Show Jumping Course Designer Richard Jeffery will be offering a Show Jumping Seminar on Wednesday, March 20, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Carolina Horse Park in Raeford, North Carolina, prior to the start of the Carolina International CCI & Horse Trials.
This seminar serves as a training program for current USEF "R" and "S" Eventing Course Designers who meet the eligibility requirements and wish to obtain their USEF "R" Eventing Jumping Course Designer (EVJCD) license. The seminar will also fulfill the continuing education clinic (CEC) requirements for current "R" EVJCD license holders.
In order to be eligible for a USEF "R" EVJCD license, judges must have "designed the jumping course at a minimum of two Intermediate level or higher horse trials at two separate Federation licensed/endorsed competitions within the current or previous two years. These courses must be submitted with the application."
The clinic is also open to auditors interested in learning more about show jumping course design. The audit fee is $45 and includes lunch and beverages.
