    This is a courtesy posting of a CVDA member-managed clinic. CVDA is not otherwise affiliated with the clinic in any way.

    Join us with your horse for three days that may transform you and your horse and discover what French classical dressage, lightness and self-carriage truly feel like! We recommend signing up for two lessons per day for three days for you and your horse to really understand Dominique’s method and feel a true transformation. But if there is time and room it is also possible to sign for one lesson per day for the three days. Some discounts for CVDA members.

    Managed by CVDA-member Anne Douard Palmer, contact Anne.douard@me.com, phone: (707) 239-6929.
