Between the end of the fall season of lessons and the beginning of the winter session is a roughly 6-week gap. How are horses and riders to keep fit? Winter Break Clinic!
The 2016 Winter Break Clinic saw 88 riders who rode in 254 private and group lessons. Eight instructors took part in the clinics, with lessons which included both English and Western and ranged from beginner levels to advanced flat and jumping.
Lord Stirling Stable's certified instructors will be available November 19 through December 21to share their experience with one to three students for a one-hour lesson. This can be videotaped with the option to review the tape with the instructor afterward. Pre-registration is required.
Riders are provided the option to select their instructors and horses, gaining the opportunity to have a fresh perspective from a different instructor and perhaps trying out a never-before-ridden horse. Much appreciation goes to Martha Wells, Winter Break Clinic coordinator, for organizing the clinic.
