Registration is closed

Closing Date:  May 13

CLOSING SOON!  Don't miss out on this fantastic opportunity!  Sign up today to ride with Anne Moss at the lovely Morningside in The Plains.  Spend the day riding, learning, wrapping and prepping with National Examiners on hand to help, guide and instruct.  

FIVE Mounted Preps, hosted by VRPC, are scheduled May through September.  These clinics, taught by USPC National Examiners from around the country, are geared toward those VRPC members who are interested in testing at the national level in 2018. 

Statistics show that clinic attendees pass at a much higher rate than those who have not taken advantage of these prep clinic opportunities! Sign up now!

The schedule will generally have one flat and one jump session, or two flats for the dressage per prep day. In addition, longeing and bandaging, plus a few new programs, will be fit in mid-day.  These are sections that riders often fail, so this is a chance to recieve some excellent, supervised practice. You will get the most out of a day-long attendance commitment. Attending these preps with other members builds comraderie and encourages learning through auditing, as well. Attendees often get unexpected instruction at setting fences correctly,  developing your eye, etc. 

While these sessions are tailored to the C2 and above, mature members age 12 and up who are rising through the levels, are welcome to attend if space allows.  VRPC members are also welcome to audit.  

Location:  Morningside Training Farm, The Plains

Clinician:  Anne Moss

Cost:  $75 (in region), $100 (out of region)
