Heather has helped her students earn their bronze, silver, and gold USDF medals. Her students have won many Regional Championship titles, competed at USDF Finals, and NAYC.

Andrea’s approach to teaching is from the point of view of most adult amateur riders. She was “one of us” for most of her riding career, but was then fortunate enough to dedicate herself to horses full-time starting in 2005. From her humble beginnings, Andrea can draw upon the common frustrations adult amatures face in moving through the levels in dressage. She is a consummate competitor and can help with show strategies and has the utmost compassion and respect for our equine partners. Join us to learn how to set both your horse and yourself up for success in Dressage.
