In 2019, GMHA is merging the June Eventing clinic and the Festival of Eventing clinics. The USEA June Eventing Clinic is going to be a great opportunity to ride with four fabulous upper level clinicians – Bobby Costello, Bonnie Mosser, Becca Vick, and John Zopatti – over three days right here at GMHA! The three-day clinic will include two dressage lessons, two show jumping lessons, and two cross-country lessons for Beginner Novice through Preliminary levels
This clinic is USEA affiliated in Area I. Spaces are limited and early registration is encouraged.
For GMHA Members: We have added an extra day in between the start of the clinic and the ending of the June Horse Trials. Check-in is on Monday after the weekend crowd has departed. You can continue to stay-over after the horse trials Sunday night and enjoy the Member’s Day with cross-country schooling on Monday before the clinic starts! Sunday night stabling fees apply.
Not a GMHA member? This is a great reason to become one today! Sign up at https://www.gmhainc.org/membership/
Clinic Details: Dressage lessons will be private with show jumping and cross-country lessons in small groups. Over the course of three days, you will receive six lessons total: two dressage lessons, two show jumping lessons, and two cross-country lessons. Riding groups are based upon the level you select on your entry form. The clinic follows the June Horse Trials on 6/1-6/2 so you will enjoy the added benefit of getting to school the professionally designed show jumping and cross-country courses from the weekend’s competition. Get the most out of your time in the saddle with these small groups that allow for maximum teacher to rider instruction.
Stay tuned for details about available evening activities!
