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!

The 2020 USEA Future Event Horse (FEH) East Coast Championships kicked off today at Loch Moy Farm in Adamstown, Maryland following the successful completion of the FEH Central Championships at Haras Hacienda in Magnolia, Texas this past Thursday. Twenty-three horses were presented today to Championship judges Robin Walker and Susan Graham White – four in the FEH East Coast 4-year-old Championship and 18 in the FEH East Coast 3-year-old Championship.
After a rainy night, the footing for the FEI cross-country drained nicely and held up well throughout the morning. Elisabeth Halliday-Sharp held on to her overnight lead aboard Fernhill By Night and added 4.8 time faults to her double clear show jumping round to take home the win in the CCI4*-S. Not one rider was able to make it through the finish flags within the time allowed, but the top 28 had no jumping penalties.
The CCI3*-S and CCI4*-S divisions were able to complete their show jumping before the torrential rain interrupted the competition for the CCI2*-S division.
The 2020 United States Eventing Association (USEA) Future Event Horse (FEH) Central Championships took place yesterday, September 24 at Haras Hacienda in Magnolia, Texas. With four new champions crowned, this marked one of the first USEA Championships to be held in 2020. Jayne Lloyd, the organizer of the Championships shared, “Everyone had a nice day with their youngsters. The quality of horses is getting better and better. Haras [Hacienda] is a lovely facility to put this on – great stabling, great footing, all indoor because we’ve had some bad weather the past few days. But overall, I think it all went really well.”
