Finally Updates…and there are quite a few!

It has been busy seeming like the Holidays just plowed right into spring! (almost). We have had relocations, additions and a little reconstruction of business.

KATIE HAS RELOCATED TO COLORADO! She has expanded Artisan Dressage to Greenwood Village just outside of Denver. She moved in early Feb. Her job is at a private barn and she is having the opportunity  to share her young rider knowledge with 5 young aspiring riders!!!! I am excited to go there and visit!

NEW BABY!!! On March 6th Ellie’s mare Cappy gave birth to an adorable filly, Feline, by Freestyle. After 2 weeks of sleeping in the barn with a VERY fussy mare she had a quiet birth we were able to witness.

CLINICS: I have taken over Katie’s clinics in Los Angeles area (Palos Verdes Penn and Long Beach). Next one April 1st What a nice group of people and horses. I also continue to go to Ramona as well, next one is April 21st. Please contact me if you are interested in riding.


Mar 24, 4 riders from the LA area are competing in Somis and I will accompany them, as coach only. GOOD LUCK Pam, Lena, Karen and Lisa. 🙂

In San Diego we are hoping to participate in the Creek Hollow CDS show on April 7th, Temecula April 14 & 15  and Del Mar National April 26.
