WWU Plans Annual Equestrian Studies Academic Showcase



FULTON, MO – Grand Prix rider, trainer and instructor Pierre St. Jacques will be the featured clinician at William Woods University’s annual Equestrian Studies Academic Showcase Nov. 14.

The showcase is aimed at prospective students interested in studying for a career in the equestrian industry. It will include barn and campus tours and equestrian-related presentations.

Registration begins at 8 a.m., and events will take place from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. The office of admissions will be open Sunday, Nov. 15, from 9 a.m. until noon for any follow-up questions.

The featured clinician, St. Jacques, has been riding and training horses for more than 20 years. He began his dressage training with Olympic medalist Carol Lavell and now trains with Klaus Balkenhol, coach of the United States Equestrian Team.

In 2003, St. Jacques and his horse Lucky Tiger were fifth in the Intermediare I Championships and won a spot on the USA Pan American Team. They went on to win the team gold at the 2003 Pan American Games, held in the Dominican Republic. They were also the top placed U.S. horse and rider in the Intermediare I.

St. Jacques is known for his work with stallions and his ability to successfully train difficult, yet talented, horses and bring them to their full potential.

Also scheduled are multiple presentations on the equestrian studies division, equine scholarship opportunities and more. Current WWU equestrian students will model appropriate lesson and show riding attire and answer questions about their studies. Break-out sessions will be held in all four disciplines- western, saddleseat, dressage and hunter/jumper. There will also be presentations on student life, Greek life and residential life.
