Pair of Trainer Symposiums Scheduled for April

RELEASE: March 11, 2010
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: By Whitney Allen

The next opportunity to learn from some of the best riders and instructors in the world of hunters and jumpers will come April 19-20 in Washington and April 19-21 in Connecticut during the SmartPak/United States Hunter Jumper Association (USHJA) Trainer Symposiums. Registration for the symposiums has been open since January 1.

The symposiums offer attendees a rare opportunity to participate in the practical training sessions and round table discussions with top professionals in the industry. Trainer symposiums count toward the professional requirements for the USHJA Trainer Certification Program.

The Monroe, WA, symposium will be held at Evergreen Equestrian Park with Jenny Karazissis leading the hunter portion and Julie Winkel teaching the jumping sessions.

The Westbrook, CT, symposium will be held at the Westbrook Hunt Club with Morgan Thomas leading the hunters, Valerie Renihan conducting the equitation portion, and Linda Allen instructing the jumpers.

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. Symposium registration is currently open.

For more information visit the Symposium website or contact Melanie Fransen at mfransen@ushja.org.
