OK all you jumpers – you’ve asked for us to get an “off the chart” program just for you – and we can unequivocally say – THIS IS IT!
Spend 3-5 days training with the incredible Kevin Babington at his farm in FL. Kevin has competed at all levels including the Olympics. In 2019 after a fall at a show, he became paralyzed and has been undergoing treatment to help maintain and rehabilitate his mobility. Despite that setback, this man is the epitome of grace, humor and positivity – a role model/example like no one we’ve met previously.
This program is for riders of all levels, and those with jumping experience or who are presently competing stand to really benefit from these information packed days. Your private lessons focus solely on you, your goals, your sticky areas and your dreams. Kevin has a keen eye for detail and observes you much like a hawk and its prey – you won’t drop a shoulder or cut any corner, even the smallest weight shift is observed!
Lessons include gridwork, courses and all manner of form evaluation and run an hour. When not riding, you are welcome to join Kevin and listen in on other lessons in progress – an amazing way to glean more knowledge as well as appreciate the technicality of his instruction.
Lessons are also offered with Dianna Babington, Kevin’s wife. A professional in her own right, when she is not hosting clinics all over the USA, she is coaching students at the FL farm as well.
***10% of fees go directly to the Kevin Babington Foundation – a group focused on serving equestrians with spinal injuries, offering grants to help them gain access to professionals at top tier medical facilities and fund sources for new safety equipment and education.
