Dressage display and anatomy presentation for local horse owners

Gillian Higgins and her horse Freddie Fox

The region’s horse owners and enthusiasts were treated to displays and presentations by equestrian experts at an event in Leicestershire last month (May). Hosted by the rural department from Market Harborough estate agency and chartered surveyors Andrew Granger & Co, the event was attended by around 50 guests who watched lectures and a dressage performance at the indoor ménage at Somerby Livery Centre in Melton Mowbray.

Designed to inform horse enthusiasts about equine movement and offer advice on improving their horse’s performance, the event included a lecture from Gillian Higgins of Horses Inside Out (www.horsesinsideout.com). Gillian gave a lecture about the skeletal structure of the horse, with the assistance of her own horse, Freddie Fox. By painting the skeletal structure on one side of the horse and the position of the major muscles on the other, Gillian was able to demonstrate equine anatomy to the audience and offer a better understanding of how to reduce the risk of injury to rider and horse and improve performance.

To conclude the afternoon, guests were treated to a dressage display and talk by Peter Tomlinson of Professional Dressage. Peter spoke on the history of dressage, with Jo Hammond on her horse Solo demonstrating grand prix dressage set to music.

“The event went really well, and Gillian’s unique lecture helped bring the subject to life,” comments Elizabeth Lewin, chartered surveyor at Andrew Granger & Co. “The day was rounded off by an impressive dressage performance from Jo and Solo, which the audience really enjoyed.”

The event was organised to further strengthen and promote Andrew Granger & Co’s presence within the equestrian property market across Leicestershire and Rutland.  For advice and enquires regarding equestrian property, contact Andrew Granger & Co’s rural department on 01509 243720 or visit www.andrewgranger.co.uk.
