Medfield, MA – The only place to be this last weekend in June is Medfield, Massachusetts, when Donna Cameron and Cutler Farm deliver on their promise to blitz dressage aficionados with the most anticipated Summer Open House of the season, featuring a blockbuster clinic, June 29-30, with its US Pan American Games Dressage Gold medalist, 2012 Olympic Team reserve rider, and resident trainer, Heather Blitz - free to audit Opening Day for NEDA and CRDA members. And Cutler will be directing all trailer-in and audit fees collected to The One Fund to benefit victims of the Boston Marathon bombings. Cameron invites riders: “Please come, and plan to ride with Heather, as part of a very special clinic to benefit The One Fund.”
Cutler Farm will also take advantage of the long light of summer to throw a not-to-be-missed Saturday evening Summer Open House on its historic grounds from 6 to 10 p.m., featuring hors d'oeuvres and open bar, dancing to the music of Blue Pants, barn tours, a special performance by Blitz, and a raffle featuring, among others, both a lesson with Blitz and Custom Saddlery saddle pad autographed by the Pan Am Gold medalist, and beautiful stock tie and Swarovski pin from ShowChic Dressage.
Clinic space is reserved to eight riders per day. Clinics start at 9 a.m., and conclude at 4 p.m. Registration is now open. To register or learn more, contact Cutler Farm (508) 359-2191 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Blitz is a sought after clinician who emphasizes the use of biomechanics – for both horse and rider- in her clinics. This matches with Cutler Farm’s holistic approach to horses and riding, including the use of pilates. During the clinic, Blitz will explain how she incorporates the teachings of Mary Wanless into her programs and how she emphasizes the importance of understanding the bio-mechanics of both horse and rider to achieve the highest success as an equestrian.
Cameron knew that Blitz would fit in beautifully at Cutler Farm. “I have followed Heather’s career and her progress with Paragon in the last several years because of my deep interest in incorporating bio-mechanics into the sport of dressage,” Cameron explains. “As a former student of ballet and a fervent Pilates devotee, I was keenly aware of the importance of developing a strong core and of understanding the physics of body movement to achieve a higher degree of harmony between horse and rider,” she continues, “I wanted very much to offer this form of rider education at Cutler Farm because I believe it melds together a scientific concept with an aesthetic grace – a combination of strength and beauty – which, to my mind, is what dressage is all about.”
About The One Fund
