Junior and Young Rider Novice Steeplechase Clinic

Sunday March 3, 2019 – 10:00 am – Green Spring Valley Hounds Hunt Club

If you’re interested in joining in on the fun of junior racing this spring… this is a do not miss!  You’ll learn everything you need to know!  Anyone under 21 is welcome provided they can demonstrate control over their mount at the walk, trot and canter.  Riders must bring their own mounts and will be grouped by ability and experience.  Jumping and previous race experience are not required to attend this clinic.
A representative of the MSA Board of Directors will be present at the clinic in the event that any prospective competitors in the Junior Field Master Chases seek to be certified as qualified to compete in the Spring of 2019. Candidates seeking certification should be able to canter/hand gallop in a group safely for about a mile or more, and should be able to jump a series of fences approximately 2’3 to 2’6” in a group, safely, while at a canter/hand gallop and following a field master. While this ability level is not required to attend this clinic, it will be required by the MSA certifier of those seeking certification.
2019 Clinicians:  TBA
2019 rates
$25 per rider if payment is received by 2/22…  $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.
