Fun for riders of all levels. Practice cross-country jumps in prep for Aug. 6 hunter trials!

Learn from an accomplished eventer and Master of Foxhounds, Hilary Popiel. Riders of all levels welcome. This clinic is a great way to introduce yourself or your horse to cross country obstacles or, if you are more experienced, to get pointers from a rider who has trained with eventing legends. OVH will host hunter trials on site the weekend after, so you can put your skills to use right after!

  • Groups of max. 5 riders at 9 am, 10:30 am, noon, 2 pm and 3:30 pm. The groups are formed based on the rider and horse experience levels indicated in the registration form.
  • Location: 8935 Abb Road, Ashton, ON K0A 1B0
  • Cost: $130 (includes HST) for adults and $65 (includes HST) for juniors

Proper helmet is required and bring lots of water for your horse. There will be a lunch break from 1:30 until 2:00 with sandwiches and drinks in the club house.

In 2003 she was named to the Canadian Talent Squad and granted lessons with the then Olympic Team Coach Jimmy Wofford. At the time she was ranked 8th in Canada and 132nd in the world. Since then, she has had clinics from Lucinda Green, Ian Millar, Philip Dutton, Boyd Martin, Sylva Martin, Peter Gray and many more.
