Olympian Laura Graves conducted four clinics at Ohana Equestrian Preserve located just east of the town of Middleburg on Tuesday, Aug. 14.
Graves who represented the United States at the 2016 Summer Olympics won a bronze medal in the team dressage competition. She worked with riders of all levels and later shared her experience with them in a Q&A session followed by an autograph signing session.
Ohana owners, Melissa and Jim Pankas, recently completed a new facility which includes a 100′ x 200′ indoor riding arena with Attwood TerraNova footing, 20 horse stalls, office/viewing space, restrooms, laundry and multiple tack, feed, grooming and wash stall areas.
The state-of-the-art training facility in Aldie includes an outdoor regulation 20×60 meter dressage arena, gazebo for viewing, stone dust pathways and paddocks with hydrants and electricity.
