The RDDA is pleased to announce that Irene Hammon will be in Regina for a Freestyle Clinic on April 1st and 2nd. Irene Hammon is an associate of Karen Robinson who works with the lower level Freestyle development. There will be a Social on Friday, March 30th at the home of Loreen Larson with Irene where examples of Freestyles will be reviewed. The Social will be free for participants in the Clinic and RDDA members. For non-members the cost is $20. (Better value to just join the RDDA!) There will be free auditing for RDDA members - $20/day for non-members).
The actual mounted Clinic will be held at Glen Valley Stables located near Lumsden. There are limited stalls available overnight at $45. Please go to Irene’s website at http://www.applausedressage.com.com to see more information on her Freestyle program development and her rates for designing a Freestyle. Participants will spend the first day working with Irene selecting music and the second day (Sunday) working on Choreography. If a participant goes on to request a completed Freestyle, Irene will apply a $100 discount towards it.
We will be able to enroll 8 participants in Individual sessions with Irene. The cost of the 2-day Clinic will be $300. Depending on interest, there is another type of session that Irene will do. 2 riders could enroll in a "Find your Rhythm" session in which Irene would select music for Walk Trot and Canter for a rider to use while training. The cost of that 2-day Clinic would be $150 per rider. If the participants want a CD made after the Clinic, Irene will also give a discount for a customized CD. (Please refer to her website for more information).
If anyone is interested in participating, please contact Loreen Larson ASAP as there are limited spots available. Also please RSVP Loreen if you are planning to attend the Friday Social:
