JUDGING: I am available to judge dressage schooling shows, intercollegiate dressage shows, the dressage portion of 2-phase and 3-phase events, and Pony Club dressage rallies. I am currently in training to be a USEF “r” Judge and am willing to travel throughout New England to judge. During the winter months I also work in Florida/Georgia.
“The Kennebec Morgan Farm has had Sandy back year after year to judge our fall/winter schooling show because she is a positive, fair, and fun judge to have at our show! On top of her fun attitude, she always has good advice and comments to help the competitors ride a better test.” -Margaret Bailey (show secretary & competitor)
CLINICS: I strive to be positive and clear in my approach and give helpful feedback and exercises for riders to improve. Choose from two clinic options:
- Begin the Dance Clinic: Includes an optional morning lecture with individual lessons for each participant before lunch. After lunch there is an optional Q & A session followed by individual lessons. The clinic manager has the option of scheduling individual afternoon lessons focusing on developing a musical freestyle or grouping participants together to learn the basics of quadrille riding. Auditors are encouraged as well as musical demos during lunch.
- Ride-A-Test: Very popular for riders that are preparing for show season. I judge the rider’s test, give verbal feedback about the scores and a 20 minute lesson on how to improve.
“Sandra has been coming to my farm for a few years now. Her teaching style and expertise are absolutely amazing. Her knowledge and passion for horses and horse training is shown in how she works with the horses or horse and rider. She has an amazing natural talent for both teaching horse and rider. I look forward to each time she comes to the farm and what I can learn from her. Sandra is a true inspiration to me and my business and I am so thankful for her mentoring and friendship.” -Britt Radley (owner of Salt Pond Farm in Vinalhaven, ME)
INSTRUCTION: I love to teach dressage to all ages and levels of riders. I think it is very important to teach young riders the basics so they get started correctly, making it easier to learn the more advanced concepts later on. Equally important is how the adult amateur makes progress, sometimes needing help with sports psychology and theory to help overcome difficulties. I am passionate about dressage to music so I try to organize quadrille lessons to encourage dressage riders to have more fun! I am willing travel to your home/facility to give group and private lessons. Discount rates available for groups/clinics.
