    Conditioning for Soundness and Performance with Jec Ballou

    A USDF NEI Event Presented by CTDS with support from USDF, The Dressage Foundation, and Rolling Ridge Stables

    Learn how to improve performance and prevent injury with Jec Ballou in this unique symposium experience.  Learn why and how what you are doing works.

    The symposium format will consist of 1 hour small group lessons and a very limited number of private lessons.  Saturday will Jec will also give a presentation and on Sunday Kelly Jefferson, Certified Masterson Method Practitioner  and Instructor will give a presentation and demo.

    Jec’s clinics offer a calm, positive environment where you will learn both how to do specific moves but more importantly, you’ll also learn why to include this in your equine’s fitness plan.

    Auditors are welcome!  Bring a chair! 



    Jec was raised in a horse training family in Vermont, studied dressage throughout Europe, and eventually settled in California. About 15 years ago, she realized that most of the problems riders struggled with stemmed from their horses not using their bodies well. They lacked strength or coordination, they had muscle imbalances, they were stiff, and so on. Meanwhile, horse training had become too specialized and way too complicated.

    We needed simple, straightforward tools to help horses use their bodies optimally.

    This prompted me to write my first book in 2005, 101 Dressage Exercises for Horse and Rider, which was endorsed by the United States Dressage Federation as critical for every rider to own. 

    Three other books followed, all of which have been translated into foreign languages and widely trusted around the world for helping horses regain freedom of movement, an enjoyment of exercise, and strong bodies.

    Today, she works with students and their equine partners across the globe through her publications, customized fitness plans, online courses, and in-person clinics
