UPDATE: This clinic has been canceled due to lack of pre-registrants.
Show Jumping Course Designer Richard Jeffery will be conducting two free show jumping clinics at the 2019 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky. The first clinic will run Tuesday, August 27 and Wednesday, August 28 from 4:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. The second clinic will run on Friday, August 30 and Saturday, August 31 from 4:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. The first day of both clinics will be spent in the classroom and the second day will include practical application in the arena.
This seminar serves as a training program for current USEF officials 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, applicants must have "designed the jumping course at a minimum of two Preliminary 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 fee for current USEF officials and current “R” EVJCD license holders is $50.00. Auditing is FREE. The clinics are presented by the USEA and the Roger Haller Education Fund.

While every story submitted to the USEA for the June Horse of the Month was unique and special, it was Teddy’s story that stood out.
