Top Hunter, Jumper and Equitation Trainers Headed to Colorado for the USHJA Trainers Symposium


USHJA is proud to offer a USHJA Trainers Symposium September 8-10, 2008 at the Colorado Horse Park in Parker, CO. This is your chance as riders and trainers to watch, listen, and ask questions from some of the top trainers in the country. The clinicians include Alison Firestone Robitalle, Valerie Renihan and Kitty Barker.  The Symposiums offer attendees a rare opportunity to participate in practical training sessions and round table discussions with top professionals in the industry.  The schedule offers three days of hunters, equitation and jumpers.  Each of the disciplines is broken into sections: i.e. Junior Hunters, Intermediate Equitation and Junior/Amateur Owner Jumpers.  The sections will have 3-4 demonstration riders for the clinician to work and explain different techniques, exercises and tips for various levels of riders and horses.  This is a great opportunity for professionals and members to exchange thoughts and ideas on training exercises, training aids, and business practices.
