Talbot Run – Dressage Clinic with Phoebe Devoe – May 15

Cost : $80 for a 45 minute private

$65 for a semi private (two riders) – We will try to match up riders

$15 additional if you need to borrow a Talbot Run Horse

Phoebe has trained and competed many dozens of horses at the USDF and FEI levels, earning her the USDF Bronze Medal, USDF Silver Medal and USDF Musical Freestyle Bronze Bar. She has attended the regional CBLM and GAIG/USDF Championships with a long list of mounts. In addition to technical test riding, she has choreographed and successfully competed musical freestyles, pas de deuxs, and quadrilles.

Phoebe’s love of competition naturally led her into a desire to teach lessons. With over 20 years of teaching experience, Phoebe’s instruction always relates to the training scale, biomechanics of the horse and rider, and the correctness that the movements develop from the basics. Thornridge Manor has been awarded MDA Trainer of the Year for every year that their students have competed.

In addition to riding and teaching, Phoebe began her journey as a judge in 1999, when she completed the L Program with distinction. She received her “r” status in 2006.
