I am an experience dressage trainer based in Locust Grove, VA at Hawthorne Farm Equestrian Center. I am available for lessons on and off site. I also offer competition services for dressage shows, clinics on and off site and can assist in selling or acquiring a horse for you. Please see below my experiences, training, and accomplishments, as well as links to my centerline scores, website, and facebook page.

Experience and Training:

I have worked with some of the best in the industry. Having trained at St. Jacques Equestrian, and Valhalla Trakehner Farm, I received a solid foundation in dressage. I then went to LTR Dressage in Dallas, Texas to be an assistant trainer for three years, where I learned the art of competition, as well as to advance my understanding of the subtleties of the sport. To further refine my knowledge of the intricacies of dressage, I moved to Destin, Florida to train under and work for Jodie Kelly. Jodie has been an amazing influence in my riding. My ideas of the suppleness of the horse, the gymnastic work needed to create true collection, and the upper level movements come from my time training with Jodie. I believe every horse can benefit from dressage training, every rider can communicate more easily with their partner, and real connection can be made between every pair. I believe in creating a bond between horse and rider; to create ride-ability in the horse and to develop subtle aids in the rider. I enjoy seeing the progress of a healthy, happy horse, to work transitions, to develop collection, and to train the advanced movements while always keeping a supple topline.
