Lake Erie College to host clinic featuring Grand Prix Rider and Trainer
Lake Erie College will be hosting a new hunter/jumper clinician with Grand Prix rider and trainer Ian Silitch Dec. 1-2 at the George M. Humphrey Equestrian Center located in Concord Township, approximately six miles from the main campus.
Silitch, visiting from Ocala, Fla., has won more than 30 Grand Prix’s including the HITS Ocala King’s Shavings Grand Prix, the HITS Ocala Volvo Grand Prix, Vermont’s Manchester and the Mountains Grand Prix and the HITS Culpeper Rio Vista Grand Prix.
The focus of the December clinic will be on learning to read a horse, communicating effectively and putting those tools together to achieve the best possible performance. Three different groups will ride each day – Saturday, Dec. 1 from 9:00 a.m.-4:45 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 2 from 8:00 a.m.-1:45 p.m.
The clinic is open to Lake Erie students and any riders from the outlying community. Registration forms are available at www.lec.edu/equine/events. For more information, please contact Sarah Arpke at 440.375.8000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
