Development of a happy, healthy, and productive horse is the number one priority, no matter what the goal may be! 

Holly Linz: dressage and working equitation trainer

Barn manager and head trainer Holly Linz always puts the health and happiness of the horse and rider first, and insists that barn staff treat all boarded horses as though they were their own.  She understands that a happy horse makes for a happy owner. Holly runs her own boarding facility so she can ensure all horses in her training program, including her own, are provided the most ideal environment to be the most capable riding partners they can be. A horses environment has a huge impact on how happy and productive they can be. 

Holly Linz is an accomplished Dressage rider, trainer, and clinician. She has studied under Felicitas von Neuman Cosel  for over 15 years, and has worked with numerous other national level trainers.  Holly’s training methods incorporate Classical Dressage principles with natural horsemanship to improve understanding and communication between horses and riders.

The focus is on building a harmonious relationship in order to help both horse and rider reach their full potential. All disciplines have found improvement with Holly’s assistance, from beginner to intermediate/advanced riders.

Fundamentals: Dressage and natural horsemanship to build better relationships

We practice classical Dressage and natural horsemanship principles to bring horses and riders together in the most effective ways to help them reach their full potential.  Whether your goal is strengthening your relationship with your horse, or reaching a new level of competition, you may find ways to reach your goals with our help.

For students interested in progressing through competition, we have an active group showing at local recognized and schooling shows in Eventing, Dressage, and Working Equitation. We also regularly host clinics with recognized officials in all three of those disciplines.
