Sean Topsom (ENG)
Working Equitation and Dressage
Another new international clinician to Equidays 2019 is Englands Sean Topsom who will be holding clinics on Working Equitation and Dressage.
Sean was first introduced to horses by a friend who needed someone to go riding with him. After some time in a hacking yard, Sean was more of an event/hunt rider with dressage being at the bottom of his list until he realised the better the flat work the better the jumping.
Sean then got involved with Working Equitation and was picked for the British team twice before moving to Portugal where he worked with Bento Castelhano who was his trainer for the next three years. From this Sean was involved in training from starting the youngest of horses to seeing the training all the way through to the end.
Sean’s clinics at Equidays will look at what he considers is the most important element – the warm-up. Sean will speak about rhythm, flexibility, balance, contact and straightness.
