Novice Steeplechase Clinic

Sunday March 7, 2021 – Prospect Farm – 12:00 pm

*Jumping and previous race experience are not required to attend this clinic.

2021 Clinicians:

Billy Santoro, Alicia Murphy, Todd and Blair Wyatt, Mark Beecher, and Sean McDermott

This steeplechase racing clinic for novice riders (16 and under) 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 clinicians. 

We will work with young riders 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.
