This clinic is to assist those preparing for their Rider 6 evaluation. Jill will guide each group through their warm up with constructive feedback. Each rider will ride the level 6 flat test then will have constructive feedback on improvements. Then the group will review and debrief together.

Clinician Bio: Jill Stedman is a dressage coach in Ontario, Canada. Jill was trained through lessons and clinics with Mark Williams, Lee Tubman, Cindy Ishoy, and Gillian Sutherland before she began training with her current coaches, Belinda Trussell, in 1995 and Jean Paul Paré in 2011. Under Belinda's tutelage, and with the use of former FEI-level mount Bastiaan, Jill successfully achieved her OEF Coach 2 Certification. Jill has remained active in the OEF coaching program and has been a Course Conductor (Examiner) in Ontario since 2000.Turn out of horse and rider at this level should be appropriate to the weather, however should be immaculate.Horse turnout for Rider Level 8 must be as what would be expected for a competition. Horse is to be braided (by the candidate) and must be trimmed (i.e. ears, muzzle, fetlocks and bridle path). Rider turnout – hunt coat and riding shirt are not required. Shirts however must be well fitted, have collars, sleeves and be tucked neatly into breeches. Riders should wear a belt and the belt should be visible. Breeches and tall boots or jodhpurs with jodhpur boots and knee strap may be worn. Wellfitted half chaps are acceptable. Boots should be polished. Conservative traditional attire is expected.Riders at Level 8 are competent with sound English equitation skills and are able to recognize “true” quality of movement. Riders are beginning to ride the horse with impulsion and engagement. They have the ability to achieve consistent bend and straightness as required and can demonstrate the ability to control the outside shoulder. They can demonstrate the achievement of bend by the correct use of the inside leg and outside rein. The horses should be consistently “round” at all paces. They are able to identify basic training problems and offer options for their correction.
