Everyone is invited to audit. The audit fee is $20 per day with a discounted price of $10 per day for Young Riders, Adult Riders, or any parent of a rider in this clinic (membership has its privileges!) Riders in this clinic are free. Riders in the Oliver Townend clinic the following week who want to get a head start are also free (a donation to the lunch fund would be welcome).
A hot lunch and hot beverages will be included. Think green and bring your own insulated coffee mug! If you are going to audit, please RSVP by emailing John Meriwether with the Subject line “OT RSVP“ at [email protected] saying which day(s) you will attend and how many in your party. We don’t want to run out of food.
This being Washington, please dress warmly and bring a chair. And don’t’ forget your coffee mug!
Five-star eventer Kim Severson taught a show jumping clinic in January at Milestone Sport Horses in Lovettsville, Virginia where she instructed riders on the importance of forward riding for successful jumping. In this exercise, which Severson progressively adds additional pieces to, riders are instructed to focus on the quality of their canter.
On Wednesday, March 10, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. Central time, join Eric Dierks for a live stream interview with David O'Connor. David was an alternate for the 1988 Summer Olympics, and riding Wilton Fair, was part of the U.S. team at the 1990 World Equestrian Games, where he placed 35th individually and the team finished fourth.
Billy Jackson was introduced to horses at a young age through his local 4-H program. “One of my mom's close friends was a large animal vet and she really encouraged me to stay with it,” Jackson said. As an adult, he is a Marketing Project Manager, and when he’s not at work, he’s a lower level eventer based at Poplar Place Farm.
