CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – British Olympian and riding instructor Jeremy Beale will give dressage clinics Wednesday and Thursday, May 9 and 10, at Wilson College. Clinics are open to the public for auditing for a fee of $10. The clinics are recommended for advanced and upper-intermediate students.
The clinics will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days in the Hawthorne Arena at Wilson’s Penn Hall Equestrian Center.
Beale was reserve rider for the British Equestrian Team for the 1960 and 1964 Olympic Games in Rome and Tokyo, respectively. In 1967, he came to the United States to take up the directorship of Potomac West, which subsequently became known as the Pacific Horse Center. In 1971 he moved to Chester Springs, where he established Pen-y-Bryn Equestrian Center after three years at Fox Hollow Farm.
In recent years, Beale re-entered the competitive arena in the field of dressage, competing with much success through Grand Prix and earning a U.S.D.F. Gold Medal. He now has an extensive clinic circuit that takes him all over the United States and abroad.
