2014 HDS Symposium
The Houston Dressage Society is pleased to announce the 2014 HDS Symposium on April 12 and 13, 2014. The Symposium will be held at Isabella Farms. The Symposium will be led by Anne Gribbons and Christine Traurig.
Anne Gribbons will serve as our “judge’s perspective” for the symposium. Anne has trained numerous horses to grand prix and competed very successfully internationally for many years. In 2006, she was named” Horse Person of the Year” by the Chronicle of the Horse. She was also nominated by the FEI Dressage committee for a promotion to an Olympic or 5-star Judge. From 2010 to 2012, Anne served as the USET Technical advisor and US dressage coach. Anne was recently honored by being inducted into the USDF Hall of Fame at the December 2013 Annual Convention. Anne brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the HDS Symposium.
Christine Traurig will lead the training portion of the symposium. Christine is one of the most esteemed and sought after trainers in the US. She represented the US Dressage team at the Sydney Olympics on Etienne, where the US earned a bronze medal. She has continued to excel at training and teaching throughout the US. Her philosophy is in the classical, systematic development of the horse and rider while working towards maximizing the horse’s potential. She has been described as, “unique in how she challenges horses and riders to bring out the very best in them while remaining horse friendly”.
The symposium will have 2 horse/riders at each level. The test movements, training goals and common challenges of each level will be shown and discussed with emphasis being placed on teaching for the auditors. It will be an amazing learning opportunity for both the horse/rider teams and the auditors! There will be question/answer sessions and explanations throughout the day.
