Ready to take your riding to the next level? Sign up to ride with one of the incredible professionals at Waredaca’s Expert Day clinics! Expert clinicians offer one day dressage, cross country, or stadium practice, as well as some clinics running over multiple days to get in a little bit of each. It’s the perfect opportunity to learn from people who have proven themselves as riders in their disciplines and have proven themselves to be wonderful teachers as well. Learn about some of our regular experts below!
Who better to teach than three former Olympians-David, Jimmy and Stephen – check their bios to see their many accomplishments! All classes will focus on JUMPING, either GYMNASTIC JUMPING/COURSEWORK or CROSS COUNTRY. Cross Country will be dependent on footing and weather. Gymnastic Jumping/Course Work will be held in either the outdoor or indoor arenas.
Jimmy’s schedule runs from early morning through early afternoon. Stephen typically starts in the early afternoon and run until dark. David does one day of both courses and cross country. Small groups up to 6 will be scheduled; lesson time will be adjusted for group size.

Becky has started many equine youngsters and has trained and shown horses to FEI levels including Grand Prix.
Carolyn Del Grosso serious focus on dressage began in 1980 when the horse she was riding at the time proved not very athletic over fences. She trained and competed him to the Prix St Georges level. Shortly thereafter it became apparent that in order to move up in dressage she would need to have an imported horse as the ones being bred in the United States at the time were just beginning to improve.
With the import of Arklicht, a Hanoverian weanling, Carolyn began a journey that took her to the top levels of the sport. She was able to get her USDF bronze, silver and gold medals on him and competed through the Grand Prix level. They also did many demos over the years, sharing their love for dressage from the Cherry Blossom Parade to the Horse World Expo and beyond.
Carolyn has trained with Sally Swift, Kay Meredith, Ginna LaCroix, Walter Zettl, Linda Zang and Rebecca Langwost-Barlow. She loves taking clinics and continuing to learn!
Carolyn continues to teach students from all disciplines and levels with a couple that have made it to the FEI level. She has a laid back approach to progressing up the levels or just getting the student where they want to go.
Becky teaches 2 Wednesdays each month; Carolyn on Fridays and some Sundays mornings. For additional scheduling info, email: [email protected]
