Saturday three Dufour Dressage students took off to a training session with the national U18 and U21 trainer Ulrich G. Sørensen. Celine Silfen has participated a few times before so she knows how Ulrich teaches and we have had a nice progress together with Ulrich since last year. For both Frida D. Pedersen and Sara V. Petersen it was their first time training with Ulrich. Sara is rather experienced from her time on the U16 team, but this was the first time at U18 with Ulrich.
All three girls did very well, and are now even more ready to the next couple of competitions.
For me as a trainer it’s nice to bring my students to training sessions like this. I get to talk to Ulrich about some technical details and learn a small new things every time. The nice thing about having a good cooperation with the national trainer is, that it gets much easier to really learn from his many years of knowledge both when we’re at the competitions where he watches us closely, but also during a daily training as this time.
