There are teachers, trainers and show-riders: A person who succeeds in one category isn't guaranteed success in the others.
These skills must be learned separately.
As a professional dressage instructor in NY, it's a pleasure to share my extensive education in classical dressge with my students and horses. I teach riders to think and perform independently. I learned my system from great masters in Europe. I rode with many Olympic trainers and Reitmeisters who were recognized as some of the best in the world. One of my specialties is training young horses to be a pleasure to ride and to excel in FEI competition. Only superb basics lead to great results at international levels. My methods are based on effective, classical techniques that promote understanding, fairness and happiness in both horse and rider. My students realize that success is a byproduct that is derived from the effective execution of a detailed process. I provide the roadmap for this endeavor.
