Dressage Clinic with Olympic Silver Medalist

Lisa Wilcox

Presented by Rick Silvia Dressage and FCEA, this weekend clinic will have something for everyone. 

Lisa's teaching style is extremely detail oriented, she conveys her experience and wisdom with enthusiasm. “Do it with a smile” has always been Lisa’s motto. Her ability to articulate corrections and recommendations for improvement make her an outstanding clinician for auditors as well.

"I have yet to find a perfect horse. My objective is to work with their mental capabilities and gain their trust. That is how I come to understand them, which enables me to work with their physical deficiencies, if any. This takes time and patience...... Professional trainers know how many hours they must spend working on and improving the horse's weaknesses and mental capabilities. Think long-term, and you will not only have a horse that understands you but also one that enjoys what he is doing. This is the key to harmony." Lisa Wilcox

Colorado raised - Olympian Lisa Wilcox invested a large portion of her early dressage career training in Europe with some of the sport’s masters, including Herbert Rehbein and Ernst Hoyos. While residing in Germany, she passed the professional horse trainer, or Bereiter, and riding-instructor, or Reitlehrer, exams. She also served as the head trainer at Gestüt Vorwerk, one of Germany’s best-known Oldenburg stud farms, for seven years, riding such famous stallions as Rohdiamant, Royal Diamond and Relevant. She and Relevant won the individual silver medal at the 2003 Open European Championships and earned a team silver for the U.S. at the 2002 World Equestrian Games and a team bronze at the 2004 Olympics.

Lisa moved back to the U.S. in 2006 and started her teaching and training business based at Rick Silvia's Dream Street Stallions farm in Florida.

Lisa and Rick Silvia teamed up to develop Dream Street Dressage (stallions) with many outstanding young prospects earning invitations to and placements at the Young Horse National Championships, Horse of The Year accolades at the FEI levels and even a spot as the USET alternate for the Young Horse World Championships (Lullaby - 2006). Lisa was instrumental in helping Rick further his riding education, shape his teaching style and become the competitor he is today.

In 2017, she won the World Cup Freestyle and Grand Prix at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival and posted the second-highest Grand Prix score at the Nations Cup in Wellington on Jacqueline Shear’s Galant. She also won the 2016 Palm Beach Derby National USEF Developing Horse class with Horses Unlimited’s stallion Gallant Reflection HU.

Our Friday evening Symposium, "Poetry in Motion," will be a mix of education and entertainment. Sponsored by County Saddlery & Gene Freeze, Alltech/McCauley Bros Feed, Lexington Brewery & Distillery, Journey's End Farm, Equine Exchange Tack Shop, and Lisa Wilcox.

The evening will consist of multiple segments.

  • 1. Lisa Wilcox will discuss, while Rick Silvia demonstrates, how effective training without resistance makes the horse and rider appear as "Poetry in Motion". Learn some of the many tips and tricks that have made her so successful. This will be especially beneficial to the clinic riders, as she will explain what she is looking for during the clinic lessons.

  • 2. Gene Freeze (the founder of County Saddlery) will join Lisa for an informative discussion on how the role a properly fitting saddle works to remove resistance. The geometry of the saddle fit from top to the rider and the bottom to the horse. County Saddlery will have booth set up for everyone to wander through and ask the saddle fitters questions. County will be scheduling saddle fittings Friday evening and all day Saturday for those interested in bringing their horse for a fitting.

  • 3. Speak with the Alltech/McCauley Bros nutrition advisor about your animals health. Learn about all of the available options they have for feeding and supplementing your favorite equine with high quality nutrition, without waste. Let them show you how feeding a premium feed actually saves you money.

  • 4. Lexington Brewing and Distillery will be on hand to give everyone tastings of four of their unique ales.

  • 5. Attendees will receive a hospitality bag filled with gifts from our sponsors as a thank-you for attending. A special selection of hors d'oeuvres will be available for your enjoyment.
