LAURA GRAVES and her horse, Verdades, need no introduction to dressage enthusiasts.


Laura and "Diddy" won the FEI World Cup Finals - Dressage Grand Prix Paris 2018!

Verdades was USDF Grand Prix Horse of the Year 2017, and they are ranked 3rd in the FEI World Standings. This combination represented the USA in 2016 Summer Olympics ensuring a team bronze. Laura is one of the most successful USA dressage riders of all time. Her training is steeped in solid background of USDF instructors, Anne Gribbons, and Debbie McDonald. 

Laura has an accessible demeanor and makes riding light and fun despite its demands. 

Auditors are welcome and are encouraged, but recommend pre-registration for full-day auditors.

USEF Update on COVID-19: Suspension Extended

The original 30-day suspension that became effective March 16, 2020, is being extended through May 3, 2020. Effective today, all USEF owned events, selection trials, training camps, clinics and activities will be suspended through May 3, 2020 consistent with recommendations by the CDC. Due to the importance of keeping the members of our equestrian community and their families safe, USEF strongly recommends that competition organizers suspend all USEF licensed competitions across the country and that equestrians do not compete for this same time period. For those competitions that choose to run and can do so in accordance with the CDC, State, and Local recommendations, there will be no accumulation or points, scores, money won, qualifications, or rankings toward any USEF award programs, USEF owned events, or selection to a US team during this time period. This includes USEF National Championships.

This means the Laura Graves Clinic is now cancelled. We will try to reschedule it sometime in 2021 because Laura has no dates in 2020. We will refund all riders and auditors. Everyone please be patient as we work on the refunds. Everyone, we are in this together and stay safe.
