Horse shows became the park’s most popular feature in the 1960s, attracting more than 1,000 people per day for some events. It continued to be an equestrian magnet in the 1970s; this photo shows a dressage competition at Frying Pan in 1978.

I wanted to make sure that this is available for as many people as possible. Apply for one of the coveted 4 rider spots, in the upcoming Olympic Champion Peter Wylde, June 3, Rutledge Farm Sessions, master clinic. https://www.rutledgefarm.com/clinics https://www.eventclinics.com/a/HgIS8We_iEOJkJaVnsKa0w Riders will be chosen, May 16. Peter is the head clinician of the USHJA's emerging athletes program. This is the only other clinic that Peter will teach, this year. ______________________________ Middleburg, Va. - May 13, 2019 - The team at Rutledge Farm is less than one month away from welcoming Olympic show jumping gold medalist Peter Wylde to host an exclusive, masterclass clinic as a part of the 2019 Rutledge Farm Sessions clinic series. Applications for rider spots will May 16, and auditor tickets are available in the remaining weeks leading up to the clinic. Wylde joins Rutledge Farm's group of elite 2019 clinicians, including Karen Healey, Boyd Martin, Will Simpson, Ali Brock, Debbie McDonald, Phillip Dutton, and Stacia Madden. Working his way up through the ranks, Wylde quickly made a name for himself as a junior athlete by winning top equitation championships, including the ASPCA Maclay Finals as well as the IHSA Cacchione Cup. In 2004, Wylde earned his first Olympic gold medal for the United States in Show Jumping in Athens, Greece. Wylde also earned an individual bronze medal at the Jerez de la Frontera, Spain World Equestrian Games (WEG) in 2002, as well as one team and one individual silver medal at the Pan American Games in Winnipeg, Canada in 1999. Wylde said, "Aleco [Bravo-Greenberg] gave me a tour of [Rutledge Farm,] and it is so beautiful. I had pretty much decided that I wasn't going to do clinics anymore, and this is actually the only clinic that I will do besides the Emerging Athletes Program (EAP) with the USHJA. I'm excited to come back to Middleburg in June." In 2009, Wylde was asked to be the USHJA's first EAP National Training Session clinician for its inaugural program, and he currently serves as the lead clinician each year. Wylde also serves as Vice Chair of the Emerging Athletes Task Force. Throughout the year, Wylde currently competes and trains at some of the country's top show jumping events, including the Devon Horse Show, Kentucky Horse Shows spring and summer series, and the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF). On his training technique, Wylde said, "I like to be able to assess what I see with the given horse and give riders insight into what I think is the best way forward, and what small little changes can try to help them. I try to tailor clinics to give the rider the best information without being too confusing, it should be very simple and very straightforward." With over 40 years of experience in the sport, attendees can look forward to learning about "honing the art of fine riding." Wylde's boutique-style clinic will kick-off at 4:00 p.m. with rider spots being limited to just four horse and rider pairs. Auditors are welcomed and encouraged to join as Wylde imparts his knowledge and advice about the sport. Throughout the clinic, Wylde will open the floor for auditor questions, and the evening will conclude with 30-minute question and answer session. Wylde said, "One of my favorite things about hosting clinics is answering questions. We can use the riders in the clinic as examples, and then talk bigger picture to the audience. I welcome auditors and I think it's a fantastic way to learn. I really love being able to host clinics and share my knowledge." Applications to ride in Wylde's clinic are now open, with limited ride spots available. There are only a few days left to submit applications, and acceptance notices will be sent out to riders on Thursday, May 16. Auditor tickets will be available in the remaining weeks leading up the clinic. For more information about Peter Wylde's Rutledge Farm Session, or to find out how to ride in another one of this year's sessions, visit rutledgefarm.com/clinics. Easy registration for the Rutledge Farm Sessions clinic series is provided by Event Clinics.
