We are fortunate to have a variety of renowned clinicians and Florida’s top trainers visit us regularly.
An hour and a half from Wellington or Orlando, three hours from Ocala and located right on the beautiful Treasure Coast – we are perfectly situation for visiting trainers and riders to stop on by. It doesn’t get much better than training next to the palm trees in Vero Beach at Copper Light Farm!
Weekly we welcome local trainers such as Claudia Tarlov and Debbie Stephens. And we are tickled to regularly host top clinicians such as Scott Hassler and FEI Judge Sarah Geikie. Look for online auditing of our next clinic and don’t hesitate to tell us who you want to ride with next at Copper Light.
Scott Hassler is an internationally respected trainer competitor and in-demand master clinician. Scott brings his lifelong experience training dozens of horses to the Grand Prix level and successfully competing nationally and internationally as both a rider and as a coach. Renowned as a young horse expert, he helped develop USEF’s National Young Horse Program as coach for 10 years, conducting clinics and symposiums, coaching national young horse selection trials and championships and taking teams to the world championships for young horses.
Sarah’s strength comes from her unique ability to combine her eye as an FEI 4* Dressage judge with 40+ years’ of experience training horses and riders to FEI levels. Sarah’s approach places a strong emphasis on educating both horse and rider on training fundamentals. Her mission is to cultivate the knowledge, skills, freedom and confidence of riders who are eager to learn and who enjoy the process of learning together with their horse. She enjoys producing correctly trained, educated horses and riders with methods free from coercion or force.
