HOW: A former Parelli instructor, Glenn Stewart is a renowned and highly popular natural horsemanship clinician with a lifetime of skills that were recognized by Lefosse when they met during a stud farm tour last November on behalf of ABPSL (the pure-bred Lusitano breeding association in Brazil). Stewart will be honing his WE skills with the expert guidance of Benedito Torres de Macedo, an extensively awarded competitor and member of the Brazilian national team who finished as reserve champions at the 2002 WE World Championship. “Dito” is a highly respected rider and instructor in both Brazil and Portugal WHEN: The resulting WE project has evolved from nearly nine months of tripartite discussion and will be inaugurated in November 2008 with a course in Working Equitation using natural horsemanship training methods. In addition, a certificated WE judges’ course will be offered that is open to all interested parties. A flexible schedule allows participation in both the WE riding instruction and the judges’ course, and will run from November 15 to 22, 2008. There will also be a half-day equestrian photography workshop for anyone with a camera who wishes to participate. The week will conclude with a special Gala where rookie judges will have the opportunity to test their skills during a “live” Working Equitation competition, and also be invited to participate in a special WE competition to demonstrate their new-found skills.
