This clinic is a great opportunity to polish up your tests for the 2018 season. USEF dressage tests from Intro through 4th level will be offered in addition to the new 2018 USEA Beginner Novice through Preliminary eventing tests. The format of the clinic will allow riders to perform their test of choice twice, receiving constructive feedback from Ann Marie after the first ride. They will be given a scored sheet for their second ride, and prizes will be awarded for the lowest scoring percentages of the day. Both standard and small dressage rings (depending on test) will be offered indoors on world class GGT footing.
A USEF licensed judge and an eventing judge, Anne Marie Gregoire has been judging, training riders and horses, and offering clinics in the northeast region and beyond for over twenty years. Her judging experience gives her students an edge, as she knows first hand what is expected in competition. A four-time participant in USDF Instructor Seminars with Major Anders Lindgren, she received 7’s and 8’s for knowledge and instruction. She is also certified in Centered Riding Instruction.
In addition to her Trakehners, she has successfully competed Arabians, Quarter Horses, Draft crosses and even a North American Spotted Draft in the dressage ring. And although dressage is her primary discipline, she has ridden and trained three and five-gated saddle horses, hunters, jumpers and western reining horses. She finds dressage to be the most fascinating discipline, because traditional training can be used to improve every horse no matter what his ultimate job is. She believes that any breed of horse can do dressage. In the lower levels, correct training can and should enable most horses to compete successfully with even the best of movers. Dressage is, after all, training - not just fancy movement.
