We are very excited to announce that we will be hosting a clinic taught by Greg Best on February 1st and 2nd. Here is some information on him: (provided by Wikipedia)

Gregory Alan 'Greg' Best (born July 23, 1964 in Lynchburg, Virginia) is an equestrian competitor and coach in the sport of show jumping who is best known for winning two silver medals for the United States in the 1988 Summer Olympic Games in Seoul, South Korea riding the famous Gem Twist. In 1992, Best suffered a fall that shattered his shoulder. After this, he moved to New Zealand, where he rode for the New Zealand League, winning the World Cup Series. He has also served as a New Zealand National Show Jumping Selector, a National Show Jumping Coach and a member of the New Zealand Show Jumping High Performance Committee.] Best coached New Zealand's jumpers for the 2004 Summer Olympic Games in Athens. Between 1987 and 2003, Best also garnered 6 FEI World Cup wins. He now conducts coaching clinics in the United States and New Zealand. Along with Gem Twist, horses named Santos and Entrepreneur have been among his champion mounts.

There will be no lessons on those days. I want to encourage all students to come watch if possible. There will be an auditing fee, probably around $25. I will let everyone know when I have the info. 

Breeches for sale in the office. Many different sizes, in good shape. $5 donation each. Thanks!
