We cover a lot of ground in this interview, including points to consider when considering a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) freestyle design and questions to answer for yourself before planning your own freestyle!
Do you know about my Dressage Freestyle Books and Music?
Before committing to a particular musical style or theme for your freestyle, try out this series of musical downloads created by Ruth just for riding. (Most albums offer at least one free sample track! Check them out!) ruthhoganpoulsen.com/shop/#riding-music
To see it performed at Devon look on YouTube for Susanne Hamilton dressage. A really fun freestyle!
Thank you so much for this creation.. I love it so much 💕
Also thanks to Shannon Lee Dueck for her input in the choreography! (She kept pushing me to combinations I didn’t believe we where ready for but she was right)
We all had SO much fun making this! Love you Ruth you rock!!!!!💕
It is an honor to share this very special announcement with you! The new Jane Savoie Fund for Adult Amateurs has been established by Jane’s family and friends in memory of her lifelong love of horses and career as a trainer, teacher, author, and motivational speaker.
Jane was known around the world for her dedication to dressage, passionate help of amateur riders, and developing happy horses. Grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded from the Jane Savoie Fund to adult amateur riders of any age, who are training any breed of horse at 4th Level or Prix St. Georges, and who reflect Jane’s ethos of developing each horse to its potential.
Beth Baumert, TDF’s President and CEO, said, “I don’t remember a time when I didn’t know and love Jane Savoie. Maybe it’s been forever. And that’s how long we want Jane to be remembered—forever. Jane gave countless riders permission to be great, and she helped them get wherever they were headed. She helped backyard riders and she helped Olympians—each with the same degree of commitment. Now is the time for us to be committed to Jane. Please give to make the Jane Savoie Fund for Adult Amateurs great so that Jane’s influence will go on and on and on.”
