Calgary, Alberta – The management of Rocky Mountain Show Jumping, along with Equestrian Events Design, is pleased at this time to announce that they will be hosting a special clinic with the 2010 World Champion of Show Jumping, Philippe Le Jeune of Belgium.
“We wanted to do something special this year to thank all of the exhibitors who have joined us this year at our competitions, and teaming up with Bea Jarzynska of Equestrian Events Design to bring the World Champion to Anderson Ranch seems like a great thing to do for those who support us here all year long” explained John Anderson of Rocky Mountain Show Jumping.
“I heard about Rocky Mountain Show Jumping from friends of mine and took a trip to Calgary during one of John’s shows earlier this year and thought it would be an excellent place for Philippe to teach a Clinic. He did one in Quebec earlier in the year, and it was a tremendous success, and John said, “Well if it’s good enough for the great folks in Eastern Canada, it’s good enough for me. Let’s do it!” said Bea of Equestrian Events Design.
The clinic is being hosted at the conclusion of the third Rocky Mountain Classic, and just prior to the Spruce Meadows Masters. As a means of thanking competitors who have competed at the Classics, it will be offered to them first before other entries are considered. “It is important that we treat our competitors well here at our events, and we try so hard to do new and innovative things at all of our tournaments to keep them exciting”
It will be open to everyone that wishes to audit, and a good audience is anticipated. There will be a dinner following the first evening of the Clinic hosted either in the new “Goby’s Grill,” or the VIP tent depending on the amount of interest. The dinner will also be a fundraiser with proceeds going to Just World International.
Each day, there will be an autograph session with Philippe, and a Goodbye Cocktail Party will be hosted following the Clinic completion on Tuesday!
Riders in the clinic will receive one ticket to the dinner, a stall with shavings included, an autographed custom Ogilvy Equestrian saddle pad along with a commemorative hat.
Special thanks goes out to CWD, Gaitpost Magazine, EQ Barns, Dragon Media Group, Ogilvy Equestrian, and the Canadian Equestrian Development League, who have generously leant their support to this great event.
