Patrick Dwyer Clinic on Wednesday August 3rd

Patrick Dwyer, brother of James, will be coming to the farm this Wednesday for another day of clinic instruction!  Patrick, who trains out of Kevin Babington's barn,  has been coming to BHF for quite some time, and is a local favorite.  I've had the pleasure of doing a clinic with Patrick and walked away with several new tools for my toolbox.  He is fabulous!!

To schedule a time during the clinic, please call Missy at 484-576-3947!

Patrick Dwyer is an accomplished horseman and has been a friend of Kevin’s for many years. Pat joined Kevin in Pennsylvania several years ago to help handle the training and show horses. At that time Pat owned and operated Patrick Dwyer Show Stables in Walnut Creek, California. Kevin and Pat bought and sold horses together for years before Pat finally joined him on the East coast.

 Pat provides exceptional instruction and coaching to our riders from the children's jumper level through grand prix. He is also Kevin’s groundsman at home and at shows. He provides the most difficult service here by taking over Kevin’s amateur and grand prix students in his absence, whether it is for coaching at shows or just keeping their training program going at home. Like Kevin, Pat’s riding and teaching foundation comes from Iris Kellet’s classical training program in Ireland. In the early 1990’s, Pat served as Iris Kellet’s second rider under International rider John Hall and he was the assistant instructor for Ms. Kellet for many years. The similar foundation Kevin and Pat share make it easy for clients to transition between the two trainers.
