MT. Airy, MD- On October 6 and 7 at GoodNess Ridge Farm in Mt. Airy, MD. pony maven Lendon Gray will be teaching a two day, pony-only clinic. “We’re exceptionally lucky that Lendon has an open date in her busy calendar,” says Kelly Gage, owner of Team EnGaged. “The quality that has already committed and expressed interest is really nice.”

The focus of the clinic is creating a wider, more connected base of pony and human talent for the FEI Pony division. “We need the breeders, the trainers, the instructors, and the parents all on board. I KNOW the talented kids are ready," mentions Gray. “It’s a really good opportunity for people and ponies to come together to continue with Lendon’s efforts to expand the FEI Ponies,” states Gage. “Priority will be placed on filling the clinic with 12 to 16 year olds, then ponies ridden by adults and then the general public.”

The clinic is open to eight combinations, and is also open to auditing population as well. “We just finished an Olympics where so many riders in their twenties were super stars. Almost all of these riders started on dressage ponies,” says Gray. “Perhaps if we challenge our youth to ride at this FEI Pony level, in ten years we too will have riders in their twenties representing us.”
