“The fact that I can keep my training going and continuing to develop continuously without having to travel over 100 km one way is invaluable”, says Maria.
When the Pandemic and the EHV-1 virus struck, Maria and Charlotte had a two-day dressage clinic for riders in Härnösand planned but had to think of another way to keep the clinic going. Maria and Charlotte then took digital training one step further. Since the stables were closed and they could not travel, they decided to arrange the clinic digitally via Ridesum!
“Charlotte would have come up to us in Härnösand to teach a weekend clinic, but with the pandemic it’s not possible to travel. I then came up with the idea of using Ridesum instead”, says Maria
For many of the clinic participants, it was the first time they tried to train digitally, and the new method seemed a bit scary at first. Will the technology work, will I get the same out of my training as I do on traditional trainings?
But as soon as they were up and running, the riders thought that training digitally was better than they expected and something they absolutely want to do again!
“It worked out great, we used my account and my phone to film all weekend, so the participants only needed to bring their own phone with headphones for audio”, says Maria.
