Patrick has devoted his life to learning and teaching great horsemanship and dressage. From his humble roots as a 4H rider in western PA, he has become one of the most sought after instructors on the East Coast. His mentors, friends, collaborators and instructors include: Ray Hunt, Craig Johnson, Richard Winters, Wendy Murdoch, John Lyons, Mary Flood, Guy McLean, Mark Russell, Julio Mendoza, and Master Luis Valenca.
Many of Patrick's mentors themselves were students of the famous Nuno Oliveira and you will see many of Nuno's teachings- especially an emphasis on timing, feel, and lightness- in Patrick's lessons. Patrick has ridden and trained horses in the Grand Prix movements, advanced in-hand work, and haute ecole.
Whether you want the expert knowledge of a horseman for difficulties you're having connecting to your horse psychologically, or whether you are seeking to advance your dressage career with an expert on biomechanics and timing, this clinic will offer you the chance to work with Patrick in a picturesque setting with privacy.
Unable to attend but still interested in learning? Patrick provides free education throughout the year for novices and trainers alike through his YouTube channel, mentorship program, articles, podcasts, and instructional commentary on his website and social media pages.
