Hi Everyone,
We will be having a XC clinic at Windchase with Phyllis Dawson on Saturday July 31 (raindate Aug 1). Come Jump with us.
Further clinics will be scheduled throughout the year.

Entries close at 7:00 pm on the Wednesday before the clinic (though I prefer you to enter earlier!). Ride times will be emailed out on Thursday. I have groups ranging from a very green elementary group for those of you wanting to stick to small jumps, up through Prelim/Intermediate. There will be 3 to 4 riders in each group. Groups will run approximately 1 hour 45 minutes. Please plan to be warmed up at your appointed time.

All Windchase clinics are designed to be inviting and user-friendly. We will keep things very basic and inviting for the greener horses, and will incorporate some more creative elements for the higher groups as appropriate. Exercises can be adjusted within a group for each horse as needed. Nobody has to jump anything they don't want to!

The cost is $90 ($75 for Windchase Boarders)
PLEASE NOTE: when you sign up through Strider, you will receive a confirmation email from them. If you sign up and do NOT receive confirmation, please try again, but also email me your entry.
You can email me at if you have questions or want to be put on our mailing list.

Please make any changes or cancellations no later than the Wednesday before the clinic. Cancellations later than 48 hours before the clinic may incur a $30 cancellation fee (not applicable if inclement weather makes the roads bad).

Clinics generally run from approximately 9:00 to about 4:00 in the afternoon, depending on how many people sign up and how many groups we end up having. If you have time restraints, note them when you sign up and I will honor them if I can. If the weather is hot, we can start earlier and end later to avoid the hottest part of the day if necessary.

If you know someone who would like to participate, have them e-mail me and I will add them to the mailing list. If you wish to be removed from this list, let me know and I will take you off of it.

Contact me by email at if you have any questions.
Come Jumping!

Administrative Information

  • Ride Time: Ride times will be E-mailed out two days before the clinic.
  • Trailer Direction: The address for the clinic: Windchase, Kidwell Road, Purcellville (or Hillsboro), VA 20132 (The street number is 36502 Kidwell Road, but if you put in the street number the GPS will sometimes direct people to turn onto Piney Run Road a quarter mile to the north instead of Kidwell – do not do this. From 671, the Harpers Ferry Road, you need to turn onto Kidwell Road. It works better if you just put Windchase, Kidwell Road in the GPS and not the street number)When you turn up Kidwell Road, we are the 4th drive on the right. The number is 36502, and it says Windchase on the mailbox and rock sign. At the house, bear left and go back past the lake to the stables. Please drive slowly and watch for speed bumps and dogs.
