Intelligent Riders’ Retreat

19-22 June 2018
Willinga Park, Bawley Point NSW

Regular lessons with your instructor are essential, but do you crave a deeper understanding of your sport?

Brett Parbery and his team believe the learning that happens OFF the horse, is as important as the lessons that take place in the saddle.

As a rider, you need a solid training system to follow at home or at a competition, and a great strategy to help you master your mindset and work towards achieving your dressage dreams.

Brett Parbery’s Intelligent Riders’ Retreat is an in-depth three days and nights of learning, and an opportunity to spend time in a small group setting (with a maximum 12 people), with one of Australia’s most successful dressage teams.

You’ll have an access-all-areas pass to the Parbery stables at Willinga Park, and see first-hand how the horses and training schedules are managed.

Guests will be invited to submit a riding video, and complete a questionnaire prior to the retreat, to allow the program to be customised for each rider’s unique challenges.
