The Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA), in partnership with the United States Hunter Jumper Association (USHJA) offers a clinic series called CORE (Cultivating Our Riders' Education). These clinics offer enhanced opportunities to educate students in grades 6-12 and college riders about horsemanship and riding in a draw-based (catch-ride) format.
Each CORE clinic will include instruction and testing in stable management and equine care, as well as mounted riding instruction. Mounted instruction will emphasize draw-based/catch riding techniques. In addition, nationally acclaimed equine instructors will give general instruction on equitation and riding skills.
Riding spots for the clinics are for USHJA Active, USHJA Collegiate or USHJA Scholastic Members and IEA Members who compete at the Intermediate or Open levels. Auditing for the clinics must be reserved in advance and is free to any IEA or USHJA Members. Non-members may be charged a fee for auditing the clinic. Upcoming CORE clinics in 2017 are as follows:
September 1 - 3, 2017
Texas Rose Horse Park
Melanie Smith Taylor - USHJA Certified Trainer & Olympic Gold Medalist
