Please us for a great opportunity to learn from Karen O'Connor on December 16-18, 2019. Karen has an incredible depth of knowledge and a passion for horses.
The USEA Instructors' Certification Program has developed a workshop on understanding the fundamentals for dressage that is educational for anyone interested in riding. The reading, demonstrations, theory, and practical execution is well-organized and will help anyone in their riding, teaching, and basic understanding of the sport and horses.
We will need some demo riders (interesting, but not a lesson) to help as well. ANYONE who rides dressage or jumping would learn a ton from this workshop. Please contact Stephanie Goodman at (208) 315-2086 for more information about being a demo rider.
After the workshop, Karen is going to give a day of lessons for the select few who jump on this opportunity quickly! Click here to sign up for lessons with Karen.
We appreciate your support in bringing top education to the Pacific Northwest and hope to keep our community growing! All information can be found on our website at http://wasatchsporthorses.com.
After a jam-packed week, the final day of competition at the Maryland 5 Star is upon us. Riders have shown off their style in the horse inspection, danced their way down the centerline in dressage, and contested some serious obstacles in cross-country up until this point. Now it's time to demonstrate the fitness and accuracy that each horse possesses in the final phase: show jumping.
It was a great day of cross-country riding at the Maryland 5 Star. There were 35 horses who crossed the finish and 11 of those finished double clear. With British, French, New Zealand, Canadian, and American riders coming through the finish flags – it was a true world class competition. The USEA was at the finish to see what the riders thought of the very first Maryland 5 Star cross-country track designed by Ian Stark.
Weren’t able to spend your morning glued to the livestream of the 2021 Maryland 5 Star cross-country? Couldn’t be there in person to trek up the hills? We have you covered with a play-by-play of what happened on Ian Stark’s cross-country course which gave both the designer and the riders many sleepless nights, but ended up riding quite well for the majority of the field.
Kurt Martin maintains his lead in the USEF CCI3*-L Eventing National Championship with a score of 23.5. He piloted D.A. Lifetime, Debbie Adams’ 9-year-old mare, through a fault-free cross-country round over the new Ian Stark-designed course.
