What is Grand Oaks Equestrian all about?
I believe in teaching my students the basics of classical Dressage, challenging them with exercises, schooling shows, and recognized shows. I use my experience and training, both as an instructor and a rider to bring skill and enthusiasm in helping my students achieve their goals."
I have been an avid Dressage enthusiast since my first lesson in the summer of 1980. Coming from a western background the precision and challenge of Dressage hooked me, so much so that after college I decided to enter an apprenticeship with Paul Kathen at Texover Farms. After two years apprenticing, I continued to teach and train at Texover for another two years. Since 1994 I've been exclusively in the Clear Lake / Friendswood / Alvin area, teaching, training and showing.
