On September 22, CFC Farm & Home Center and Pace-Maker Horse Feeds will again sponsor the Mary Schwentker Cross Country Clinic at Win Green Farm in Rhoadesville, Virginia.
For several years, Mary Schwentker has been putting riders and horses through their paces at this annual cross country clinic. Ms. Schwentker, an international 3-day event competitor and trainer, has competed successfully at the international level, including the Rolex Kentucky Three Day Event, Fair Hill International, Radnor Hunt Three Day, and Essex Three Day. Her enthusiasm and love of the sport is also apparent in her teaching.
Win Green Farm offers Eventing features such as water jumps with multiple approaches, banks and ditches, sunken road, Weldon’s Wall, skinnies, and more. Also included is a Trakenher designed to challenge the rider, but not trouble the horse, plus confidence building and straight-forward log jumps. You don’t have to be a 3-day event competitor to benefit from training at the Mary Schwentker Cross Country Course, and riders of all experience levels are welcome.
Registration is $85, and includes rider, horse, and one auditor. Individual auditor registration is $10. Lunch is included in registration fees.
Registration forms can be picked up at any CFC Farm and Home Center, or online at www.cfcfarmhome.com. Pre-registration is required. The registration deadline is September 14, 2012.
Return your completed form, along with a copy of your current Coggins certificate and a check payable to CFC Farm & Home Center, to CFC Farm & Home Center, PO Box 85, Bealeton, VA 22712 Attn: Sharon Piatt. You can reach Sharon Piatt at 540-439-3254 or via email at email@example.com.
Riders will be divided into small groups, according to experience levels, and assigned 2-hour riding sessions. You will be notified by email or phone when your session is scheduled. Helmets, vest and boots must be worn when riding. A rain date September 23, 2012 has been set.
Win Green Farm is located 20 minutes southeast of Culpeper.
