We are extremely excited to announce that our 2019 Gait To Success Dressage Clinic will take place on October 19 and 20, 2019 at Horse In Hand Ranch in Blackfalds, AB.
As the government recognized provincial sport organization for equestrians, we pride ourselves in being the premier resource for education, information, and support for the entire Alberta equine community. One of the many benefits that we offer to our community is affordable opportunities to learn from world-class equestrians in various disciplines. Gait To Success is one of those opportunities that has been incredibly well-received by the community. With an annual event consisting of both a jump and dressage clinic, the goal is to help foster growth of our grassroots athletes and coaches. We have made the commitment each year to secure a high-level clinician in both of these disciplines, and we are incredibly excited to announce that our highly esteemed dressage clinician for this year will be Belinda Trussell!
One of the dressage world’s shining stars, Belinda has represented Canada at two Olympic Games, the World Cup, four World Equestrian Games, and the European Championships. She was a member of the Silver Medal winning team at the 2015 Pan
An elite rider in every sense of the word, Belinda has a sixth sense for competition riding that allows her not only to excel with her own horses, but to share her wisdom and competition strategies to guide her students to success after success in the show ring. Equestrian Canada honoured Belinda as Canadian Dressage Athlete of the Year for 2016.
Eight rider spots will be available, as well as an unlimited number of auditor spots! Lunch, beverages, and snacks will be provided both days. All accepted riders will also receive an amazing swag bag packed with loads of goodies!
In addition to hosting our amazing clinician, the AEF is proud to have some awesome onsite vendors including Equestrian Fashion Outfitters – Red Deer, Saltaire Equestrian Haus, and Equus Physio!
Special thank you goes to The Horse Store for their generous donation towards our clinic riders, providing each rider with a top-quality sheepskin lined dressage pad!
