Professionals’ Symposium Featuring Lilo Fore

RMDS Professionals' Symposium Featuring Lilo Fore
May 15-16, 2018
Colorado Horse Park, Parker, Colorado

Join us for two days of Dressage Education with LILO FORE

Lilo Fore hardly needs an introduction to the Dressage community! She is the Judge everyone wants to ride for, because her scores make sense and her comments give you exactly the information you need to improve. The clinician who [most recently] ran the FEI Trainers Forum AND the USEF Judges Forum SIMULTANEOUSLY in Wellington, Florida.

Do you appreciate the depth of knowledge it takes to handle both those groups of Professionals, and send them home satisfied? Ask anyone who was there - Lilo is a Master teacher, Master Trainer, and all around excellent human being.

You DO NOT WANT TO MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY to work with Lilo in your own back yard!

IF YOU ARE A 2018 member of RMDS and a declared professional of ANY sport or discipline – YOU CAN ATTEND AS AN AUDITOR.

What is this Trainer's forum about? It's about providing a 2 day clinic, with a world class trainer, in a venue where training concepts can be observed and discussed. Lilo has the depth of experience to provide solid education at ALL levels. Every level of ability is welcome and encouraged to attend!
Every trainer needs time to sharpen their eye, refresh their motivation, and get re-inspired.

Do you HAVE to talk? Only if you are a rider being asked a question!

Can you ask why the rider sitting crooked is not having their seat addressed? You bet!

The Symposium will run approximately 8:30am-5pm each day with registration beginning at 8am. Box lunches will be provided for all pre-registrants and demonstration riders.

US Equestrian: Equestrian Athlete Lettering Program

You don't have to be a record setting quarterback, point guard or track star to letter in junior high or high school sports anymore. The US Equestrian is writing a new chapter in the recognition of student athletes - one that honors Equestrians.

The US Equestrian Athlete Lettering Program is open to equestrian athletes in all breeds or disciplines who are currently members of US Equestrian or become US Equestrian members. The program runs from June 1-May 31 of each year and will honor those who document their training and competition involvement by awarding emblems and pins.

Students may apply retroactively for previous years if they are still in grades 5-12 and can provide verification for each year.  Seniors must submit all documentation by June 15 of their graduating year.

The program recognizes and honors equestrians in grades five to 12. To be eligible, a student must:

  • Be a US Equestrian member (Fan or Competing)
  • Log 100 hours of equestrian activity
  • Compete at three competitions of any type or level (shows do not have to be USEF)
  • Submit proof of enrollment in school

Students receive an achievement certificate, a free letterman patch and a lapel pin for each year that they complete the program's requirements. More information about the US Equestrian Lettering program can be found at usef.org/lettering.
