Dressage instruction is available at Amstel Acres on your own horse, intro through second level. As a trainer, I have extensive experience with young horses or those with issues under saddle. Please see the 'Training' section for philosophy and methods. 


The most important thing when selecting an instructor is compatibility. Compatibility with you, your horse, and your needs and goals. In order to ensure I am a good fit I offer the option of a free trial lesson (for trailer-ins only). I usually spend this lesson discussing goals, needs, ideas, etc. with a client to determine if we are a good match. In the end, the client's goal is to progress in some form with their horse and I need to make an honest assessment if I am the right person for a particular combination. Usually the first lesson ends with a training plan for the upcoming months. In the event that I do not consider myself a good match, I will offer my opinion and suggestions for alternatives.
