General Information for Riders

  • Pick the level that you want to ride.
  • Bring a list of the required movements for that level with you to the clinic. (Plus you can practice them before the clinic!) 
  • Cynthia will create your choreography and will select music that matches your horse's movements during the clinic. 
  • When you leave the clinic, you will get the choreography, but not the music. 
  • If you want to reserve the music, there is an additional fee that ranges from $800 to $1200.  However, you will need to have someone video your practice rides (this can be with a smart phone) so that Cynthia can put it all together and send you a final copy of your choreography after the clinic. 
  • Many riders use the music Cynthia selected for them during the clinic but do not hire Cynthia to reserve the music or to put the music to the choreography after the clinic, thus, they do not pay the additional fee.
