May 4-5 (Saturday-Sunday)
July 12-14 (Friday – Sunday)
October 4-6 (Friday-Sunday)

This program includes two mounted sessions and various unmounted seminars per day. The schedule caters towards individual goals, riders will select their lesson focus for each day ranging from Dressage, Stadium, Grid Work, XC, Pace Work, etc. The schedule is loose to allow for flexibility so participants can tailor it to their own wants / needs. There are two lessons a day, typically one dressage and one jump set, but some have chosen to double up dressage lessons and that is fine. Mounted lessons are composed of small groups compiled together based on skill sets and similar goals.
