Fine Contact Competitions reward correct training, lightness, partnership and trust, and are designed for those who seek the most respectful ways to communicate our requests, and for ridden horses, the most comfortable ways to carry us.
Our Associate, Equimind, has already run the first of these competitions with the format for assessment receiving excellent feedback, we now need to recruit suitable judges as this month we launch the first levels of competition to a worldwide audience.
Judges are paid £1.50 per test that they assess online. There is no need for a writer as the judge simply records their comments and mark for each movement and the overall assessment of the test, the audio is then emailed to Equimind to be transcribed. The competitions are monthly and so the judge will have 5 days at the beginning of the following month in which to assess the class and submit their audio.
We are looking for those who are aligned with the Concordia Principles and Ethos, who are experienced as judges and/or trainers and understand what to look for in a correctly schooled horse.
Please send your CV and application to email@example.com
Further details of Concordia tests, including rules and guidelines, are presently being uploaded to the website and will be available to view shortly. ...
A big thank you from all the Concordia Team ❤️
Concordia has another page 'Thoughtful Equestrians', which is a place for discussion and sharing. It's an open group so anyone can see the posts and join in the discussion. So, everyone is not necessarily a Concordian or like-minded there... but hopefully, most are. We work hard to keep the discussions supportive, friendly and about practices rather than personalities. If you haven't already been there you can find it at www.facebook.com/groups/Concordiaequestrians/ ...
Joining Concordia can be likened to being part of a political party that stands for what you believe in and works for the changes that you want to see.
Registered Professionals have assessed themselves and/or their businesses, charities or clubs to be aligned with the Concordia ethos and they make a commitment to share and uphold the Concordia Principles. They are listed on the Concordia Database and their listing includes details about what they offer, why they have registered, contact details, and a link to their website.
With professional equestrians joining from all around the globe, Concordia can’t readily endorse or accredit them, but they are given the opportunity to declare their accordance with the Concordian movement and a platform to support each other and to learn from each other, with the goal of finding the most effective and compassionate ways to train, care for and connect with our equine partners. By joining together under one umbrella organisation, we gain the power and momentum to have a positive influence on the equestrian world.
Registration is online as is the database of Registered Professionals www.concordiaequestrians.org ...
