RDA Showjumping is offering an exciting and fulfilling challenge to our riders, as more and more Groups are assessed to be able to deliver Showjumping sessions.
The distinction between pole work for RDA sessions and RDA Showjumping
All Groups (even those who do not wish to take part in RDA Showjumping) can continue to use poles on the ground in their RDA sessions.
However, Level 1 Showjumping has been introduced as the transition from pole work; setting RDA riders on the Showjumping Pathway, with the rider being coached to ride a set course of poles and concentrating on refining their light seat position, in preparation for jumping over raised poles in the jumping position, at Level 2 and beyond.
It’s rewarding and fun!
The Showjumping Pathway also offers RDA riders the valuable opportunity to take part in RDA Showjumping Competition and the new RDA Showjumping Proficiency Tests. RDA Coaches can benefit from further developing their coaching skills and allows the them to gain the new Showjumping Coaching award.
