Jane Savoie Clinic - Ottawa, ON

It was wonderful to finally meet World-renowned Olympic coach, author and speaker Jane Savoie, who has been riding in ECOGOLD's Stabilizer Dressage saddle pads for a few years. She gave a clinic last weekend at Northern Equestrian Centre in Ottawa, sponsored by ECOGOLD.

The clinic was phenomenal! Positive training with a positive attitude. Two thumbs up for Jane, a wonderful teacher who simplifies the complicated and puts riders & horses at ease. (kudos to Aliy Brebner & Trish Roberts, organizers-in-chief).

All riders at the clinic rode in ECOGOLD's WitherCare saddle pads.

Here are some photos of the event:
