ROBERT Murdy, FEI coach and Emmett Therapy Pract-itioner from Co. Cavan, facilitated a busy show jumping clinic at the Burn Equestrian Centre on Saturday, June 19. The sun shone strongly on the riders and their horses, as Robert put them through their paces.
The five classes, with a maximum of four riders in each class, were graded in line with the experience of the horse and rider, which ranged from young horses to the more experienced. The all-day appetizing catering was provided by Wynne Catering and was greatly appreciated by all.
The Burn Equestrian Centre, situated on the edge of Belfast, with its fabulous large outdoor arena, full set of show jumps and expansive parking was a splendid venue for the clinic.
The busy day was rounded off with Robert doing a demon-stration, performing the Emmett Technique Therapy on a horse which displayed muscle tightness. The benefits of the therapy include promoting biochemical efficiency and improving a horse’s performance.
The results were amazing and instant, which inspired many of the horse owners to invite Robert back to perform Emmett Technique Therapy on their horse.
The organiser would like to thank all the riders who participated in the clinic and Wynne, who provided the cater-ing.
A special thank you goes to Sarah Black, manager of the Burn Equestrian Centre and her staff for their backing and assistance, which enabled the clinic to take place.
