Clinics, Shows, Etc

Greg Best is returning May 2 – 4, 2016!

Greg Best is known throughout the world for his double silver 1988 Olympic medals and grand prix show jumping. Greg is now sharing his talents with others, coaching at clinics in the United States and New Zealand.

The first session of the day will start at 7:30 am, followed by 9:30 am, noon and then 2:00 pm. Out of respect for the clinician, all riders must be ready and mounted prior to their start time. You will be grouped with 2 others, according to your level. Some riders choose to ride all three days for a tremendous experience. Please note any time limitations. We will try to schedule you on the day requested and will let you know ASAP if a different day is necessary due to grouping by riders’ levels. Clinic runs rain or shine and Greg prefers to be in the outdoor ring.

Each rider can audit for the full clinic. Each ride includes one free auditor for the day of the ride. Auditing is $30 per day.

A non-refundable deposit of $150 is due for each registered ride. Please contact us ASAP for more details and to register, as space is very limited.
