Hylofit was on the ground for the 3rd gathering of the Two Worlds Together Dressage Summit in Ocala, Florida. Hosted by Linda and Pat Parelli, this was an opportunity to learn techniques for understanding the mental and emotional states of the horse and to promote physical fitness.
Julia Chatigny is a competitive jumper rider who found her passion for riding at a young age. Throughout the years she trained with several Grand Prix horses to help bring her up in the ranks, but as time went on, Julia realized she wanted a horse of her own.
Hylofit recently partnered with Christoph Hess, a well-known FEI judge for eventing and dressage, at clinics at Magnolia Farm and Frederick’s Equestrian International last month. Originally from Germany, Hess is a professional riding instructor and former director of dressage training for the German National Federation (DOKC).
The stands at the HITS Horse Shows in Ocala were filled with eager riders on Sunday, February 17th as Matthias Hollberg and his horse Diabolo trotted their way into the Grand Prix stadium. The occasion was the Hylofit demonstration which took place prior to the $100,000 Grand Prix.
We are excited to welcome the University of Southern California Equestrian Team to the Hylofit family. The team is using Hylofit to make smarter training decisions and to track their fitness (horse and rider!) throughout the competition season.
