World renowned veterinarian, Bereiter (Master Trainer), and author Dr. Gerd Heuschmann will present a two-day symposium on the Biomechanics of Soundness. Dr. Heuschmann is based at the Warendorf Veterinary Clinic associated with the German National Riding School. A respected international lecturer, Dr. Heuschmann educates equestrians on how to make the sport better for the horse. A true horse lover and voice for the horse, Dr. Heuschmann boldly speaks about the damaging effects of incorrect training methods (especially hyperflexion!) employed by many competitive riders and trainers today.
