George Williams Clinic Info
Due to other obligations, the September date has been canceled.
If an alternate date becomes available, it will be posted.
Since 2017, this clinic has been held at Collective Roots Dressage at 602 Jennersville Road in Cochranville, PA. 2022 marks the 14th year that we will be welcoming George Williams to Pennsylvania.
A successful national and international dressage competitor, Mr Williams, the youngest of nine children, was raised with horses. He has trained with many of the well known dressage greats: Karl Milkolka, Egon von Neindorff, Major Hector Carmona, Melle van Brugen, Klaus Balkenhol. He believes that all horses can be improved through the correct usage of dressage principles. Many dressage enthusiasts know him as: the former head trainer of the Temple Farms’ Lipizzans, or the rider of the floppy eared mare, Rocher, or as the President of USDF. Through this clinic, you will see that his talents as a rider are also complemented by his great gift as a trainer and teacher.
“Each horse has a different personality,” says George. “Horses have pretty much meant everything to me. They have shared basically all aspects of my life – as a boy growing up, my first adventures away from home as a young man, my career as an adult, and I met my wife through horses. They are the reason I live where I live. I can't think of much that they have not influenced. I feel very fortunate, for, how many people can make a career out of their passion?”
Registration opens August 1st (postmark).

A note from Fay: I often hear from people that would like to ride with George, that this clinic fills with just members. Yes, sometimes, but every year we have new faces in the clinic. If you are wondering if you have a chance of getting a ride, please email me. It's not unusual to have someone drop out of the clinic, so alternate riders are also needed. The best advice is to become a member and apply on opening day.
