    August 29-30, 2015 marked the first annual Adult Rider Camp for Area IV, held in conjunction with the Illinois Dressage & Combined Training Association at Geneva Equestrian in Lake Geneva, WI. This experience went well beyond a 2 day clinic, including opportunities for participants to have saddle fittings, ride in County demo saddles, have 3 rides with 2 amazing clinicians, spend personalized time with a top lameness vet, as well as enjoying breakfast and lunch provided each day! The participants benefitted from a wealth of knowledge, made improvements in their riding, gained confidence, may have gone home with a new saddle, and overall had fun on a level unparalleled since high school summer camp!

    It was an amazing week at NAJYRC this year with our new coach Emily Beshear and our official mascot “Oscar”. We began the weekend at the beautiful layover barn “Clearview Equestrian”. Thanks to Stacy Ehlers for hosting the team! Emily was able to spend 1:1 time with the riders and have group time with the team over the weekend prepping for Championships. Our team consisted of the following: Sam Kelly (17) with Groom Shannon Schlee, Kristine Burgess (16) with Groom Ann Osterbauer, Makenna Rold (15) with groom Lexi Robinson, and Cassie Wallskog (14) with groom Becca Gall. Autumn Schweiss was our Chef de Equipe and Coach Emily Beshear. After a relaxing weekend for riders, grooms and horses, we moved into Kentucky Horse Park on Monday to get ready for the week.
