AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: By Whitney Allen
The United States Hunter Jumper Association is proud to offer a USHJA Trainers Symposium, October 24-26, 2008, at Sweet Briar College in Sweet Briar, VA. This is your chance as riders and trainers to watch, listen and ask questions from some of the top trainers in the country. The clinicians include Danny Robertshaw, Scott Hofstetter and Harold Chopping. The symposium offers attendees a rare opportunity to participate in practical training sessions and round table discussions with top professionals in the industry. The schedule offers three days of hunters, equitation and jumpers. Each of the disciplines is broken into sections: i.e. junior hunters, intermediate equitation and junior/amateur owner jumpers. The sections will have three to four demonstration riders for the clinician to work and explain different techniques, exercises and tips for various levels of riders and horses. This is a great opportunity for professionals and members to exchange thoughts and ideas on training exercises, training aids and business practices.
The Sweet Briar College Symposium will also offer attendees an educational seminar each day in addition to the riding instruction. World Equestrian Brands will offer a seminar on “Is Your Tack Holding You Back,” presented by Rachel Hansen. Paul Cronin will offer an instructional seminar on the proper lunging techniques.
