Dressage Ireland International Development Pathway
Richard White Clinic 24th and 25th October 2022
Dressage Ireland are once again hosting a clinic with International Dressage Coach Richard White on 24th and 25th October 2022. These clinics will take place regularly throughout 2022 and will provide the foundation of a pathway towards International competition for Irish dressage athletes. The main focus of this pathway is to increase Irish participation at International level.
Kyra Kyrklund six time dressage Olympian, six times FEI Dressage World cup finalist and winner of a Dressage World Cup, attributes Richard as the most influential person in her career, describing him as an exceptional coach. Together they have, and continue to coach some of the best combinations in the world. Dressage Ireland are delighted to engage Richard’s expertise for these clinics.
Dressage Ireland would like to seek expressions of interest from combinations who have achieved two scores of 63% at PSG level and above in 2021/2022. We would also invite expressions of interest from combinations who have achieved two scores of 63% at Advanced medium level in 2021/2022 to be considered for this and future clinics.
