Clinics & Seminars

Clinics are offered to individual groups, stables, or clubs and provide lessons to individuals riders.  Costs of transportation, lodging, and meals must be pro-rated for each rider and added to each lesson.
Clinic details are as follows:
•  Private lessons are 45 minutes
•  Semi-private lessons (two horses and riders) are one hour
•  Standard clinic format is eight to ten rides per day
•  Any facility located within a two-hour commute from Upland, California can schedule a
    clinic with a minimum of four rides
•  Proof of liability insurance is on file in the CDS Central Office or can be provided upon

Specialized clinics are also offered:
•  “Dressage for other disciplines” clinics focus on the application of dressage concepts to
    event riders, pony clubs, 4-H clubs, hunter/jumper riders, western dressage, and breed
•  Dressage Sport Horse Breed Fundamentals clinics focus on the related concepts of
    conformation and function, and can be in addition to any customized clinic program

Workshops are clinics that can combine sessions with mounted and un-mounted participants.  These events are an informative educational tool that allows the cost of the clinic to be divided between the demo riders and the un-mounted participants. This format offers a quality educational experience to a larger audience, and is an excellent and affordable alternative to clubs, groups, and individual stables.

Seminars are un-mounted educational sessions that target specific topics.  These educational formats can be combined with a traditional clinic or a workshop, and can be scheduled as an all day indoor activity.  Attendees are provided written materials appropriate to the topic covered.  For exceptionally in-depth programs, a workbook is prepared as a part of the sessions in order to facilitate a more dynamic and interactive educational experience, and are custom-designed for the target audience.
