Expert Day Coordinator for ALL the Experts is Liz Schoeder: [email protected]
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. We occasionally feature Guest Experts.
Who better to teach JUMPING other than two former Olympians and an aspiring one? Check out Jimmy’s, Stephen’s, and Sharon’s bios below 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 arena. And our Dressage Experts are equally accomplished equestrians and horsewomen!
We now have Woods Baughman joining Sharon, from Last Frontier Farm, offering specific instruction on fundamental skills so important in the safety and success of Eventing! We are very excited about this new format and hope you will find it worthwhile!

All three Jumping Experts are here most months, offering continuity and systematic progress for each student. Jimmy’s schedule runs from early morning through early afternoon. Stephen typically starts in the early afternoon. On their dates, Sharon and Woods will begin mid-afternoon and teach through the evening, accommodating those clients who work during the day. Jump lessons are small groups and organized by level.
