Champion Taddy teaches showjumping science

Six-time state showjumping champion, Taddy McLean, has once again passed on his knowledge and expertise to local riders.

Hosted by the Two Wells Equestrian and Pony Club in Lewiston, the LNZ (Lower North Zone) Pony Club event on Saturday May 7 attracted widespread interest, with riders from varying pony clubs taking part in small group, hour-long coaching sessions with Taddy, who has been holding clinics at the club for the past few years.

“Showjumping is science,” Taddy explained.

“But it’s not rocket science.

“You have to ride every stride and have your horse balanced.

“The best showjumpers are those good on the flat.”

TWE&PC regularly hosts and stages clinics with a variety of well-respected and highly successful instructors across a range of disciplines, including dressage, showjumping, eventing as well as learning to instruct.
