Clinic 1: Sunday, February 17, 2008
Deadline for Application and Payment: January 20, 2008
Clinic 1 on Sunday, February 17, 2008 will be held at the new Sunrise Stables on Troy Pike in Versailles, Kentucky. This clinic is geared for individuals currently riding and showing American Saddlebred horses. Participants will receive instruction to improve their riding and ability to show their horse.
The Sunday Clinic is limited to 16 riders. Stabling in Melissa's show barn at Sunrise Stables is provided the day of the clinic (February 17th) for riders desiring to bring their own horse to the clinic. If riders cannot bring their own horse to the clinic they may request to borrow one of the Sunrise Stables Riding Academy's lesson horses for the clinic. There are a limited number of lesson horses available on a first come first serve basis. Some of the Sunrise Stables Riding Academy horses available for use in the clinic include previous World Champions/National Champions and Reserve World/National Champions! The price for the clinic is $175 whether you bring and stable your own horse or borrow a horse from the Sunrise Stable Riding Academy.
Clinic 1 starts on February 17th with continental breakfast at 7 a.m. During the clinic, each rider will receive a private lesson from Melissa either in the morning session (which starts at 8 a.m.) or the afternoon session which starts at 1 p.m. When the private lessons end, there will be several small group riding sessions.........therefore each rider rides two times. A box lunch (included in the price of the clinic) will be served.
So....for $175 each rider rides two times (with 1 private lesson), has breakfast and lunch, can use a horse from Sunrise Stables Riding Academy (limited number available for use) with stall included or bring their own horse with stabling included.
Participants needing to stable their horses for additional nights they may move their horses to Fidler's Run Stable next door to Melissa's. Fidler's charges $25/night with a $15 deposit (which is refundable if you strip the stall before leaving).
Individuals desiring to watch the Sunday, February 17th clinic may audit the clinic for $35 (including breakfast and lunch).
