Gateway Riding Center offers regular clinics on a wide variety of topics. Past clinicians have included Vitor Silva, Paul Belasik and David DeWispelaere.

Our featured clinician is Vitor Silva, a classically-trained riding master from the Sons of the Wind School of Equestrian Arts in Merrimac, Mass.

Many of Gateway’s riders, including head trainer Jonelle Reuland, regularly visit Sons of the Wind for riding and training lessons and workshops on Vitor’s classically-trained Lusitanos.

Gateway has had the privilege of hosting Vitor Silva clinics several times a year since September 2001. These popular clinics, which fill quickly, emphasize the development of horse and rider. Vitor shares his special expertise in teaching and training through lessons, training sessions, longeing, long lining and special workshops and symposiums. For more information on Vitor Silva and the Sons of the Wind School of Equestrian Arts please see his website: www.sonsofthewindfarm.com

A Vitor Silva Clinic at Gateway Riding Center
was featured in The Instructor Spotlight in the February 2006 issue of Dressage Today.
This clinic focused on how Vitor uses the art
of long lining to teach the rider to improve feel
and timing. Working with Jonelle Reuland
mounted on the Lusitano Obscuro, Vitor
executed a half pass right with balance
and straightness.
