 Discover Your Potential By

Building a Solid Foundation

Auditor-Friendly Symposium

 with George Williams and Bill Warren

26-27 June 2021

Stave Mill Farm, Esmont, VA

Building a Solid Foundation ... A Symposium with 

George Williams and Bill Warren

In this exciting symposium, George Williams and Bill Warren, two nationally recognized trainers, bring their unique perspectives to help both horses and their riders maximize their full potential. Both clinicians ride and compete, as well as train horses and riders at all levels. In addition, George competed internationally with his well-known partner Rocher and is currently a USEF National US Coach, while Bill is a USEF ‘S’ and FEI 4* Judge. Working together, they will help riders discover their horse’s full potential, utilizing exercises to help riders build a solid foundation to enhance their horse’s performance, whether in the competition ring or when working at home. 


This is an auditor-friendly and live-stream symposium to allow all to take advantage of this wonderful learning opportunity.  In-person auditors will be limited to thirty-five (35) and asked to comply with COVID protocols as wearing a mask and social distancing at all times. In-person auditing is $25 per day which includes lunch, snacks, and auditor-oriented non-mounted sessions. In-person auditors will be selected in the following order – those that applied but not selected to ride, followed by VADA members. The live-streaming of the symposium will be at no cost to 2021VADA members and no restriction on participation attendance. 


Rider Application deadline is 15 April 2021 and email to Sheli King, [email protected] The application can be downloaded by clicking on the box to the left title "Rider Application".


In-Person Auditor and Virtual Participation Registration Applications will be available within the upcoming week.
