Rita Timpanaro began riding as a child under the guidance of Frank and Wayne Carroll and Bernie Traurig. As a junior rider, she was a member of the Pony Club and qualified for level I and Level II Dressage. Beginning at 12 years of age, she qualified for the National ASPCA and AHSA (presently USEF) Medal Equitation Championship Finals. She was a ribbon winner in each of the Finals for five consecutive years and placed in the AHSA Junior Jumper year-end award. She competed in the Madison Square Garden National Horse Show, and at age 12, rode her horse to a win in a Junior Hunter Class. At age 13, she was awarded the ASPCA National Equitation Reserve Championship. At 16, she went on to win the AHSA (presently USEF) Hunter Seat Medal Finals. Rita incorporates into her clinics the system she has developed during her extensive career as a rider, trainer and USEF judge. She loves teaching riders of all ages and levels of riding! From a judge's perspective, each clinic is based on the American Hunter Jumper Forward System of riding and training horses. In 2011-2016, Rita served as a USHJA Certified Trainer and was honored to be a USHJA Certified Clinician.
