Polocrosse and Jumping Clinics

From clinics in outdoor arenas in Alaska, to the fitness center at Dartmouth and to conventions like the United States Pony Club National
Symposium, I've always loved working with Sally. I'm continually in awe of her dedication to her riders, horses and our entire sport. Sally is not just
a trainer or coach, she's a mentor to everyone she teaches and leaves us all a little bit better, braver and bolder than we were before we met her.
-Daniel Stewart, International Equestrian clinician and author.

Sally Batton transformed the Dartmouth College riding program into a collegiate powerhouse that has won numerous titles. Sally is a consummate
teacher. She runs a winning program and I recommend her without reservation.
-Denny Emerson, Eventing International Gold Medalist and author

Sally has been teaching clinics in Alaska for years now, and Jai Capalian has been lucky enough to have her teach for our club each year. Sally has a very approachable and positive style and works well with all ages and all abilities. We have appreciated her flexibility over the years, as she has taught stand alone clinics but has also been part of regional and club camps. She will cater her teaching to whatever your club needs. She teaches Polocrosse (which typically both children and adults love!) as well as flat work and jumping. I guarantee if you host Sally for a clinic, you will want her back each year!
