Equestrian Studies Department to Host USDF Clinic


September 18, 2012



Averett University's equestrian studies department will host a clinic for members of the United States Dressage Federation (USDF) Saturday, Oct. 6 and Sunday, Oct. 7 from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. at the Equestrian Center. Lilo Fore, a judge and popular trainer, will serve as the clinician for the clinic.

Each rider will receive eight private lessons, lasting 30-35 minutes, in a symposium style format. The clinic will also offer a lecture. These adult clinics fulfill an important goal of USDF to educate all of the riding public on the benefits of classical dressage.

Fore is an FEI"I" judge and began her judging career in 1974. She is also an FEI-level instructor/trainer, FEI 4 dressage judge and sport horse breeder. She owns a dressage training facility in Santa Rosa, Calif. and helped to develop the USDF Instructor Certification Program. Her students are now successful professionals, and the horses she has bred have earned Grand Champion and Champion awards in breed shows in the United States and Canada.
