World champion hunter rider Liza Towell Boyd, her father, Jack Towell, and The Camden Hunt have teamed up to host a hunter/jumper clinic at the Towell family’s Finally Farm in Camden on Nov. 29 and 30.
The two-day clinic format will feature three two-hour sessions for riders of all ages and riding experience, from cross-rails to fence heights of 3-foot-6. In addition to the combinations of flat-work and jumping sessions which will be conducted each day, there will be an interactive lunch break which will provide participants the opportunity to ask both clinicians questions in an intimate, yet engaging environment.
“I’m really excited about the upcoming clinic,” Boyd said. “I’ve been blessed with a wonderful family, amazing lifelong riding experiences and fantastic ponies and horses. I’m looking forward to sharing what I’ve learned with those who love this sport. With the recent growth of the scholastic equestrian programs, there are many young riders in Camden and the surrounding areas that I hope to meet.”
As the show season winds down and everyone take a moment to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, the Towell family and Finally Farm --- located off Firetower Rd. in Camden --- and longtime members of The Camden Hunt wanted to work with the group’s leadership in giving back to the local community/hunt country.
“We are very grateful for Jack and Liza’s offer to conduct this clinic as a fundraiser for the Hunt,” said Sue Sensor, Camden Hunter MFH. “Not only will the proceeds be beneficial in maintaining a safe horse/rider-friendly riding environment, they will also be helpful in making necessary improvements to the hunt’s kennels.
“We are particularly fortunate, too, in that our fellow Camden residents and clinicians are considered to be among the nation’s top hunter-jumper riders and instructors. What a great opportunity to experience their knowledge, first-hand.”
The 203 show season has been a stellar one, indeed, for Boyd and her family in the hinter world’s winners’ circle. Not only was Boyd crowned the World Champion Hunter rider at September’s Capital Challenge Horse Show aboard Quatrain, a horse which she owns with Janet Peterson, but she and her mount, Brunello (also co-owned by Peterson), captured the pinnacle prize by winning the United States Hunter Jumper Association International Hunter Derby National Finals held last August at the Kentucky Horse Park.
“I suppose saying that I’m proud of my daughter would be an understatement,” Towell said with a chuckle. “All of us at Finally Farm work really hard but, we work together as a team and have the utmost respect for one another.
Auditing is available for those who may not be able to ride in the clinic. Please not that each rider does received one auditing ticket. Auditors may being their own chairs.
