Trec clinic

TREC appeals to the everyday grass roots rider who enjoys the thrill of riding out either as an individual or a pair in unfamiliar countryside. This competition tests their navigational competence, control of their horse’s paces and their ability to tackle a variety of obstacles. TREC was designed to test the partnership between horse and rider and their ability to cope with riding across a varied terrain and over natural obstacles. It involves the skills and challenges any rider might encounter when out hacking on the trail. Join us for a TREC clinic at Cedar Creek Stables on June 23! Information on registering for the clinic can be found on the link, below.

Matt McLaughlin Bio

Matt McLaughlin studied primarily under Chuck Grant, USDF Hall of Fame member and recognized father of American Dressage. As a working student he not only furthered his dressage riding skills, but also learned the art of training horses in haute école for exhibition riding/performances. Matt spent the next seven years as the Principal Rider, Head Rider, and eventually Head Trainer for the Royal Lipizzaner Stallion Show where he trained as many as 16 stallions and riders for the daily performances all over North America, Europe, and Australia as well as performing his own high-energy solo acts. He has successfully trained horses through Grand Prix which have gone on to compete nationally and internationally as well as multiple horses finished in haute école including Capriole, Courbette and Levade. His dedication to the training of horse and rider is based on his system of horsemanship that integrates classical principles of dressage and Natural Horsemanship techniques with a focus on controllability of the mount.
