Looking for ideas for a spring clinician. Someone with a dressage focus, but who also does a good job with jumping. Nobody is high level, but they are educated. Assorted quality horses. Not eventers, but some show dressage and some jumpers. Dressage riders are the more serious of the bunch.
Last year had Dale Irwin...really liked him, but would like to explore other options.
Canadian preferred, but someone near a major airport hub fine too (for cheaper airfare)
She's fantastic. She expects you to get your shit together, but she's funny, great with all levels, very clear in her instruction and has a tried and true method of "do a+b and now... c." She teaches us twice a year in Nashville and is very invested in our success and doesn't just "teach a clinic." She does what we need to produce what we're struggling with and fix it.
Both AlbertaEventer and I ride prelim and school with Sandy. I just think of it as quality flat work- for us he bases more on a dressage sense then those who ride hunters. He's very thorough and has certainly improved my ride immensely- and he's good on the psychology side of the ride as well which is my weak spot. He's in the area usually once a month or so if you were to look at "borrowing" him from other clinic hosters.
