World Class Equestrians to clinic Canada’s Eventing Community

Eventing Canada [!] announced today its 2003 clinic series, to be held in Ontario and British Columbia.

“This clinic series is as ambitious as we have ever planned,” said Sue Grocott of Eventing Canada [!], “ since attracting, and paying for these very busy international calibre coaches requires months of advance scheduling and payment in either American dollars, or pounds sterling. Due to the chronically weak Canadian currency, staging this annual series has become quite a challenge!”

Former US Olympian and current Canadian Three Day Team Coach, James Wofford will conduct a two day clinic at Dreamcrest Farm, Port Perry, 03 – 04 May 2003. Mr. Wofford is legendary for his training techniques and programs which have vaulted current American stars, such as Karen and David O’Connor, as well as Kim Vinoski, to their recent Three Day wins.

Pat Burgess will conduct her trademark “Jumping for Eventers” clinic 17 – 18 May 2003. Ms. Burgess, former jumping Trainer for the British Three Day Event Team, has taught such well-known Eventers as Richard Meade, Virginia Leng and Lucinda Green throughout their successful carees.

The following weekend, 24 – 25 May, Ms. Burgess will conduct the same format clinic at Northlands Equestrian Centre in Vancouver, BC.

Former World Champion and Silver Olympic medalist Lucinda Green will return to Dreamcrest Farm in Port Perry 14 – 15 June. Ms. Green is renowned for her ability to encourage exceptional riding performances from all her pupils, to ensure safe and successful cross country rounds.

To close Eventing Canada [!] ‘s 2003 clinic series, the Association will present Ride for Riders 28 June. This clinic, now in its seventh successful year, brings top Ontario Coaches, from all disciplines, together to teach dressage, stadium jumping and cross country at one of the outstanding event facilities in Ontario. Equestrians from all levels are encouraged to hone their skills under the tutelage of Canada’s leading trainers. Anyone who is interested in sampling horse trials and “eventing” is invited to participate, mounted or as a spectator, as introductory lessons are offered in all three phases from knowledgeable trainers. Proceeds from this clinic are credited to the Event Rider Benevolent Fund which provides financial assistance to injured Athletes in the Sport.

Eventing Canada [!] is an amateur athletic association whose mandate is to educate and train Canadian Equestrian Athletes in the Olympic Sport of Three Day Event, from grass roots to elite Olympic and World Championship levels.
