CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — Two world-class riding instructors will present clinics at Wilson College during the month of October.

Hall of Fame rider Michael Page will give a stadium jumping clinic from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 13 and 14; and British Olympic rider Jeremy Beale will present a two-day dressage clinic from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday, Oct. 23 and 24. Both clinics will be held in the Hawthorne Arena at Wilson’s Penn Hall Equestrian Center.

Clinics, which are recommended for advanced and upper-intermediate students, are open to the public for auditing for a fee of $10 per day.

Page is a well-known eventing rider who won Olympic medals in the 1964 and ’68 Olympics and also medaled in the Pan American games a number of times. He has received numerous other accolades, had a successful coaching career and today is in great demand as a clinician.

Beale was reserve rider for the British Equestrian Team for the 1960 and 1964 Olympic Games. 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.
