Gail Greenough is returning to Foxstone Stable to teach Vancouver Island riders advanced jumping skills.

The Saturday and Sunday clinic hosts North America’s only World champion at the Equestrian Games. Greenough, 52, remains the only woman and the youngest to win the prestigious show jumping title.

She was also the first rider to have no faults in the World Show Jumping Championships. Greenough was champion in 1986 at Aachen, Germany, riding a horse named Mr. T (Hann).

In 1990, Greenough was made a member of the Order of Canada.

Riders of all ages have the privilege to learn from Canada’s best.

Equestrian enthusiasts can audit the clinic from a warm viewing lounge with sound.

For more information, call Foxstone Stable at 250-748-8577.
