J. ASHTON MOORE | [w] http://www.osierlea.com


Jeff Moore is an International Judge and international dressage, jumping and vaulting clinician. He is the Co-Founder and Executive Director of the Dutch Warmblood Registry in North America as well as the Co-Founder of the American Vaulting Association. Jeff concentrates on dressage and vaulting after however has successfully competed in hunter/jumpers, eventing, driving, quadrille, and sport horse breeding. He trains horses through the FEI Grand Prix level at his training facility, Osierlea, in San Juan Bautista, California. He coaches national and international level dressage and vaulting competitors at Osierlea and at clinics throughout the USA and abroad.

 

Jeff is a pioneer in the field of rider and horse biomechanics.  He is a firm believer that once the rider's core is stabilized communication can truly begin with the horse.  He says, "a better understanding of how horses and humans function - independently, and as a centaur - encourages more insightful, more systematic, and kinder training methods as well as more knowledgeable judging."

 

Jeff is also the author of the USDF Judge's Handbook, the USDF Judges Checklist, and the USDF Glossary of Judging Terms, which is adapted by the FEI.  His mastery of terms can be illuminating.  He is never at a loss for words to give the rider the information they need to master a skill or an analogy to further understand the substance.

  • USEF Sporthorse Breeding Judge
