Cynthia Hankins Clinic for Grier Riders
Expert equestrian Cynthia Hankins led a two-day clinic for Grier riders last week. In addition to several top placements during her competitive career, Cynthia won the American Horse Show Association Medal Finals in 1975 and is now a top clinician affiliated with the US Hunter Jumper Association’s Emerging Athletes Program. She shared her knowledge and expertise with small groups of Grier riders over the course of two days.
In addition to her junior equestrian accolades, Cynthia holds a USEF R-rated judge's license in both Hunter and Hunter Seat Equitation, has judged numerous shows in the U.S. and France, including several equitation finals. She also contributes to publications such as The Chronicle of the Horse and Practical Horseman.
Grier riders and their coaches Chrystal, Frannie, and Lauren were thrilled to have the opportunity to learn from Cynthia. We are so thankful she was able to visit Grier and provide this enriching experience to our riders!
