In addition, leading junior riders Theo Sushko, Colin Smith, and Tommy Fenwick will be on hand to answer questions and share their experiences.
This steeplechase racing clinic for junior riders is a mounted clinic. We will introduce the sport to new participants and teach juniors with an interest in pony racing the skills and tactics necessary to succeed. More seasoned junior jockeys are encouraged to attend as well.
All levels will benefit from our experienced panel.
We will work with kids and show them how to use their knowledge and skills from the show ring or hunt field and translate it to the race course.
Riders must have their own mounts and will be grouped by ability and experience. Riders must be proficient at the walk, trot, and canter but are not required to jump.
Successfully completing this clinic may qualify participants for the MSA Junior Field Master Chase series.
$25 per rider if payment is received by 3/1… $30 per rider if paid after.
The official MSA pony measurement steward will be on hand at the clinic to measure ponies. Note, ALL ponies must be measured if they are planning on running in a race at any point.
