Johnson, High Performance Director of Para-Equestrian and Vaulting Assistant to Driving at the United States Equestrian Federation commented about the May 2013 East Coast USEF LOGO clinic, “One of the goals of the USEF’s Para-Equestrian High Performance Plan is to work closely with the national affiliates and grass root athletes in order to better prepare them into becoming High Performance athletes. We want our riders capable of winning medals at future World Equestrian and Paralympic Games.  These symposiums are an invaluable tool for developing riders and High Performance athletes to learn from some of the world’s top clinicians.”
