Join us for a cross country clinic with 4* rider Tim Bourke
Tim Bourke has established himself as a top rider and sought-after trainer. Growing up in Westport Co. Mayo, Ireland, Tim inherited his love for horses from his grandmother. Upon graduation, Tim was looking for a job and career direction and through mutual friends found himself on a plane headed Stateside to the legendary Bruce Davidson’s farm. Three months turned into two years working for Bruce, and Tim credits Bruce for starting him on the path towards establishing a life in the United States. Tim was the assistant trainer for Sharon White for 6 years and competed all the sales horses. Tim was named to the Irish High Performance list and has completed his top horse, Luckaun Quality at Rolex Kentucky CCI4* 3 times and Burghley CCI4* in 2015. Recently, he finished 5th at the CIC3* at the Carolina International Horse Trials.
We expect to have 5 groups of 4 to 5 riders, riding for 1 ½ hour sessions. Riders will be grouped similarly by experience. Group assignments and times will be available May 11th by email and posted to USEA Area 2 Adult Riders Facebook page.
