The Festival is Here!
After months of planning, the week of the Lendon Youth Dressage Festival has finally arrived!
"I am so excited to be doing the first clinic. We had some wonderful applications — what a multi-talented group of young people we have. I already know some of the riders and know of their talent, but I am hoping to find a least one diamond in the rough – someone who hasn’t had the opportunity to demonstrate her considerable talent. Having another Youth Dressage Festival after the clinic gives Courtney and myself a chance to watch these riders in competition, a real bonus. Thank you Hampton Green Farm for making all of this possible."
The riders for the Emerging Dressage Athlete Section A Clinic have been selected. They are:
Madelyn Guthrie Westmont, IL, Trainer: Agata Rekucka

The Lendon Youth Dressage Festival will be on Sunday and is open to the public. The riders will begin the morning with a Written Exam, followed by Dressage and Equitation classes. The Awards Ceremony will be held at 5.30 PM.
