Gerd Heuschmann at Derby College
30th & 31st March 2018

Gert Heuschmann

Following two successful clinics held last year, I am pleased to welcome back Gerd Herschmann during 2018.

Gerd is a professional trainer, rider and veterinarian who trained and taught at the German Riding School in Warendorf. His extensive study of classical training and biomechanics has developed his skill for training to enhance soundness as well as performance. His is the author of ‘Tug of War’ & ‘Balancing Act’.

There are opportunities to bring your horse for a lesson or to come just to watch how Gerd trains a variety of horses and riders.

Discussions during the clinic can be wide-ranging and depend on the horses and riders present. Topics often include questions such as:

  • What  is meant by ‘leg mover’ and back mover’?
  • Why is it important to understand these terms with respect to performance and soundness?

Spectator prices 30 (before 23 March) or 35 thereafter or on the door.
Contact me for price for lessons.

For further information regarding riding spaces and spectating contact me at: or on 078180 63222.

Further clinics are planned for later in the year.
