Dressage Clinic with Michael Barisone
April 25th and 26th 2009

Barisone and Neruda solidified their place in the international dressage ranks in 2006 with two Grand
Prix wins in Florida, then they traveled to Europe and gained valuable international experience against some
of the world’s best. They returned to the U.S. and won the CDI3* Del Mar in April 2008. They were sixth
overall at the Collecting Gaits Farm/USEF Festival of Champions in June. The pair had excellent finishes at
the Saugerties CDI3* and at Dressage at Devon during the summer of 2007.

Barisone was a member of the 1999 USET Developing Rider Tour, and earned a Team Silver medal at the
Nations’ Cup in Hickstead, England. In 1997, he earned a Team Gold medal aboard Comanche at the
CDIO Hickstead in England, the first time the U.S. had ever won a dressage Nations Cup, and finished a
strong second in the Grand Prix Special behind teammate Susan Blinks.

Barisone is a U.S. Dressage Federation (USDF) Bronze, Silver and Gold medalist. He is also a former
winner of the USDF Junior/Young Rider awards at the First and Fourth levels. He was a traveling
altenate for the 2008 Olympic US Dressage Team. Come join us, either as a rider or an auditor, for two days
