3 riders per test (one video) £12 per person – minimum 2 people. Choose your test in the box below. Up to three riders can get together on a suitably mown grass oval track (whatever size you can manage) or in an arena if you prefer.

You can ride with other rider/s who are not being judged.  Please mention the class, that you are doing a FIEF competition test for comment and that your companion rider is not being judged in the coaching focus box.

If you wish your scores (individual and team, country or region) to be added to the Stepping Stones Leader board you must email shonastewart@aol.com before midnight on the last day of the month (August, September, October) that you wish your scores to be entered for.  They will appear on the Leader Board and will also count towards your GB Ranking (if you are a GB rider).

Stepping stones group competition is a cost effective way to help prepare riders for local and national competitions where more than one rider will be on the track at the same time and as a way to improve their gait and transition riding skills in a more structured way.  Each rider will receive judges comments on each gait, emailed to the paypal address unless other email addresses are supplied.  Group video feedback can also be arranged via Zoom if required, please email Mic for details.

Video should be taken from the centre of the track/arena.  Price includes one Tölt class or one Gait class for up to three riders riding at the same time.  Click on the links below the table  for full details of what is required for each class.

Performing the classes:

  • Treat A or C of your schooling area as the middle of the short side of the track for individual tests if you do not have access to an oval track.
  • Please make sure, if you are riding on grass, that you are safe – your horse may need studs if it’s slippery.
  • NB: Five Gait classes should only be ridden on an oval track or in an area of an equivalent size. A 20x40m arena is not safe for riding pace.
