The United States Dressage Federation (USDF), with the support of The Dressage Foundation, 2004 Friend of USDF Youth Programs, is pleased to announce the fall 2004 schedule for the USDF Advanced Young Rider and Junior Rider Clinic Series with Conrad Schumacher.

The USDF Advanced Young Rider and Junior Rider Clinic Series is a rare opportunity to provide international-level instruction to advanced young riders and juniors who compete in dressage in the United States. USDF also encourages U.S. dressage coaches and trainers to audit these clinics so that they may educate themselves on Mr. Schumacher's highly successful method of teaching and training and share this method with their students.

Each clinic is a three-day, intensive learning program including private lessons and theory sessions. When not riding, participants are expected to watch and learn as Mr. Schumacher instructs others and explains his methods. Mr. Schumacher also encourages auditor questions and participation.

Auditors may preregister with the USDF office for $30 per day or $70 for all three days, or they may register at the clinic for an additional $10 per day. Junior or young riders may preregister to audit the clinics for $20 per day or $60 for three days, or they may register at the clinic for an additional $5 per day. Auditors need not be USDF members.

All USDF juniors and young riders riding at Third Level or above may apply to participate in the clinics. Each clinic will be limited to eight riders, who will be selected on the basis of their riding level and awards earned. Participant applications are due in the USDF office by September 1.

The Dressage Foundation's mission is to cultivate and provide financial support for the advancement of dressage. "We are glad to be able to provide financial support for these clinics, as these young riders will become the dressage instructors, competitors, and judges of the future," said John Boomer, president and CEO of The Dressage Foundation.

One of the most celebrated junior and young-rider dressage instructors in the world, Mr. Schumacher trained the European Young Rider Championship first-place teams and individual medal winners from 1979 to 1989. At the 1996 Olympics, he coached Sven and Gonnelien Rothenberger to the Netherlands' silver team medal and Sven to his individual bronze medal. Mr. Schumacher trained young riders for the United States Equestrian Team from 1991 to 1995 and was the trainer of the British team at the 1998 World Equestrian Games. In all, Mr. Schumacher's students have won more than 40 international medals.
