The Windchase Eventing Jumping Clinics are going strong. Ride with Olympian Phyllis Dawson at Windchase. Come Jumping!

Clinics will be offered on these dates:
Sunday February 14, 2021
Sunday February 21, 2021
Sunday February 28, 2021
Sunday March 7, 2021
Sunday March 14, 2021
Further clinics will be scheduled throughout the year.

Entries close at midnight on the Thursday before each clinic. Ride times will be emailed out on Fridays. 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 5 riders in each group (usually 4). Groups will run approximately 1 hour 15 minutes. Please plan to be warmed up at your appointed time. Clinics will be conducted in a covid-safe way.

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!

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 Thursday 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 10:00 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. Windchase boarders, if you are not participating, you may prefer to plan your riding before or after these jumping groups.

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.

Administrative Information

  • Ride Time: Ride times will be E-mailed out two days before the clinic.
  • Trailer Direction: The address for the clinic: 36502 Kidwell Road, Purcellville, VA 20132
    The GPS will sometimes direct people to turn onto Piney Run Road instead of Kidwell. DO NOT DO THIS! Please be sure to turn off of 671, the Harpers Ferry Road, onto Kidwell Road. (Piney Run Lane is about a quarter mile north of Kidwell.)
    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.PLEASE NOTE: If you are coming from Leesburg or the East, Route 9 in Hillsboro is closed. Please plan accordingly.
    To avoid this construction, if you are traveling from the Leesburg area, stay on Route 7 to Round Hill, and cut through on 719 north (Woodgrove Rd), then left on 751 (Cider Mill Rd), which will bring you out to turn left on Route 9 – you will be west of Hillsboro, thereby missing the construction. From there, right on 671, and left on Kidwell. Email me at if you need more detailed info or a map.
