2 What went right – Horses acclimated to climate – Pacing – riders were on target for pace – Team work – crews and riders worked together – Road crews were fantastic – Follow-up questionnaire What needs work – Ride to faster speeds/pacing – More trained personnel – Better weather!

5 Good job Kathy and Val

6 Speed – ride at world class level Soundness Reasonable starts Focus on 2010 To hold our team to a professional standard – accountable, prepared and hungry for the win

7 What kind of speed are we talking about? 18k to 27k /hour

8 KilometersMiles

12 How do we improve our world postion? By increasing the fitness level of our horsesOur horses can be even more fit than they areFitter horse = better recoveries = faster timesBy increasing the fitness level of our horsesOur horses can be even more fit than they areFitter horse = better recoveries = faster times

13 What have we learned about more rigorous training? Horses need to gallop at a relaxed pace 17K to 30K (10.56 to 18.6 mph) in training Horses need to train more days a week up to 5 days a week At higher levels, 2 workouts need to be 10 to 15 miles, one miles long Almost all work is at gallop, very little trot Two days a week long walks – 2 – 5 hours at 4-5 mph

14 Training at the canter and gallop Increases cardiovascular system, leading to faster recovery times Teaches horses to find their relaxed pace Riders need to learn to sit down and ride this pace Horses get used to carrying weight on their back

15 Using the walk in training Walking uses most of the same muscles as the canter Less risk of injury Good for metal stability of the horse Must be a power 5mph for 2 to 5 hours, or longer Get heavy rider to help with this, condition the horses back to weight Disadvantage - time consuming

16 GPS Advantage in Advanced Training Speed Pace Heart-rate Elevation Trail Use every workout Analyse and compare Once a week do same loop for comparison

17 Pre-race training Eight weeks prior do a fast ride every week for four weeks – miles, 13-16mph Choose footing carefully Two weeks before race, one more longer faster workout

18 Soundness Riders need to know: How to palpate Feel for heat Flex See subtle lameness in trot Recognize when horse is crooked Leave “wait and see” attitude behind Get horse checked out

19 Up to 8 sessions, one in each region, held in conjunction with a ride. Seminar style, two days before the ride. Rides picked for flat, fast course – You will be asked to ride a pace – We will use group crewing – bring as many crew people as possible

20 Three in 2010 – dates should be final by June to 80 miles fast course Selectors and chef looking for complete package – fast, calm, professional – horse and rider

21 Eight weeks prior to race miles – show us the afterburners Horses stay in Danville area until race Six weeks prior training resumes. Two to four weeks prior one more ride at a brisk pace – miles. Chef and vets will be back and forth to supervise

22 Call chef with your riding schedule and training plan by March 23.

23

24 Obtain COC and move up the levels Practice for bigger competition The chef will be at most major FEI rides to coach and observe riders and crew

25 Attend training sessions Learn to pace, alone and with others Improve riding skills – Leg yield and shoulder in a frame – Cavelletti work – Know the function of each rein

26 Assignments will be relevant to goal, even it it not obvious to you. Each person will be expected to complete them – no exceptions Will tell me about adaptibilty, creativity, responsiveness Some will be irritating, some fun – depends on your point of view

27 Get started on 1. The New Toughness Training for Sports James E. Loehr, Ed.D., 1994 Penguin 2. Mental Training for Peak Performance Steven Ungerleider, Ph.D., 1996 Rodale Press 3. Lactose Threshold Training Peter Janssen, MD, 2001 Human Kinetics,

28 Teams - Every NTL rider on a team Technology - Must ride with GPS!!! Crews – Organize all riders crews to work together. Use bucket brigade whenever possible. Make sure no rider is left without a crew. Curve Balls Improve horsemanship Monthly assignments Reading Continue with on-line discussions

29 How Bad Do You Want It? If it seems overwhelming, remember these words:

30 People always tell me, son what does it take to reach and touch your dream? To them I always say, “Are you hungry? Are you thirsty? Is it a fire that burns you up inside? How bad do you want it? How bad do you need it? Are you eatin’, sleepin’ dreamin’ with that one thing on your mind? How bad… Cause if you want it all you’ve got to lay it all out on the line.”

31 I get to make my living doing what I love, I get to give my heart and soul but sometimes that ain’t enough. Brother, if you’re like me, looking down that road, be careful of that wild wind son, sometimes it won’t let go. Can you feel it? Can you taste it? Can you hear it knocking on your door? How bad…
