Clinic Format

Saturday, June 20, 2019

8:00 AM Registration

9:00 AM-10:00 AM


You’ll get acclimatized as 3 riders demonstrate movements and paces while Mariette

  • Critiques the movements

  • Explains how the rider can improve the movement and raise the mark 


10:15 AM - 4:30 PM  

  • 9-40 minute test-ride sessions with a one hour break for lunch


Each Ride will have 4 components:

  • Wearing a microphone, our clinician Mariette Withages will share her marks and comments with you, movement by movement, as she judges the rider's first run at the test


  • Following the test ride, Mariette will work with the rider and their coach for about 15 minutes to improve a few select movements from the test


  • Then the rider will re-ride the test for you, your peers, and of course, Mariette (sans microphone) to score


  • After the final halt, Mariette will share her marks and comments with the group so you can see how your scoring compares
