****Qualified coach*** A few more spaces are now available *** BHS APC ACCREDITED COURSE: Andy Thomas (Chartered Physiotherapist) is currently the High Performance Human Science and Sports Medicine Advisor to the USA Equestrian Teams and Director of Eventphysio Ltd.

Prior to this he was the Lead Practitioner for Human Science and Sports Medicine to the British Equestrian Federation for 10 years. Andrew has attended 3 Olympic Games, 4 World Championships and 12 European Championships.

He is the developer of TESTT (Thomas Equestrian Symmetry Types and Tests) a system of assessing imbalances and weaknesses in equestrian riders. He provides a unique insight into the management of the human equestrian athlete.

Andy has a particular interest working closely with coaches to help improve symmetry in the developing rider and in competition athletes to maximise performance.

This coach education session is aimed at developing the knowledge of assymetries and imbalances commonly seen in riders what they are, how they occur, what they affect and fundamentally where to seek help in dealing with them.

Many coaches often find that they may reach a point with a rider where they cannot progress due to the physical ability of the rider this occurs at all levels. Commonly this “progression block” is caused by developing or long standing assymetries weaknesses and imbalances.

During the session Andy will explain the theories behind how assymetries and imbalances develop what they look like whilst riding and also what you can see off a horse. He will also discuss the role of exercises off the horses but also what coaches can do on the horse to help create a more symmetrical rider.

This will be a lecture demo type session where riders are assessed on and off horse observing flat work and jumping.
