Kathleen McCoy was educated in classical dressage at the University of Berlin in Germany. Riding and training professionally for over 20 years, she specializes in dressage, but works with many disciplines, breeds and levels of riders, as she believes dressage can help any horse. Her greatest influence was Dr. Reiner Klimke, known for his kind and gentle techniques.
Kathleen’s training philosophy is strongly based on the training pyramid, with focus on communication and harmony between horse and rider. She is pursuing USDF Instructor Certification, successfully completed all Pre-Certification Workshops (longeing, riding, teaching), and passed Pre-Certification Testing.
She is an experienced competitor and coach for students interested in showing, and has judged schooling shows through 3rd Level. Resume and recommendations upon request.
