Local judge and trainer Rita Brown will be one of the two clinicians at the 2018 CRDA Adult Camp. And of course, Lynne Kimball Davis is returning by popular demand! Camp provides a friendly learning environment with a range of riders working from training level to FEI. The campers find support from both the clinicians and the other campers. Their goals have included increasing their horses’ adjustability, improving their dressage scores and enjoying the comradery of the camp atmosphere. CRDA Adult Camp is open to both adult amateurs and professionals. Auditors are welcomed and encouraged!
Camp is a two-day event that includes a 45-minute private lesson each morning, followed by a 30-minute private lesson each afternoon, with alternating instructors. The entry fee includes a continental breakfast and lunch on both Saturday and Sunday. Overnight and day stabling is available at Apple Knoll Farm for an additional fee.
About the Clinicians
Lynne Kimball Davis is a USDF Bronze, Silver, and Gold medalist. She trained extensively in England and Austria and is a British Horse Society Intermediate Instructor. She trained and competed many horses to FEI levels, most notably Pompidou (Piet), whom Ulla Salzgeber purchased as an 8-year-old and successfully competed in his first two Grand Prix in Germany. Originally from Natick, MA, Lynne now lives and trains full-time in Wellington, Florida. She has coached many students to the FEI levels, and she helped numerous students earn their Bronze and Silver Medals, and has a current student who is one score away from earning her Gold Medal. Lynne is bringing along her stunning (and huge) 7-year-old gelding, Shanghai, with coaching from Susan Jaccoma and Volker Brommann. Lynne is known for building confidence in riders of all levels and is a long-time favorite clinician.
