Clinic Details

The NorCal clinic is open to all Professionals, Juniors and Amateurs. There will be a total of 6 groups, 3 on Thursday-Friday, and 3 on Saturday-Sunday. There will be 6 riders in each group. The groups will be filled based on a lottery system by preferred jumping height.

Applications are due November 1st. 

Each applicant will be notified no later than November 12th as to whether or not he or she is selected for the clinic in the lottery.
* If there are not enough ponies to fill a complete group, NorCal reserves the right to exclude ponies, as it is not possible within the time allowed for each session to reset courses to include both horses and ponies.

NorCal will only accept ONE application per rider.

Refunds will be provided to those riders not selected in the lottery.

There will be no refunds provided for hay or shavings if a rider is unable to attend, as they must be ordered and paid for prior to the clinic

Thank you sponsors!
