How do I prepare myself optimally at the show for the next test? This is the focus of the CHIO Aachen CAMPUS seminar on March 18, 2022 – and that applies for both the theory and the practical part. Initially, Matthias Bojer from the Institute for Outdoor Sports at the German Sports University in Cologne, will convey basic knowledge from the field of sports and training science. The graduate sports scientist will speak about the latest cognitions of modern training for the horse and rider.
Subsequently, together with his riding pupils, Lars Meyer zu Bexten, one of the most famous and most successful jumping trainers worldwide, will demonstrate how in his opinion one should warm-up for a competition optimally using practical examples. Of course, the participants can pose questions and discuss individual problems at all times and these will then be visualised in a practical manner. It is not possible to participate with own horses.
Participants with a valid trainer's licence can have the seminar credited as a further education measure with 8 learning units (profile 1) (coordinated with the Rhineland Equestrian Sports Association e.V.).
Personal members of the FN receive a discount and can participate for 25 Euros.
