Riding at The Royal: Indoor Intimidation

After a summer of outdoor shows, moving indoors to a tournament as big as the Royal can be pretty unnerving, especially for a first-timer. Jill MacRae offers some tips for de-stressing and preparing yourself and your horse.

Improving your Stadium Jumping with Waylon Roberts

Event rider and trainer Waylon Roberts is a 2007 Canadian Team silver medalist, top North American at the 2011 London Olympic Test Event, and five-time Indoor Eventing champion at the Royal Winter Fair who trains and coaches out of Greenbrier Farm in Uxbridge, ON. He demonstrates these exercises aboard Vicky, a four-year-old mare owned by Al Shinton.

Dressage for ADHD Event Horses

Your event horse may be bold cross-country and a capable stadium jumper, but falls apart during dressage. He may get anxious or rebellious, spooky or distracted and tune you out completely.
