Brody Robertson

Brody Robertson is a third generation equestrian.  As Brody's parents were both international Grand Prix riders, it was no surprise that in a short time, he too would become a top ranked Grand Prix rider and trainer, judge, course designer, member of the USEF's Central Region Jumper Committee, and USHJA Jumper Council Committee Chair member.  Altamonte' Show Stable was created in 1989, shortly after Brody won both Individual and Team Gold Medals at the U.S. Olympic Sports Festival.  

Brody's reputation for beautiful, high quality jumps spread and eventually became, Brody Robertson Show Jumps. We take great pride in our jumps, made right here in North America. If you dream it, we can work with you to build it.  With all his experience Brody's clinic is going to help you excel in the jumping and hunter rings.  Clinic Entry Form 2017

Steve Lantvit
Stock Horses/Gaited Horses

Renowned  award  winning  equine  clinician,  Steve  Lantvit,  has captivated  RFD-TV  viewers  with  a  fresh  and  innovative  approach  to training  individuals  and  horses  coupled  with  years  of  experience  and knowledge.   Steve believes in training versatile, well-rounded, capable horses and riders through confidence, mutual respect, and solid communication. He promotes versatility through cross-training and a variety of experiences to improve both performance and attitude in the show pen or out on the trail.   Steve’s   foundation   is   derived   from   the   practical application   of   top   level   performance   and   skills,   funneled   into   a philosophy that allows all riders to succeed. This Philosophy centers around building a riders confidence in all environments  by  ensuring  safety  in  situations  that  could  otherwise become chaotic and dangerous.  Providing  riders  with  the  ability  to  control  the  range  in  which their  horses  operate,  creates  a  safe  and  more controlled  environment  which  then  opens  up the  door  to  better  learning  for  both  horse  and rider. This is accomplished by sorting through the  issues,  isolating  the  root  cause  that  is  key to  all  other  deficiencies  in  order  to  propel  the rider  forward  in  achieving  a  higher  level  of confidence and ability.   Steve’s    approach    enables    all riders   at   any   level   to   harness   the confidence   that   is   essential   in   all aspects of riding, inspiring a transition which   will   provide   both  horse   and rider  the  necessary  skills  to Ride  for Real.
Steve's accomplishments include multiple World Champion and Reserve World Champion titles in Ranch Horse Associations by himself and his clients in Youth and Amateur divisions. Steve takes his skills to the equine world through his appearances at equine expos, clinics, and his television series,  Steve Lantvit “Sure in the Saddle” airing on RFD-TV on Thursdays at 3pm EST & 11pm EST.
