In October, guest instructor Paul Belasik led a dressage clinic at Upper Campus, providing seven young riders the opportunity to hone their skills with an accomplished author and horse trainer. Mr. Belasik gives clinics, lectures, and demonstrations internationally as well as working with students at his Pennsylvania Riding Academy.
OVS equestrians have enjoyed a busy month of events. Four middle school riders attended a competitive jumping derby in Somis, coming home with several top-place ribbons and horse show experience to launch the year. Elementary riders gave a demonstration during Family Weekend at Lower Campus. And high school riders will head out on their first horse camping trip of the year in November.
