I know by now you will all be aware of the latest introduction of a new National Lock Down. And while I’m sure we can all agree this is a necessary measure, it does unfortunately mean that once again we are going to have to cancel our forthcoming mentoring and clinics.
As before we are following the advice from the BRC:
Following the recent announcement of another national lockdown in England from Thursday 5 November until Wednesday 2 December, we are saddened to announce that the current interpretation is that all BRC activity, bar virtual activity, must cease during this time. For the avoidance of doubt, this includes all activities run under the BRC banner, including competitions, training, clinics and camps.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact either myself or one our committee members. We will do what we can to help or advise you.
We look forward to seeing you all again soon, until then, stay safe…
on behalf of your committee
Franklin Balls were developed in Germany by Dr Eric Franklin, originally to help sports people but they have now been developed to help Equestrians. I have attended a course to learn how these work and am now trained in their use. The balls are different sizes and shapes, either filled with air or water, which are used in different ways, for example under seat bones, thighs and armpits to help riders develop their balance, core strength, straightness and suppleness. They help identify areas riders need to work on, and also really show how the rider influences the horse’s way of going. We have found that horses become more forward, relaxed and straighter and riders become more ‘bodily aware’. It’s absolutely fascinating!
