Winter Training Program
Aiken, South Carolina
January 29- March 10, 2018
Come join Eric in Aiken for the 2018 season. Many of you will have
ridden with him in previous years, or ridden with him in clinics, and
know he provides a personal learning experience. For those of you who
are unfamiliar with him, Eric's instructional approach is to present an
opportunity that promotes individual horse/rider performance based on
achieving the goals set by you, that are specific to you and your
horse’s needs. The structure is designed to make the program flexible
and accommodating to the riders.
Instruction cost is per lesson. Individual lessons are 45-50 minutes. Group lessons can be 2-4 riders, and are 90 minutes. Eric's lesson fees do not include any additional fixed cost charged by the facility where the lesson is scheduled (ship-in fee, cross-country schooling fee, etc.).
There are several instructional options available depending on the number of times and the type of lesson.
By the Ride: $125/individual lesson
$85/person for a group of 2
$65/person for a group of 3-4 (no groups larger than 4)
By the Block*: $500 for a block of 5 individual lessons
$400/person for a block of 5 group lessons of 2 riders
$300/person for a block of 5 group lessons of 3-4 riders
$950 for a block of 10 individual lessons
$1,400 for a block of 15 individual lessons
*In order to be eligible for Block pricing, riders must pay in advance. Scheduling can be flexible and can be stretched out over the entire time Eric is in Aiken. A Block can be one discipline or a combination of dressage, show jumping or cross-country. In order to take advantage of the group Block pricing option, riders will have to be responsible for putting together their own group and assuring that all group members can ride each time.
Stabling and housing are not included in Eric's program. Riders are responsible for finding and renting space for themselves and their horses. Eric will travel to certain farms around Aiken depending on where the majority of riders are housed. If a group of riders are at the same farm he will make every effort to come to you, but some riders may have to ship to Eric. The schedule is organized once riders have arrived in Aiken. Some possible options for stabling and housing are listed below.
