the horse” – Karen Hamdan

DRESSAGE THE FUNDAMENTALS OF BALANCE

Dressage is the basis for Karen’s training program. The elemental principles of Dressage strengthen the connection between horse and rider, allowing them to move forward as one. 

HUNTER BEGINNER TO ADVANCED

The hunter ring is the premier classroom for Jumping 101. It is where the fundamentals of jumping are taught and ultimately mastered by those with a greater understanding of style and technique. 

JUMPING BEGINNER TO GRAND PRIX

A show jumper must routinely face a larger and more difficult course of obstacles while demonstrating both speed and accuracy. This requires the horse to have both scope, and the confidence to navigate the sharp turns and colorful fences of the more complex courses.

EQUITATION 

GRACE AND SKILL

A good Equitation rider is always in balance with the horse. They must learn to maintain a proper connection and develop a greater command of the aids with emphasis on the basic principles of straight and forward.

“Karen was a huge influence on my riding.  Before I came to her I thought I was a rider, but I was just a passenger.  Karen gave me the knowledge I needed to bring my riding to the next level. I highly recommended her as a rider, a trainer, and a riding instructor.”
