Lexington, KY - The third Markel/USEF Young Horse Dressage Training Session of 2013 wrapped up Sunday at Rosebrook Farm in Georgetown, Massachusetts. The two-day clinic featured 13 horses between the ages of four and six and was once again taught by USEF Young Horse Coach Scott Hassler.

“It was nice to visit the New England area a second time for a Markel/USEF Young Horse Dressage Training Session. Participation from the auditors, owners, breeders and trainers who attended was terrific,” said Hassler. “The participating horses were a great mixture of U.S.-bred and imported horses and overall, the quality was quite nice. I hope to see some of these horses at the Championships in August.”

The open training session was attended by breeders, horse owners and local young horse enthusiasts. In addition to two days of mounted lessons, participants enjoyed discussions with Hassler as well as  lunches sponsored by Rosebrook Farm and Mary Phelps of Markel Insurance Company.

“I got exactly what I wanted from the clinic, not only a better understanding of how to better train my horse but how to improve my training and riding techniques with all the young horses that come through my barn.   The clinic was very educational and the selection of horses and riders could not have been better,” said Loveless. “There was a very good variety of talented horses and riders participating in the clinic, all with different areas that needed improvement. ”

The final Markel/USEF Young Horse Dressage Training Session of the Spring will be held April 27-28 in Lockport, Illinois at Oak Hill Farm. Further information on the program can be found here.
