This weekend! The Equestrian Center at Pineland Farms, New Gloucester, ME, will be hosting a weekend of Continuing Education in Musical Freestyle with Klassic Kur's Terri Ciotti Gallo and FEI 4*/USEF 'S' Judge Lois Yukins on May 30-31, 2015. Saturday’s Judges’ Program will cover music, choreography and judging criteria. Audio and video components are included to compliment the program. Judges completing the course may earn their “Judges Freestyle Designation” upon passing the online USEF examination. Sunday’s program will focus on ‘Do It Yourself’ Freestyles with a morning lecture and 4-6 rider slots.
Work with Terry and Lois on an existing freestyle; focus on specific elements; or start from scratch. USEF Judges, L-grads, current L Program participants and silent auditors are welcome. For comprehensive understanding everyone is encouraged to attend both sessions.
Klassic Kur's Terry Ciotti Gallo is the best known name in U.S. freestyle. Her freestyles have been presented in the Olympics, World Equestrian Games, World Dressage Masters, Pan American Games, and NAJYRC, with two World Cup titles. Clients include Steffen Peters (Udon, Grandeur, Floriano, Ravel, Legolas); Debbie McDonald (Beaurivage, Brentina); Guenter Seidel (Graf George, Foltaire, Nikolaus 7, Aragon, U II, CR Wylea); George Williams (Rocher, Marnix); Adrienne Lyle (Wizard, Felix); and Charlotte Bredahl (Monsieur, Komo). Providing the judge’s perspective is Lois Yukins, Chair of the USDF L Education program and a member of the USDF Judge’s Committee, USEF Licensed Officials Committee, the Dressage Committee, and the Test Writing Committee.
Auditors will share in the learning by getting an inside look at how Musical Freestyles are scored (Saturday) and how Riders navigate the process of creating their Freestyle (Sunday). NEDA members may attend both days for $85 or a single day for $45 with option to add USDF University credit on Saturday ($5).
