Navigator Clinic at Cypress Keep! 
Saturday, August 29,

Have you ever wanted to ride on the back of a carriage but be more than just a dead weight passenger? Or are you a VSE/Small Pony driver who has to navigate and drive alone? This clinic can benefit drivers as well as navigators in training. Familiarize yourself with the art and science of navigation with this clinic, and learn about navigator duties and responsibilities. Time calculations, paces, and rules will be covered in an indoor slide presentation that combines the knowledge of top navigators throughout the country. We will step outdoors occasionally to try out carriage stances and other items, but most of the clinic is in airconditioning. Snacks and drinks also provided, as well as handouts, clipboards, and pencils.


Your Clinicians: Erika Matulich is an American Driving Society Technical Delegate for Combined Driving and Pleasure Driving. John Porter is an USEF/FEI Steward for Carriage Driving and completing his ADS CDE judging card.   Experienced Whips members will also be there as mentors.
