The Weekend Educational Program is only weeks away. Here are the details:

January 31 – February 1, 2015
Nonnewaug High School, Woodbury, CT
For Riders of All Disciplines and Levels, Instructors, and Parents.

Designed for riders of all ages, disciplines, and levels; parents; and trainers, the Weekend Educational Program seeks to include everyone from the horse community, and the two-day event provides great networking opportunities with fellow riders and trainers from multiple disciplines.

This year Dressage4Kids welcomes international dressage competitor Laura Graves as a keynote speaker. At the recent World Equestrian Games, Laura finished 5th in the Grand Prix Musical Freestyle and was the highest placed member of the US Dressage Team. She has brought her outstanding horse, Verdades, from a youngster to competing at Grand Prix. We are so pleased that she can come to talk to us given her busy schedule.

We also welcome inspirational speaker and mountain climber, Donna Decker, who has climbed the highest mountains on all seven continents and completed a successful summit of the world’s tallest mountain, Mount Everest, in 2012. We all learn so much from a successful person in any field, and look forward to hearing from Donna.
