German Certified Master Saddler, Saddle Ergonomist, founder of Schleese Saddlery Service (1986) and Saddlefit 4 Life (2006), Jochen Schleese works passionately for the well-being for horse and rider. Jochen calls on all those involved in caring for and working with horses (riders, veterinarians, trainers, farriers, saddle fitters) to not only educate themselves on the detrimental impact of poor saddle fit, but to also find ways to work cooperatively together toward a better and healthier future for horses and riders. Over 25 years of research and industry experience is detailed in Jochen’s books, ‘THE SILENT KILLER’ (2012), ‘SUFFERING IN SILENCE: ‘The Saddle Fit Link to Physical and Psychological Trauma in Horses’ (2013) and DVD ‘Beyond the 9 Points of Saddle Fitting’ (2012).

All donations are tax-deductible. Checks should be made out directly to the USET Foundation. The theme for this year’s benefit is “Prancing with the Stars” and will include short dance routines from famous riders and judges that will be auctioned off to the audience after each performance. Before the auction begins, however, the “Prancing” judges will give their evaluation of each act.

Great Britain's Charlotte Dujardin is the darling of the dressage world. With a story that reads like a fairy tale, she rose from young stable groom to stand on top of the world as she swept the Team and Individual Gold Medals at the 2012 London Olympic Games aboard the charismatic Dutch Warmblood gelding Valegro, a horse she developed through the ranks from the time he was a youngster. This endearing pair has won the hearts of millions and continue to set world records when they step into the international dressage arena. Now, in an exclusive opportunity, Charlotte comes to the U.S. for the very first time as a clinician to share her secrets for success as part of a very special dressage symposium to be held March 8 - 9, 2014 at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center in Burbank, California. "I am so excited to come to the U.S.," said Dujardin. "With the increasing popularity of the sport, I am looking forward to seeing some great riders, and to teach what could be the next generation of international riders is a real privilege."

Kyra Kyrklund taught the clinic through fun metaphors with a method of particular systematic exercises to clearly teach a horse a competition movement for the International Dressage Arena. From beginner to advanced rider, she showed a caring yet firm rooted nature in making sure the horse’s back swings long over the topline and not from a long underline. Whether rider position or horse position, she went right to work in finding the one thing at a time to help the rider or the horse. A great clinician with great visual examples to make her point, Kyra made an understandable change to improve the horse’s way of going in a more correct way in order to find the path through the levels in dressage.

The 2014 Succeed©/USDF FEI Level Trainer’s Conference led by Steffen Peters and Scott Hassler, yet again proved to be two days of tips that really give the audience a view inside the mind of Steffen Peters, who not only competes as a successful rider in the competition arena at the highest level, but also trains horses from the very beginning. As Steffen worked through a problem either while riding a horse or coaching, he explained moment by moment the decision he makes and why. The tips are clear, concise and simple. The most important advice: 1. be sure your horse’s mind is engaged at all times, 2. pick and keep one neck position during a ride, 3. drive forward off a quick aid within a movement, 4. test the horse and try to simplify the aids through every exercise. Taking place at Mary Anne McPhail’s High Meadow Farm in Loxahatchee, Florida, the conference featured seven different horses and riders from all stages of development and over 200 audience attendees. Here is a glimpse inside the conference.
