Dressage, Biomechanics and Bodywork, a Collaborative Clinic with Jec Ballou and Jim Masterson

What is better than taking your horse to see one amazing equine clinician?  Taking your horse to see TWO!

Join us in Watsonville, CA for our first ever collaborative clinic with internationally acclaimed Dressage Trainer and Author, Jec Ballou and Jim Masterson.

It will be a chance to ride with and witness Jec and Jim co-teaching, helping horse and rider review areas of their horse’s performance from both a training as well as a biomechanics perspective.

Ride with the best!  Each horse and rider combination will have a 45 minute evaluation lesson with Jim Masterson and Jec Ballou, followed by bodywork done on your horse by Jim Masterson. On the following day, a 45 minute lesson with Jec Ballou to see biodynamic changes in the horse from bodywork and the rider’s work the previous day.

Jec Ballou: 

Widely appreciated as the author of best-selling 101 Dressage Exercises for Horse and Rider, Jec’s aim is to meet what she sees as an enormous need within the industry for usable and clear information that improves each horse’s athleticism. 101 Dressage remains one of the top sellers of all equine instruction books and has been translated to four foreign languages. It was endorsed by the United States Dressage Federation as being one of the most essential books for dressage enthusiasts to own.

When she published the book Equine Fitness, the American Horse Publications awards immediately named it the second best of all horse-related books for that year. Jec has educated about equine fitness, cross-training programs, and correcting movement dysfunction at expos around the country including Equine Affaire, Western States Horse Expo, Mid-West Horse Fair, Mane Event, and the Dressage Radio Show. Jec contributes regularly to Dressage Today, Horse Illustrated, Canadian Horse Journal, and Eclectic Horseman magazine.
