Frank Madden 

Frank returns for the third year to conduct this extremely popular clinic. He's head trainer and co-owner of Capital Hil and is widely recognized as one of the most successful and dedicated trainers of young and developing show jumping talent in the United States. He has trained several of the most promising junior equitation and junior amateur jumper riders - riders who have the potential to represent the United States at the highest levels of international competition. Frank coached Jenno Topping to the USEF Medal win in 1985 and Stacia Klein to the ASPCA Maclay Championship in 1987. Frank was also the chef d'équipe of two Young Rider jumper teams, at Monterrey in 1997 and at the North American Young Rider Championships in 1998. In addition to his training, Frank is also a top "R" judge and a published author.

           

Frank Madden and several of his top riders were featured in the 2005 Animal Planet television series "Horse Power: The Road to the Maclay." Animal Planet filmed Brianne Goutal making history as the first junior rider to win all the major equitation finals with her 2005 wins in both the USEF Medal Finals and the ASPCA Maclay Finals.
 

Frank’s riders have also earned many coveted "Style of Riding" awards at events such as the Washington International and the Devon Horse Shows, as well as winning top honors in all of this country's major finals and championships year after year.

His clinics focus on the ability of the rider and horse to communicate effectively no matter the discipline, breed or level of training.
