Wise Owl Equitation competition winners announced

The winners of the Wise Owl Equitation competition for a free 121 video lesson with a world-class trainer are as follows:

  • Amanda Hehir (Slieve Bloom)
  • Caitriona O’Brien (Carne)

Wise Owl Equitation a new highly innovative internet-based business which connects trainers across all disciplines with equestrians all over the world for remote training and video lessons.

Wise Owl Equitation recognise that while there is a wealth of riding talent out there, unfortunately not all talented riders are able to access the training required to truly excel.  Their mission is to make top-quality training available to everyone regardless of location, transport, time and budget constraints. They have a host of top-quality trainers available on the site to give live video lessons or expert feedback and advice on pre-recorded videos.

The video below gives a little more detail on how it all works.

Training is offered in two ways:

  • Live video lessons – the same as a normal 121 lesson just completed through a video call. The rider will wear a wireless earphone so they can hear the trainer’s instructions, the trainer will watch the horse and rider through their laptop, tablet or phone.
  • Video Feedback – A rider can upload a pre-recorded video for the trainer to comment on and offer advice. This may be a schooling session, a dressage test or a show jumping round. This works particularly well for riders who don’t have brilliant internet signal at their yards or, for riders who have been practicing what was learned in a video lesson but just want additional feedback.
