A Feast of Education and Fun with Eric Smiley

Eric Smiley is a world-class trainer, FEI official and coach of the 2012 Belgium Olympic event team, holding the highest teaching qualification in the world with only 59 or so qualified.  As a BHS Chief Examiner, he is one of the few elite who have been awarded the highest BHS achievable teaching qualification, a BE Master Coach (one of only 15), Director of the International Eventing Forum and a 3*/ 4* FEI Judge. He has successfully competed at Badminton and Burghley on horses he has bred and trained, and he currently competes at the Advanced level. 

Eric is coming to Aiken for nine days, a great opportunity to spend time with someone who loves making horsemanship more clear, finding a simple way for horse and rider to enjoy their passion. Auditing is always fun, as he is very interactive and makes it clear why things happen.

There are opportunities for all, from camps to private lessons, Beginner Novice through Advanced.

Attendance is filling up quickly so please send in your registration form and deposit to hold your spot!


Here's a great group of photos from Pamela Eckleberg of Hoofpix!

2/24-25/2014 George Morris Clinic!

In collaboration with Boyd Martin Eventing, George Morris taught a 2 day clinic to resident upper level riders in the Bridle Creek Community. The day was a huge success, hosting a large group of auditors and many familiar upper level event riders!

"On Monday and Tuesday some of the top eventing riders in Aiken were treated to an awesome clinic by the Master of Equitation, George Morris. George worked on course analysis and course riding in this particular clinic."
