The SKM Dressage training program focuses on the development of both the horse and the rider. Exercises and movements are used as building blocks to advance the pair in a steady pace with focus on foundational dressage training. Through correct timing and effective use of aids, the rider learns to ride with the horse instead of just on top of it. Shaun's approach to training provides a learning environment where the horse and rider thrive at home and achieve success in the show ring. Our comprehensive training program is located at Tower Lane Farm in Auburn, Washington. Please feel free to contact Shaun to find out how SKM Dressage can tailor a training package to suit the needs of you and your equine partner.
