Winters, CA - Building a medal winning equestrian team starts with building high performance athletes, educating riders and trainers, and enforcing the idea of "A Team Approach". With sponsorship from the United States Para-Equestrian Association (USPEA), United States Equestrian Federation (USEF), and the organization of the education branch of the USPEA, Carlisle Academy Integrative Equine Therapy & Sports, this is being made possible. For new or current U.S. riders and trainers the 2013 U.S. National Para-Dressage Training Symposium is a unique opportunity. Within one weekend riders and trainers will be immersed within the Para-Equestrian Dressage discipline.

The Trainer Workshop is scheduled for November 20, while the Rider Symposium runs from November 21-23, 2013. Clinicians and lecturers include: 2012 Paralympic Gold Medal Team Coach for Great Britain, Clive Milkins; international coach and rider Dennis H. Callin; Dressage and FEI Para-Equestrian 4* Judge David Schmutz, Former USEF High Performance Dressage Director Gil Merrick; FEI Veterinarian Dr. Mike Tomlinson; Para-Equestrian classifiers Joann Benjamin and Tina Wentz; and a panel of experts in multiple areas of Para-Dressage sport.
