The College of Agriculture, Food and Rural Enterprise, (CAFRE) and The British Horse Society Ireland are hosting a Biomechanics day on Monday 5th September 2016, 9.30am – 3.30pm at Laurel View Equestrian Centre, Templepatrick. Centaur Biomechanics helps horses and riders of all levels improve their riding and horse’s way of going. The course will highlight methods to identify horse and rider issues and suggest options for improvement. With the use of high speed video cameras (capturing 20 x faster than the human eye), Visualise training jackets and Quintic software, the rider's position and horse's way of going will be constructively analysed.
