and Excelso competing Grand Prix at Dressage at Devon 2008. Excel and
Andrea competed in over 70 Grand Prix in their career together, winning
28 and placing top 3 in over 50 others.
This is our first of two clinics with Andrea Velas for 2017.
We are very excited to announce two clinics with Andrea Velas! Based in Dillsburg, PA at the esteemed Pennsylvania Riding Academy, Andrea is a long-time student and Assistant Trainer to Paul Belasik, highly respected international rider, trainer, writer and teacher, and an avowed proponent of classical equestrian ideals.
Andrea is a very accomplished rider and trainer, having taken several horses from unbroken to Grand Prix, and is one of the few US riders to have earned all six Gold, Silver, and Bronze USDF Medals and Freestyle Bars.
Andrea has a gift for making classical dressage concepts understandable and accessible to riders of all ages and levels. She quickly identifies the root issues and gives straightforward exercises to fix them. This lays a solid foundation from which the horse and rider can move up the levels. Riders come away from her lessons understanding what they worked on and what they need to do to keep moving forward. For more information about Andrea, read her bio on the PA Riding Academy website: http://paulbelasik.com/AndreaBio.html.
This clinic is open to riders and auditors (bring a chair) and includes lunch.
Cost: $150 for a 45 minute private lesson $25 to audit $20 for a day stall
$25 deposit to reserve a riding spot. Balance will be due by April 15. Auditors are strongly encouraged to register ahead so that we have a head count for lunch.
