New! C.O.R.E. Rider Clinic!

One of Mythic Landing’s clients, Playland Farm, is doing something for the first time that we are really excited about and want to share! They are hosting a C.O.R.E. Rider clinic on Saturday, March 22nd.  C.O.R.E. Rider is a program that Playland’s owner and resident trainer, Glenda Player, has been working towards for many years now, including multiple trips to Bad Tolz, Germany each year for proper certification.

So, you may be wondering, what exactly is C.O.R.E. Rider? CORE Rider is an acronym for Centered, Organized, Responsive, Effective riding. Through this method one learns how to use aids in a clearer, more organized and effective manner, thus developing a responsive, balanced horse. The method assists in learning a clearer sense of awareness of one’s own movements and use of self. In the process, the method promotes ease of movement, coordination, and flexibility. At the heart of the CORE Rider method is teaching oneself a greater awareness of his/her own movement. CORE Riding is about learning stability and balance through alignment.

The clinic will be broken up into two parts: an un-mounted group session and then mounted small group lessons afterwards. This format allows for riders to work on themselves and their body in the morning session without having to worry about their horse. Then, once they have the basics down, they will take what they learn in the morning and apply it while mounted in the small group riding lesson.
