USDF Instructor-Trainer Development Program 2024

CDA is running 3 seminars for this program

We very much hope that this program is well-attended, as it is designed to educate dressage riders of all levels--both amateurs and professionals who wish to further their education in the classical system of dressage.

At each seminar, Day 1 is geared toward a general audience and large group and features lecture and demonstration rides under the guidance and instruction by the two clinicians. It is a unique opportunity to watch, listen and learn as the training scale and principles of dressage are analyzed. Day 2 is limited to 8 participants and is geared toward those who, in a more 'hands-on' situation--may be interested in furthering their professional development and eventually moving on to certification.

Seminar dates are:

-  April 21-22 (Sunday/Monday) Lungeing Seminar; with Ann Guptill and Vicki Hammers-O'Neil at Fox Ledge Farm, East Haddam, CT.

- July 14-15 (Sunday/Monday) Riding Seminar; with Bill McMullin and Vicki Hammers-O'Neil at Weatogue Stables, Salisbury, CT.

- August 10-11 (Saturday/Sunday) Teaching Seminar; with Bill McMullin and Sarah Geikie at Sperry View Farm, Bethany, CT.
