BVDC will host a Cones Clinic for all levels of horses and whips. BVDC member Laura DeFazio will be the clinician.

The format will be lesson groups (not individual). The group lesson approach will enable you to watch others drive through the cones patterns and hear Laura’s commentary so you can learn from everyone else’s participation as well as your own.

There will be 2 lesson groups, separated by the level of experience based on either the horse or the whip:

(1) Novice / Training level horse or whip (walk/trot only)

(2) Prelim / Intermediate level horse or whip (walk/trot/canter)

There will be a morning group session starting at 10:00 am and an afternoon session starting at 1:00 pm.

Auditors are welcome.

Headsets will be provided for all participants, including auditors so that everyone will be able to hear what Laura is saying.

· Non-Members: $60.00 + $25.00 non-member fee (which will provide you with a BVDC Annual Membership from now until Mar 1, 2024)
