We will setup a payment plan early in 2017. You are not obligated to ride until the first payment is made. If you cannot ride because of the October date, or for any other reason, please email Arden Evans at so we can free up your spot for someone else. It is important that we have as many riders as possible (up to the maximum number of 10 riders.)

 In this clinic, Sandra will discuss and demystify some major concepts and principles of dressage including explaining what dressage is, using the dressage pyramid, how to ride a test, things the judges look for, as well as many other “things you’ve been wondering about but were afraid to ask”.  Topics may include difference in “types” of gaits, use of the outside rein, and half halts depending upon rider’s experience level and interest.  Please send any questions you may have to Sandy so she can include them in her discussion.
This is a riding clinic, where so participants will ride in groups of 3 or 4 and practice each of the concepts as Sandra explains them.  It is open to both traditional and western dressage riders as well as riders with no experience in dressage, and all breeds of horses are welcome.
There is a minimum requirement of 8 riders for us to put on the clinic. .You will be able to sign-up for the clinic  on the Paso Del Norte Dressage Society Website:
