Stefano’s back!


Entries for our next clinic with Stefano Van Zuijilen are now open on Nominate.
Dates are from May 23 to 25, and the clinic will once again be held at the magnificent Into The West at North Richmond (83 Slopes Road).

Stefano returns to us after several highly popular HDC clinics each year since 2016. Stefano’s best known horse was Undercover which he rode and trained to Grand Prix Level before his sale to Glock for Edward Gal.

This clinic will run for three days. Please FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTION CAREFULLY! You need to first select your required number of lessons, and then your preferred time slot, but be aware that we may need to amend times, if not all timeslots are filled.

We continue to offer an extremely competitive rate for a trainer of his calibre and also a discount for multiple lessons books by the one rider.  This is open to financial Members of HDC at a reduced rate. Non – members are also very welcome, at an increased fee.

Note that in order to give everyone an opportunity, those with multiple horses should please enter only one lesson per day. If you wish to be considered for more, please purchase a reserve lesson on that day, then if all places are not filled you will be allocated your extra lessons.

Rider dress is smart mufti, though helmet and boots are of course mandatory.

Lessons are $220 (or $200 each for members) with discounts on the second or more lessons per rider.

One Lesson $220 ($200 members)

Three lessons $610 ( $550 members) – each lesson on a different day

Lesson package available only as 1 or 3, but if you wish to purchase 2 lessons, then buy two singles, or if you want 4, then purchase a three and a single etc

Arena Fee: $20 per day Members, $30 for non Members (This also covers your training day fee at SIEC if you choose a Saturday lesson)

Spectators welcome, gold coin donation for tea/coffee. Those entering the Training Day can spectate for free on the Saturday.

Lessons are 45 minutes.

Note that lesson times may have to be changed if not all places are filled, and that confirmed times will be sent a few days prior or as soon as they are all filled.

Once all classes are filled, there is also a Reserve class. Those who do not get a ride will be refunded. This reserve class should also be used for those wanting to nominate for more than 1 lesson per day. (see above points on this)

Tea/Coffee/Water will be provided. Bring your own snacks/lunch.

We hope to see our members there supporting this fantastic opportunity!
