Lena Wedenmark joined us for a rainy, one day clinic at Buttonwood Farm with its new GGT footing and covered arena. Lena brought her expertise in analyzing the rider’s position and balance to help the horse move freely forward. The take aways from working with Lena were invaluable since once the rider made a few positional adjustments to become more aligned, the rider could then recreate the same feel through muscle memory when riding on their own.
Headquartered in Wellington, FL, Lena is a United States Federation instructor, certified through fourth level. She is a two-time Pan American Games Coach and has had students who have earned medals at FEI World Dressage Challenge Competitions. Her philosophy emphasizes relaxation, alignment, and unity with the horse’s movement, which she applies during the lessons at home and at clinics in Texas, Kansas, Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and California. She coaches riders of all levels and clinics regularly in California and Texas with competitive professionals and young riders.
Riders felt amazing when all the pieces suddenly fell into place. They left with so much enthusiasm that they shared an email string called The After Party to share what they learned.
