Public invited to attend clinics this weekend

mary kingMIDWAY, Ky. (Nov. 17, 2014) — Six-time Olympian Mary King—once ranked first in the world—will teach a clinic at Three Day Farm, where Transylvania University’s riders train.

The public is invited to attend the clinics from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Sunday.

“This will be a very educational experience for our team members to learn from one of the best eventing riders and trainers the sport has ever seen,” said Tanya Davis, Transylvania’s equestrian coach.

King, who is from England’s Devon County, earned Great Britain two silver medals and a bronze in team eventing in the Olympics. She also won numerous gold medals at the World Equestrian Games and European Eventing Championships.

“We are excited and lucky to have the opportunity for Mary King to come to our farm for her first clinic ever in Kentucky,” Davis said.

Transylvania riders compete in the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association, which serves more than 400 college teams in North America, and the eventing team participates in United States Eventing Association sanctioned competitions with the Intercollegiate Eventing League.
