USHJA is Proud to Announce the 2008 Trainer's Symposium Dates, Locations and New Format

The Symposiums offer attendees a rare opportunity to participate in practical training sessions and round table discussions with top professionals in the industry.  The new 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 to exchange thoughts and ideas on training exercises, training aids, and business practices. 

Not a trainer? The Symposiums are open to everyone!

June 1st- The complete schedule, registration, clinicians and hotel information will be available at
www.ushja.org.

The first Symposium will be held September 8-10, 2008 at the Colorado Horse Park in Parker, CO followed by the second Symposium which will be held October 24-26, 2008 at Sweet Briar College in Sweet Briar, VA.
