January 11, 2020 @ 8:00 am January 12, 2020 @ 5:00 pm

Through nationwide clinics, private coaching and publishing resources, Jec Ballou delivers straightforward tools to help equine athletes across multiple disciplines. Combining an expertise in horse fitness and classical dressage, her methods deliver riders measurable success in an environment that prioritizes kindness to the horse.

Widely appreciated as the author of best-selling 101 Dressage Exercises for Horse and Rider, Jec’s aim is to meet what she sees as an enormous need within the industry for simple clear, and practical information. 101 Dressage remains one of the top sellers of all equine instruction books and has been translated into three foreign languages.

Please note that we’ve received a grant from the Dressage Foundation so we can keep our clinic costs low.
