"John Pearce, originally from Canada, and now based in California, has been a very good friend to Rocky Mountain Horse Rescue. John has been a member of the Canadian Equestrian Team, and represented Canada at the Olympics and the World Championships. Two years ago, John offered to teach a jumping clinic to benefit the rescue, and has done it for us yearly since. 100% of the proceeds of this clinic go directly to RMHR. Not only that, but this clinic is the only clinic John does all year. This year, he taught for about eight hours just for us!! He‘s a great horseman and a super human being. Thank you John!! On July 30 of this year, John Pearce once again graciously gave a jumping clinic to benefit the Rocky Mountain Horse Rescue. With the help of Tommy McIntyre and his fantastic crew, the main jumper ring at the Estes Park Fairgrounds was the venue for this excellent clinic. As always, John‘s main focus was on understanding each horse, and tailoring the ride and exercises to suit a particular horse‘s needs and abilities. He started each group with flat work, working on getting the horses relaxed and focused. When the groups began to jump, he emphasized adaptability, first getting the horse to stay on a more compressed step, and eventually working up to a forward, open ride. All the horses and riders had a great, positive learning experience, and were able to ride with one of the most successful jumper riders in America, while benefiting the rescue. It was a great day! Thank you John gives instruction to the riders again John!!"
"Loved John's Clinic! He broke it down STEP BY STEP, and I walked away with profound knowledge and a different outlook in my skills. Thanks for all the hard work putting it together, looking forward to the next one!!!!"
"John was so gracious and generous with
his time and all the participants gained
knowledge and insight from this remarkable rider and great man."
