Services & Credentials

Donna believes in the respectful training of horse and rider and that where force begins, art ends. In English dressage, her approach has led her to a team gold at the 1999 Pan Am Games and multiple national awards at Grand Prix. In Western dressage, she has recently earned a World Championship in Costumed Freestyle at the 2017 WDAA Championship show. Her students have been equally successful winning at state and national levels. Donna feels dressage helps horse and rider achieve mutual understanding and that this relationship is the goal of all the training. Showing can be important, but it is the icing on the cake. Balance is balance, and a soft hand to a soft mouth is the same regardless of what type of saddle we choose to use. Dressage is for all types of horses and riders.
