June 24th and 25th
Holly Hugo - Vidal Clinic

Holly Hugo - Vidal is originally from the east coast, growing up in Westchester County, New York, mainly Bedford Village, where she lived for many years. It was during this time when she had the opportunity to train with the legendary horseman (and current USET Chief D’Equipe) George H. Morris, who has remained a stron influence throughout her career, as well as writing the foreword for her book. Rodney Jenkins, another legendary figure has also played an important role as one of the most naturally gifted riders (Hunters and Jumpers) of all time. His influence of always putting the well being of the horse first, as well as his tremendous understanding of the horses is always with Holly.

Another strong influence was her former husband, Victor Hugo-Vidal, with whom she ran the successful show barn, Cedar Lodge Farm in Stamford, Connecticut. Victor’s great aptitude for teaching along with Rodney’s unique riding ability and George Morris’ dedication and high standards all contribute to Holly’s method used today. Many of Holly’s methods and exercises are very evident in her new book, Build Confidence Over Fences published by Primedia. Holly specializes in hunters and equitation and works with juniors and adults, with the main requirement being a love for horses and learning. Holding a registered judge’s license in the Hunter and Hunt Seat Equitation Divisions, she has judged many horse shows and given clinics all across the United States as well as in Panama and New Zealand.
