This is a Ride-a-Test clinic with Sandra Hotz, a FEI 3* Judge and a USET "S" Judge. Sandy teaches all levels up to Grand Prix. She stresses correct basic training at each level, and emphasizes the rider’s position and seat as a major influence on the horse’s ability to perform at his best. The horse’s well-being and clear understanding of his work are of utmost importance. She believes that a happy horse is one who is guided by kind, clear, consistent aids by his rider so that understanding and trust develops, allowing for the creation of a genuine “team.” Sandy’s teaching style is positive and creative.She constantly seeks out the most appropriate solutions to training problems, realizing that no two horses or riders respond in the same way. This approach creates a unique partnership between trainer, horse and rider.Sandy Hotz’s Qualifications and Accomplishments:FEI 3* JudgeUnited States Equestrian Federation “S” JudgeTrained extensively in Germany with the late Herbert Rehbein, one of Germany’s most influential riding mastersTrained extensively in Germany with Belgian riding master, Jan NivelleTrained five seasons with Olympian, Robert DoverReceived a scholarship to train with Diana Mukpo, one of the few women ever admitted as a student to the Spanish Riding School, Vienna, AustriaTrained five years with Steve Kanikkeberg, Grand Prix winner at the Palm Beach Dressage DerbyTrained in Florida with Debbie McDonald and Kathy Connelly during the 2012-2013 winter seasonParticipated in numerous clinics, notably with the renowned Harry Boldt, Conrad Schmacher, Bo Jena, and Arthur Kottas of the Spanish Riding SchoolRecipient of the 1998 Asmis/US Equestrian Team Scholarship to train and compete abroadTrained numerous horses to the FEI levelTrained several young riders to the FEI levelPrepared and coached students at NAYRC and U.S. National Junior Dressage Championships1982-present: Won numerous USEF Qualifying classes for championships at first level through FEI levels, including Freestyle, all on self trained horses.As a young rider qualified for and competed in -North American Young Riders Dressage Championships and U.S. National Dressage ChampionshipsWon USDF performance award at third level (1986)USDF National Reserve Champion at third level (1986)Competed successfully at shows including: CDI Devon-1997, 1992, 1990, 1989 (PA)Palm Beach Dressage Derby, Wellington Dressage, Orlando, Miami (FL)Eastern Regional Dressage Finals (VA), Long Island Dressage (NY) and many others
