USEA ICP Level II certified instructor Gerry Lindsay and Dr. Liz Addison, DVM will be hosting a galloping and conditioning clinic at Oakhill Farm on Saturday, September 19, 2020.

This will be a perfect warm-up for the fall events!

Riders will be placed in groups of six of a similar standard. Each session will last 1.5 hours and the first session will commence at 8:30 a.m.
Clinic fee: $70 (USEA ICP Instructors, USEA Adult Riders, and USPC members $65)
Don't miss the opportunity to have fun with your horse in a unique and beautiful environment!

Being spontaneous has paid off for Kevin Keane and Sportsfield Candy. “I bought him on a Wednesday and showed him on a Thursday,” Keane recalls about his first event with his Irish Sport Horse gelding, then 9 years old, at Plantation Field Horse Trials (Unionville, Pennsylvania) in September 2016. “I owned him for part of a day, and the next morning I showed up at a CCI and jogged him up for a two-star, and we went clean and clean and clean.”
