COCHRANVILLE, Pa. — The Fair Hill Thoroughbred Horse Show will hold a clinic with Anne Kursinski Nov. 24 -25 at Fox Crossing Stables in Cochranville, Pa.
Competitors in the Fair Hill Thoroughbred Horse Show, being held Sept. 22 and 23 at Fair Hill, Md. are invited to submit their name for inclusion in a drawing to attend the clinic for free.
As there are a limited number of openings in the clinic, competitors will receive a ticket that they may submit, if they wish, to the drawing that will determine the clinic participants. By submitting the ticket, competitors agree to the following rules:
1. Be available to participate in the clinic on Nov. 24-25.
2. Several sessions, arranged by jumping height, will be offered. Submit your ticket to the session of your choosing (no more than one session). Should there be insufficient participants at a given height, a duplicate session at another height will be offered.
3. Clinic participants in each session will be determined via a drawing and will be notified in October.
4. Participation in the clinic is non-transferrable (i.e. you may not give your slot to another rider.)
5. Participants do not need to ride the same horse in the clinic that was competed on at the show, however the alternate horse must be a Thoroughbred.
Anne Kursinski is one of the all-time leading riders in U.S. show jumping history. She rode in three Olympic games, winning two team Silver Medals — at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta with Eros and at the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, where she also tied for fourth individually aboard her famed mount Starman, a 2012 Show Jumping Hall of Fame inductee. Kursinski also served as a traveling alternate on two other U.S. Olympic teams.
Kursinski has won many major competitions in her career including the American Invitational, American Gold Cup and Hampton Classic. Internationally, she was the first American to win the Grand Prix of Rome, the second woman and third American to win the Grand Prix of Aachen and the first American and woman to win the Gran Premio Pulsar in Monterrey, Mexico. Her many honors include America’s Favorite Show Jumping Equestrian in 2011.
From her farm in Frenchtown, N.J., Kursinski has trained many successful riders, has written two books, launched an online instructional website called “Riding & Jumping Mentor,” and is a popular and well-respected clinician.
“We are so happy to be able to offer these clinics as a part of our mission to help Thoroughbreds and their riders strive to reach their goals. We are honored to have Anne as this year’s clinician,” said Lisa Demars, president of the Fair Hill show.
