Heading to the 2019 American Eventing Championships? Show jumping course designer Richard Jeffery will be conducting two free show jumping clinics at this year’s AEC, to be held at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

While the clinic serves as a training program for course designers, it’s also open to auditors and a great opportunity to learn from one of the top minds in our sport — no one has more show jumping design experience than Jeffery, whose resume includes the past 21 years of Kentucky Three-Day Events and myriad championships.

The first clinic will run Tuesday, Aug. 27 and Wednesday, Aug. 28 from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. The second clinic will run on Friday, Aug. 30 and Saturday, Aug. 31 from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. The first day of both clinics will be spent in the classroom and the second day will include practical application in the arena.

This seminar serves as a training program for current USEF officials who meet the eligibility requirements and wish to obtain their USEF “R” Eventing Jumping Course Designer (EVJCD) license. The seminar will also fulfill the continuing education clinic (CEC) requirements for current “R” EVJCD license holders.

In order to be eligible for a USEF “R” EVJCD license, applicants must have “designed the jumping course at a minimum of two Preliminary level or higher horse trials at two separate Federation licensed/endorsed competitions within the current or previous two years. These courses must be submitted with the application.”

The fee for current USEF officials and current “R” EVJCD license holders is $50. Auditing is free. The clinics are presented by the USEA and the Roger Haller Education Fund.
