Angela Ridgway Dressage Events include clinics with FEI 4 star judge Jane Weatherwax and Olympian Heather Blitz.
Heather Blitz represented the U.S. at the 2011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico, in 2011, riding her own and Robert McKean’s Danish Warmblood gelding, Paragon. There, she won individual silver and was part of the gold-medal team effort. Blitz and Paragon were named reserve for the 2012 Olympics in London.
Recent highlights for Blitz include wins in the CDI3* Grand Prix and second place in the Grand Prix Freestyle with Semper Fidelis, an Oldenburg mare owned by Rowan O’Riley, at the 2019 AGDF. Blitz and Semper Fidelis were also part of the team that took home bronze from the 2019 FEI Dressage Nations Cup™ France in 2019.
Jane Weatherwax is an FEI 4-star judge (previously called ‘I’ rated) as well as a U.S. Equestrian Federation and Equine Canada ‘S’ judge. She judges extensively throughout the U.S. and Canada, and has judged continental Championships in both Europe and North America. Most recently, she was on the panel of judges at the U.S. Selection Trials for the 2012 London Olympics.
Jane had the honor of judging the 2007 Pan American Games held in Brazil. Jane also was the clinician for the 2011 CDS Adult Amateur clinics. Traveling the world as the daughter of a career naval officer, she received her foundation in dressage while living in Europe.
