Clayton Fredericks

Clayton has had a phenomenal few seasons and therefore it is no surprise that he spent most of 2007 ranked number one on the World stage. Lifting the inaugural World Cup title in 2005 could be regarded as a turning point in Clayton’s competitive career for over the following year, he went on to take the titles at Chatsworth, Saumur, the British Open Championship and took the individual silver and team bronze medals home from the World Equestrian Games. This year Riding Ben Along Time he won in Lexington Kentucky 4**** event for the Rolex Trophy.

But he was not an overnight success and he’ll be the first to admit that without hard work, this would never have happened. Clayton at Gacombe 2007. That’s not to say he’s not a truly gifted rider. As a young boy he’d take the pony he kept in his parents garage to a show and win. But not just any show. For ten consecutive years Clayton claimed the championship at the prestigious State Show Rider of the Year.

All Star clinic

All Star Clinic
Grand Pavilion
Sunday 23 November, 4.30pm

What do they have in common and where do they differ.
The All Star Clinic is a unique gathering of experts in Dressage, Showjumping, Reining, Campdraft/Cutting and Polo.

A separately ticketed event (NOT included in the general admission program)

More information on All Star Clinic
Each discipline involves particular ways of doing things in order to achieve its specific goals from the ascetic of dressage to the practical skills of chasing a ball, a beast or leaving the rails up. In this clinic veteran presenter, Richard Weis, will use the best horse and rider available in each discipline in order to uncover essential elements from selecting horse and gear (it is all purpose bred horses and purpose made gear these days), as well as discipline specific training and riding techniques.

Lately, there is a lot of cross fertilisation one discipline to another. More and more show jumpers are using dressage training to the point that skilled riders make jumping look like dressage with lumps. Dressage trainers are more often using western breakers to start their young horses because they appreciate how safe and responsive their horses start out.

This clinic aims to illuminate a multi disciplinary understanding of the points of similarity and the points of difference. You can expect to come away knowing the difference between a spin and a pirouette and a roll back, why quarter horses don’t do dressage and warm bloods are not good cutting horses or polo ponies.

You’ll also learn about different riding styles and training techniques. You never know, if our luminary participants are brave enough, we just might do some horse swapping.

The ALL  STAR CAST includes Olympians Andreas Helgstrand (Dressage) and Clayton Fredericks (Eventing), Chris Chugg (Show Jumping), Warwick Schiller (Reining) and genius Australian horseman Guy McLean (winner of the ‘Way of the Horse 2005 ’) and more.

What a mix of Equine talent; with Richard running the show, anything could happen! Expect some serious fun! The ALL STAR CLINIC promises to be the highlight of Equitana ’08 - don’t miss it!
