Our emphasis is on dressage and combined training based in a sound foundation of classical training and balance seat riding. We also specialized in flatwork for hunter equitation riders.

We have brought many horses and riders local, regional, and national acclaim over the past 25 years. Honors include Horse of the Year Awards and rider medals for the Wisconsin Dressage and Combined Training Association, United States Equestrian Federation, and United States Dressage Federation. We are proud of the success of our students over the years and are pleased to provide intensive training for competition for those with high aspirations. We also occasionally have a top quality show horse for lease to a qualified student. You are invited to visit us to watch and instruction or training session and to discuss your competition goals. We would be happy to design a program suited to your needs, means, and objectives, whether it is to win your first ribbon or be part of an international team.
