Program Description:

 

Open to all Level 4-7 riders in the Northwest Region, this Intro to Jumping clinic. The clinic will take place at Moon Valley Quarter Horse, located north of Drayton Valley on Hwy 22 and Twp Rd 514.  Please fill in the registration form and waiver by Dec. 5th (attached).

We are happy that we could get Janice Gagnon and her daughter Daylce Gagnon to be the clinicians for our upcoming jump clinic. They have years in the saddle, judging experience, and a wealth of 4H knowledge. 

A brief overview of what will be happening,

Jan 5- Flat work and theory, with more focus on hunter than jumper technique. Get to know your strides, where to place your horse, and body positions. (you can always add speed later).

Jan 6- Setting up your own jumps with proper strides, how you’re being judged, braiding and turn out for hunter and English classes.

There will be an 8-fence course set up to work on what you have learned.  

Clinic is geared for Intro to jumping rather than focusing on 4 foot jumps, clinician wants ensure members and horses are ready for the big jumps with a focus on safety. That being said if you feel you would like to try or have questions about the bigger jumps or if you would like to see something added to this weekend please let me know. 

Cost for clinic is covered by the Northwest Region Horse Committee, adults will be asked to cover meal cost @ $20/day (breakfast & lunch). Please etransfer northwest4Htreasurer@gmail.com using password cleaver and include in message that who registration is for and that it is for jump clinic.   

Clinic Date January 5 and 6th 2019 - Registration deadline December 5, 2018 

All members, riding or auditing, along with guardians, will act in accordance to 4H rules and regulations.  Guardians should accompany their members or have someone at the clinic that can.
