Event Details

The GMHA Junior Horsemanship Clinic is celebrating its 64th Anniversary in 2020! This is a premier Eventing clinic in the northeast for youth riders ages 9-17.  However, all riding disciplines are encouraged to attend. Riders bring their own horses or ponies to camp, and receive two quality mounted lessons and two unmounted lessons every day. Riders will school all three phases of Eventing: dressage, cross-country, and show jumping. The professional staff and extensive facility makes this an amazing opportunity!

Our facility includes:

  • Four all-weather riding arenas with geo-textile footing
  • A professionally designed cross-country course offering fences at the Elementary, Beg. Novice, Novice, Training, Preliminary and Intermediate levels.
  • Six permanent barns with stabling up to 220 horses.
  • An extensive trail network with nearly 600 miles of marked trail utilizing property through the generosity of local landowners
  • Youth Center facility for unmounted gatherings and educational clinics

GMHA has a rich history in Eventing, having hosted horse trials for over 50 years.

A special thank you to People’s United Bank, Equi-Prep and Nutrena for sponsoring our 2019 JHC t-shirts!
