Del Mar, Calif. – March 21, 2017 – SH Productions is proud to announce the schedule for the 4th Annual West Coast Dressage Convention featuring Olympic gold medalist Carl Hester MBE as the headline clinician. The two-day educational clinic will take place April 8-9 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in Del Mar, California. The clinic will draw more than 1,200 auditors from across the West Coast of the United States and Canada, who will enjoy an unparalleled opportunity to learn from one of the best dressage trainers in the world.
“Each year we host a different headliner, and in previous years we have had Anky Van Grunsven, Charlotte Dujardin and Adelinde Cornelissen,” President and CEO of SH Productions Inc., Scott Hayes, explained. “We are very excited to host our 4th Annual West Coast Dressage Convention with Carl Hester as he is one of the most sought-after clinicians in the world.”
Olympian and European champion, Hester is part owner of Valegro, the world-record holding mount of student Charlotte Dujardin, and Hester’s influence helped shape the success of the talented pair.
“The West Coast Dressage Convention is a unique learning opportunity because it is a two-day, up-through-the-levels symposium,” Hayes continued. “It’s a relatable experience for auditors as they watch riders Carl hand selected. He has chosen a wide range of horses that represent many levels of the training scale with different breeds, as well as adult amateurs and professional riders.”
In addition to watching lessons with Hester, spectators will also have the opportunity to learn from various demonstrations. SH Productions is thrilled to have U.S. Young Horse Coach Christine Traurig give a demonstration on young horse development and she will also be discussing the addition of the FEI 7-year-old Test.
