About The Event

{Originally scheduled for May 9th- Rescheduled to August 22nd due to COVID 19}

The discipline of Working Equitation, which is very popular in Europe, especially Spain and Portugal, is quickly growing in popularity in the USA because of the unique blend of classical riding movements, reining movements and negotiating obstacles. Great fit for children & adults- any safe tack. Western, English, Endurance, Hybrid all welcome.

Through the challenges of Working Equitation patterns, you will develop a better communication with your horse.  This clinic will be geared for those riders who are beginning in Working Equitation or those who are looking to expand their limited experience for their first W.E. Show. (ERC also hosting W.E. Schooling Show September 19, 2020). 

Speed will not be the goal in this clinic. Instead we will concentrate on the "Ease of Handling" & "Negotiating Obstacles" portion of Working Equitation. Working Equitation obstacles will be used along with the prescribed patterns and methods of negotiating the obstacles. Grass footing in outdoor arena. Restrooms, horse water, covered picnic area, & drinks for sale. Bring your own snacks/lunch.  

Clinic will be divided into 1.5 hour sessions (max of 4 riders per group) w/ mixed riding levels within each group.
