I'm trying to get the details worked out and need to gauge interest. We are less than an hour north of the KHP. He would only do one group of Novice, the rest above that. Early fall, no date yet set. Interest level and riding level please.
I might be interested depending on the dates. My schedule is a bit hectic. I would have an intermediate horse that is running advanced and a CCI** in October and maybe a preliminary horse that is running a CCI* in October. I would be coming from WI, but my dad lives in Lexington.
Keep us posted!
Considering how many (yeah right!) big name clinics are in the area, I'm sure you could get quite a few folks who would be interested (I would but currently I've got a training horse with a tumor and a pre-starter prospect ). I'll ask around at my trainer's barn though!
I would drive a very, very long way to ride with Jimmy Wofford.
My only competing horse is Novice, but I've ridden up to Preliminary. My hope is the youngster will be ready for Training this fall, so I'd think a Training group under the eye of the master would be do-able.
I love riding for Jimmy. Depends on cost (stabling, can I stay in my trailer, etc.) and weekend (Flying Cross HT and KY Classic are possibly on my schedule). I have an experienced Preliminary horse which I also did a year at Intermediate.
Yep, I'd love to do another clinic with him! I'm in the Louisville area and pretty sure you could generate a lot of interest, as he came here a couple years ago and had a full house! Depending on exactly when, I'll either have a training or prelim horse.
I am waiting to hear back from Jimmy with a list of possible dates. Weekdays or weekends doesn't matter to me at all, that's probably the next question, though I'll ask Jim which he prefers. I plan to keep all costs to a minimum (yes really) since the object of this clinic is simply to a) Ride With Jimmy Wofford. b) Get our farm a damn fine "grand re opening".
c) Great Day in the Morning, we Get to Ride With JIMMY WOFFORD!!!!!
Once we get the dates set, I'll do the math and the goal is to get an absolutely top notch clinician in here (hopefully a recurring theme) and break even. I think too many times the expense keeps some that would really benefit from being able to attend, so gas and expenses being what they are, without insulting Himself, I'm going to make it as doable as possible for everyone.
There are three quite decent Holiday Inn type hotels within 5 minutes of the farm. Decent restaurants,(Cracker Barrel, Mexican, and the usual fast food) 2 places on the exit to get diesel and truck/trailer friendly gas stations. The county we live in is dry, save one Mexican restaraunt about 10 miles up the freeway. It is the only place you can get ANY alcohol at all within 25 miles. (Not that it matters to any of us).
I'll post more as I get more information from Mr. Wofford.
I would be interested and I have one student that would be interested it would be great to ride with jimmy again. I have a horse that may be novice or training by fall and I have a student that will be training by fall.
I'm pretty excited!
I personally can do during the week, sort of... I have classes tuesday and thursday..
I have to agree with you, expences are what usually keep me from going to more clinics...(and horse trials)
"Hell yes I can ride. I was riding when I fell off!"
