Heather Broda - Optimum Equine

Some of you may have met Heather at either our September Showing Show or our Halloween Dressage where she was ably assisting our Judge.

Heather has a local Business (Optimum Equine) where she backs young horses, has produced a small selection for Sale and has horses in for training, specifically ex-racehorses and horses that are tricky or have behavioural issues.  Heather's passion is biomechanics and working horses in such a way to get the best out of them and train for longevity, hoping to prevent injury.  She uses long reining as a tool to help correct biomechanics but follows this through with the way she teaches and helps horse and rider to achieve better results.

Heather will shortly be holding a clinic at Kirstie's yard at Ram Alley, Ashford Hill and should you wish to attend, please contact her direct through her Facebook page -

Please let us know if you would be interested in Heather holding a talk or clinic for MRC in the New Year.  While Heather specialises in biomechanics, she is open to suggestions if there are particular areas that are of interest.  Heather is hoping to do a talk / clinic specifically on the retraining of racehorses as this is a favourite area.

Thanks and Regards,
Tracy (Membership Secretary)
