About clinician Kendra Clarke

Kendra Clarke/ K. Clarke Equine is a level 2 Centered Riding Instructor and a 4* Train Your Seat (formerly Franklin Method Equestrian) certified trainer specializing in the rider’s full body biomechanics. Kendra is 1 of 2 trainers in the US with this certification.

Blue is a Racewood Eventing Simulator who allows riders the opportunity to work on themselves without needing to think about the horse. Blue is capable of all of the Grand Prix dressage movements, jumps up to 3 feet, and has countless sensors to aid in analyzing how a rider is moving.

Kendra will cater each session to the needs of the group. This allows for Kendra to go in any direction needed, including the use of balls, bands, groundwork, and so much more to help riders with all sorts of challenges. Any rider can benefit from Blue, regardless if the challenges are physical or mental.
