Lexington, VA – July 28, 2015 – This August, the Virginia Horse Center is proud to welcome renowned horsemen and clinicians Julie Winkel, Bucky Reynolds and Jack Towell. On August 4, Winkel will host a one-day clinic presented by the Virginia Horse Shows Association (VHSA), and on August 24-25 the Horse Center welcomes Reynolds and Towell for “How to Improve Your Performance in the Show Ring."  

While rider registration has closed for Winkel’s clinic, last minute audit spots can be reserved by calling the VHSA office at (540) 349-0910. Full details on the clinic are available online here.

Auditor spaces and limited rider openings still remain for Reynolds and Towell’s clinic; reservations can be made using the form found here. The two-day clinic will offer sections for riders at 2'6", 3', and 3'3", with each section being offered both days. Rider reservations are accepted on a strictly first come, first served basis with a limit of eight riders per section.

Each two-hour section will incorporate flat work, jumping exercises and course work. Each session is followed by an opportunity for riders to ask Reynolds and Towell questions as trainers and judges about any aspect of riding and showing.

Reynolds is a well-known, highly respected hunter/jumper trainer and judge. He has trained and ridden some of the most notable show hunters in the United States including Henry the Hawk, Square Lake, Stocking Stuffer, Garbiel and Gozzi. Reynolds also trained national champions in the amateur owner hunters with his sister, Betty Oare, riding Estrella. He has judged every major horse show in the United States including the National Horse Show, the Devon Horse Show and the Pennsylvania National, and he is a member of the VHSA Hall of Fame.

Similarly, Towell is one of the only trainers in the country to train a champion or reserve champion in every division at the year-end fall indoor horse shows. He has been named the Leading Junior Hunter Trainer of the World Champion Junior Hunter Rider association. Towell's students have been named Best Child Rider at Devon and the fall indoor shows 18 times. He has trained the overall High Score Pony Hunter at the U.S. Pony Finals and the overall champion at the U.S. Junior Hunter Finals. Towell also judges some of the most prestigious horse shows in the country and has twice trained Brunello, ridden by daughter Liza Boyd, to the USHJA International Hunter Derby Championship. His son, Hardin, is a successful grand prix rider currently based in California.

Both of these accomplished horsemen bring great insight into the riding and training skills that produce winning rounds in the show ring.
