More Info



It is with much regret that The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair must postpone the upcoming April 25 event until further notice. After much research and review, we have confirmed with relevant authorities that the recent COVID ‘Stay at Home’ order does not provide us with the ability to operate under the current legislation in the Province of Ontario. It is our intention to host the clinic prior to the end of September 2021. We will be reviewing possible dates with the intention of avoiding conflicts with currently scheduled competitions. Thank you for your understanding. We will provide further information once an alternate date has been scheduled.

Your opportunity to attend an immersive one-day clinic with reigning Canadian Show Jumping Champion, Beth Underhill awaits! As a Canadian Equestrian Team member, former Chef d’Equipe for the North American Young Riders team and Jump Canada Youth Program Advisor, Beth is in a unique position to provide quality instruction as well as technique and training input for you and your horse. The one-day, intensive jumper clinic will take place April 25, 2021 at Valhalla Stables in King, Ontario. With limited spaces available at each height/level, athletes must apply for an invitation to participate. Please download the application form below. All applications must be returned to no later than 5:00 pm, April 5, 2021. COVID and EHV-1 protocols will be in place according to municipal regulations at time of clinic.
