Michelle is Far View Farm's resident dressage trainer.
A native of Colorado, Michelle is a USDF Bronze and Silver medalist. She has competed successfully through the International Dressage Federation Intermediate I level. Michelle's long time friend and trainer Heather Kennedy has been her primary influence and inspiration. Heather spent several years training at Stal Balkenhol in Germany with her own and her client's horses, and her instruction and support has been key to Michelle's Dressage education. Michelle has also trained with Stefan Wolff, Jan Ebeling, and other notable clinicians and trainers.
We are so fortunate to have Michelle at Far View Farms
Marie trains nearby at The Palms and comes over to Far View Farms to teach as well.
She worked for several years closely alongside Steffen and Shannon Peters. Her coach and mentor for many years Christine Traurig, US Olympic Bronze Medalist and current USEF Young Horse Coach, is still an integral part of her program and she lessons with her weekly to further my own education as a rider and trainer.
Far View Farms also has a lesson program for Beginner and Intermediate riders. For more information, email us!
