June 11, 2013--Award-winning magazine Practical Horseman will host "How To Be a Successful Eventer at Any Level," brought to you by Cosequin?. Olympic eventer Phillip Dutton will present the free webinar on Wednesday, June 12, 2013, at 8 p.m. ET. Sign up for the webinar at https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/842796606.
This behind-the-scenes look at the successful strategies of a top-level eventer will arm you with the information you need to create your own success in the saddle. During the hour-long presentation, Phillip will discuss how to be a good learner, explain how to assess your equine partner based on your goals. He'll review his basic horse-care program, which is the core of his own success, and touch on physical and mental fitness for both horse and rider. Finally, Phillip will delve into the training process and offer show-day advice for each eventing phase before spending about 20 minutes answering questions from attendees.
"We are thrilled to have Phillip share his wealth of knowledge with our readers," said Sandy Oliynyk, editor of Practical Horseman. "His presentation, which is based on his new book Modern Eventing with Phillip Dutton, is helpful for all riders, no matter their level of experience or discipline."
