Part 1/3 - News & videos from Jersey Fresh

Jersey Fresh was a show of ups and downs and mixed emotions. Sadly, Phillip Dutton had a fall on the cross-country course with Bailey Wick, in which the horse was fatally injured. On the other hand, we saw great successes from Boyd Martin who won the Jersey Fresh CIC*** with Belmont and Molly Rosin, finishing 7th in her first CIC*** with Havarah's Charly.
Here are a couple of videos from Boyd's cross-country CCI** and CCI*** rides.



On this new video, Boyd is testing the final prototype of an upcoming XC saddle pad. It will be in the market in the next few weeks.

Video Steffen Peters' clinic - LEVEL 3 horses

Enjoy the first two videos of this weekend's OADG clinic with World Dressage Champion Steffen Peters. ECOGOLD sponsored the clinic and all the riders had WitherCare Dressage saddle pads, specially made for the event.



OADG's Steffen Peters Clinic

It was a real pleasure to sponsor OADG's Steffen Peters clinic at the RCMP Arena in Ottawa this weekend . We were thrilled to be there, as were all the auditors & riders. It was a great opportunity for them to get one-on-one instruction from the current World Champion. We were surprised to see him get on almost all the horses. As he explained, it was easier for him to understand the horse from the saddle than from the ground. It was a real treat to see him in action and reveal his training secrets.


The riders received new WitherCare Dressage saddle pads and another one was presented to Steffen by John Da Silva, ECOGOLD's president, as a "welcome to Canada gift".

We will be posting some video of the clinic later this week.
