This course is about learning by doing, it's not just theory.
I went into the camp thinking that I might not be any good at designing courses since there are SO many things to think about. By the end, I was feeling much more confident in my ability to design rideable courses, adapt courses as needed based on restrictions that may come up, and very importantly: accurately GRID my courses so that I know what to expect when it comes time to set them!
Furthermore, from the perspective of a rider and future judge, I gained a lot from considering how the courses should change as we go up the levels, and how they might need to be ridden or judged differently, accordingly. Thanks so much Trish for putting this course together!! I highly recommend it to anyone involved with working equitation, whether you’re a competitor, a judge/TD, a course designer or a show manager. There is a lot to learn!

This course has been interesting, fun, sometimes frustrating (computer techno I'm not) and full of information.
The support from the instructor and course candidates is a huge asset, I felt like part of a team working for a common goal, which is really what this sport conveys, camaraderie.
I have learned a great deal mapping courses for riders. The tutorials were most helpful, I used them repeatedly.
I learned rules, how to approach/depart from obstacles, mathematics of setting up obstacles using a grid which is a HUGE time saver in any arena.
So much more to learn, likely I will revisit specific components of the course again in the future as now I need to apply my new knowledge to real time WE activities!
