Demo Riders

Demo Riders

An exciting feature of Equidays is the opportunity for those with the required level of skill and experience to be selected as our demonstration riders. Demo riders play an important role during clinics and seminars, working with clinicians and presenters to demonstrate techniques and positioning.

Clinicians and presenters have a planned programme of training theories and techniques and demo riders will demonstrate the educator’s principles with their own horse while learning at the same time.

Demo riders must acknowledge their role in the demonstration and be willing to do as the instructor requests and demo rider’s horses should be comfortable in a noisy environment where distractions are common. Due to the nature of the event, demo riders will need to be of a specific skill level judged at the discretion of Equidays event organisers.
