USDF Youth Outreach Clinic at The Paddock Riding Club

Dear Region 7 youth members,

We are excited to let you know that we will be offering one of our new USDF Youth Outreach Clinics in Region 7 on October 21-22, 2017. The goal of these clinics, held in conjunction with the USDF Jr/YR Clinic Series, is to introduce those USDF youth members who are dedicated dressage riders, but who have not yet entered the realm of FEI level competition, to the USDF "youth pipeline" and the opportunities it offers.

The Region 7 Youth Outreach Clinic, featuring Rosalind (Roz) Kinstler, will be held at The Paddock Riding Club, Los Angeles, CA. Rider applications are being accepted through September 15, and must be submitted online. (All applications must be accompanied by a link to a video of the rider completing a test, on the horse they wish to ride at the clinic. Please make sure the horse and rider can be clearly viewed.) There is no application fee, but the clinic registration fee for selected riders is $200.00.

These clinics are open to USDF Participating or Group Members, between the ages of 10-21, who are able to complete a Training Level test. The clinics will be held over two days, and will include a variety of instruction. On the first day, participants will observe the Jr/YR Clinic riding sessions, sitting together as a group, as their clinician leads the discussion for each session. They will also join the riders of the Jr/YR Clinic during selected activities, where they can participate in the lecture and interactive discussion with the clinician of the Jr/YR Clinic. On the second day, each clinic participant will ride in a 45-minute session with their clinician.
