Stephen Clarke is a world-renowned Dressage judge, former competitor, and trainer. With 5 National Championship titles to his name, Stephen Clarke is now travelling worldwide, concentrating on judging and training. As an FEI 5* Dressage Judge, he is equipped to teach and advise all levels of the sport. Stephen is a master at choosing suitable exercises for each horse and rider combination with his priority being relaxation, and the physical and mental well-being of the horse. His calm, consistent approach makes it easy for riders and auditors to discuss issues and ask questions.

Included in the weekend is an evening with Stephen, a banquet, and of course two full days of auditing rides! Stay tuned for the full schedule. Information for rider applicants and tickets for auditors will be available soon at www.cadora.ca and westmandressage.ca.

Trust and respect are two-way streets. We want the horse to accept us as leaders of the herd, to guide them safely and to provide protection and comfort. In return, they will give us their respect, and willing submission to our ideas about what to do next, and when and where. But this respect can only be based on well deserved trust. ~Walter Zettl
