Gordon Dalshaug Equine Services and www.HorseOwnerToday.com are excited to offer this outstanding educational opportunity with Dutch Olympian, Ellen Bontje. Ellen will bring competitive skills and classical training techniques together in this 3 day clinic at Willow Ridge Stable, Saskatoon, SK.

Ellen will coach, train and lecture - horses at various stages of their training and development will be presented and discussed. Auditors will be encouraged to participate during the symposiums. Ellen Bontje has been riding on the Dutch Dressage Team since 1988. She has worked with Conrad Schumacher near Frankfurt, Germany for more than twenty years. Ellen began her early apprenticeship with Joseph Neckermann and has made her home in Germany for the past 24 years, where she is the Manager and Senior Trainer for Mr. Schumacher at the Neuhof. Her responsibilities at the Neuhof include training Emma Hindle of GBR who competed at the 2003 European Championships in Hickstead. Ellen has also trained many German advanced level riders who have achieved top placings and championships at national competitions in Germany.
