Two day clinic: 21/22 April 2018 -
281 Mt Eden Rd, Kirkwood, PA 17536
**w/ option of XC schooling at Fair Hill International**
It's that time of the year to get ourselves and our ponies tuned-up!! Come join us for a fun and informative weekend.
This clinic will help you discover how good flatwork is the basis for good jumping in the ring or out on XC. Richard has coached/trained many riders and horses at the beginning of their careers as well as those competing at the 3* and 4* levels of Eventing and show jumping at 1.40 m or higher. He is a certified USEA Level III Instructor and has been named a National Instruction Legend by the United States Pony Club. In 2014, Richard coached the USPC Pony Jumper Team to win both the Team and Individual Gold Medals at the USEF National Pony Jumper Championships and has been designing the courses for the USPC Show Jumping Championships since 1987. At the other end of his range, Richard helped develop and organize the equestrian venues and competitions for the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta and was the equestrian coach for the 2012 US Olympic Pentathlon team.
Richard has the ability to recognize how each rider/horse learns and, then, tailor his instructions just for them. AND, he does this in a very relaxed and inviting atmosphere.
Sessions will be offered for ALL levels of riders and horses. This include green horses. And, groups will be limited to no more than 5 riders. Private lessons are available, if space allows. Richard recommends riding both days to gain the most information and to confirm changes in the riders and their horses. However, if unable to attend both days, there is a 1-day options available. (Please specify Sat or Sun if riding just one day.) Don't currently have a horse to ride in the clinic? Come audit. It's FREE!
