2014 VPF Saddle Seat Clinic



Steve & May Chadick of Vantage Point Farm, LLC are pleased to announce their 2014 Saddle Seat Clinic. This year’s event will feature world-renowned trainer/instructors, Smith & Alexandra Lilly. Producers of numerous World Champion horses & riders in nearly every division, Smith and Alexandra will bring their vast knowledge & outstanding skills featured in the book, Saddle Seat Horsemanship to share with the Texas audience.

The clinic will be held at the Lone Star Expo Center Equestrian facilities in Conroe, Texas on Friday & Saturday, February 7th & 8th. A special & first time-ever feature for this years’ clinic is a special In-Hand section that will be held on Saturday morning. This session is designed to help the amateur breeder/owner/handler gain knowledge about the preparation, training & showing of futurity colts.   25% of each In-Hand participants’ tuition will be donated to the Amateur Futurity of Texas. Finally, the weekend will wrap up with a schooling show on Sunday morning, in which participants can practice their skills learned during the clinic & obtain valuable show ring advice afterwards from the Lillys. 

The VPF Clinic is an annual winter event that is open to all Saddle Seat riders of any breed. This popular event serves as a great learning tool & is the perfect place to perfect your skills before show season kicks off in early March. A limited number of lesson horses will be available for lease for riders who would like to participate but can’t do so on their own mount. The Lone Star Expo Center is conveniently located just North of Houston and has several hotels & wonderful restaurants nearby.

Please contact May Chadick for further information & clinic registration. (281) 787-9051 or mgizmoklein@att.net
