CADORA Inc. is delighted to announce that for this 13th year, Stephen Clarke has agreed to come to Canada to perform his magic at our annual clinics. This year the timing has changed from past years as the first clinic will be held on June 23-24 at Fairlawn Farm in Brentwood Bay, BC; the second will be on October 13-14 at Queenswood Stables in Navan, Ontario; and the third clinic will take place on October 20-21 at the Keystone Centre in Brandon, Manitoba. On the Friday evening before each clinic, Stephen will be giving an Educate Your Eye classroom session. With his knowledge, tact, and well-known humour, these will certainly be evenings to look forward to and remember for a very long time.
The Stephen Clarke clinics are organized by national CADORA Inc. but it is the local CADORA groups who manage the individual clinics. CADORA club members are given rider priority provided they have achieved certain competitive scores, followed by Level 3 coaches, their students, junior and young riders, amateurs, and young horses. The intent is that these clinics are representative of a cross-section of riders and horses at all levels and ages who are currently competing or working toward competing. These are not demonstration clinics; each rider with their horse has an individual lesson and is limited to one ride only. Auditors are welcome so they may observe and learn how improvements at all levels can be achieved.
We feel honoured that Stephen Clarke, the current FEI Judge General, continues to enjoy our venues, organisers, riders and horses so much that he has kept returning to Canada for our annual CADORA clinics.
