Ride-A-Test Kudzu Klinic

Instructor: Cindy Thaxton

Come ride the new dressage tests in front of Cindy Thaxton at High Point Farm in Watkinsville, Georgia, and get feedback and practice in a fun learning environment to help improve for your next show. You will ride your test and be judged. Then we will work on improvement ideas. You can re-ride your test and incorporate the ideas right away! 

Haul-in info: There should be trailer parking signs. Trailers will bear to right of the barn and park parallel to other trailers to try and accommodate as many as possible as well as easy exit

Direction notes: Once on Colham Ferry Rd, you will pass our main training barn on the L. The HPF Academy venue will be 1/2 mi on L and has another sign which says High Point. Do not follow any instructions that tell you to turn off Colham Ferry Rd except said signed drive way. This first 100’ is asphalt. 

About Cindy Thaxton

Cindy began her professional journey in 1985. She has a heart for developing a partnership between the horse and rider. Harmony is created by focusing on communication and using bio-mechanics to balance horse and rider. Her knowledge of the human and equine anatomy, combined with years of studying classical dressage, brings a unique eye to a lesson or clinic. With a desire to help others enjoy riding a happy horse, Cindy is pleased to cater to non-competitive student goals with the same enthusiasm as she brings to her competitive riders. She works with beginners thru Grand Prix.
