Rutledge Farm Sessions with Hall Of Fame Hunter Trainer Louise Serio
Join us for a clinic with championship hunter competitor and trainer Louise Serio!
In addition to Serio's countless years of success as a competitive hunter rider, including winning the $100,000 WCHR Peter Wetherill Palm Beach Hunter Spectacular in Wellington, Serio has dedicated much of her career to giving back. She has served on the board of directors for the USHJA, USEF and American Hunter Jumper Foundation, and is a USHJA certified trainer. Serio co-founded the USHJA's World Championship Hunter Rider (WCHR) in 1992, a program dedicated to celebrating and supporting junior, amateur and professional hunter riders across the country. Since the program's inception, she has won the WCHR Professional Rider Championship twice.

Please make sure to complete and sign a release BEFORE arriving.
Participants who have not signed a release will NOT be allowed to ride.
You may e-mail a completed release ahead of time to email@example.com. If you do e-mail it to us, then we will confirm that we have received it. If we do not confirm that we have received it then please reach out to us. Sometimes e-mails get swallowed by spam filters.
PAYING FOR THE CLINIC:
All riders must pre-pay via this website. Once you've paid and we receive payment confirmation then your space is booked. Until then, it is still available for anyone to book.
If you have any trouble paying, for any reason, then please e-mail this website's support team.
If a rider needs to cancel, once the rider has already paid, then the rider should find another rider to take their place. Please notify us if this is the case, so that we can process the substitution. Substitutions will incur a $100 administrative fee.
Note: We love dogs, and even still, no dogs will be allowed, so please leave your little friends at home.
