               3-D Horsemanship

Why our name? 3-D Horsemanship actually stands for "3-Dimentional". Our training programs for both our horses and our riders are truly 3-Dimentional. Through 3 trainers we are able to do everything from foal training to Grandprix. Our riders learn many different styles on training so that they may be well prepared for each horse as an individual.

Classical Dressage training is beneficial to horses & riders across all disciplines!

Lisa has competed in Dressage for over 25 years, in many different arenas on many different horses for both Open Dressage and Eventing and most recently Western Dressage.

Lisa has trained with and clinic'd with many trainers over the years, including Gerd Heuschmann, Michael Poulin, Elisabeth Heber, Stacey Hastings, and Helen Moore.

     Even if you are not a "Dressage" rider, we encourage you to try a
       lesson with us.

“…dressage is the art of improving one’s horse beyond the stage of plain usefulness, of making him more amenable, easier to control, pleasanter to ride, more graceful in his bearing and better to look upon.” W. Wynmalen

We consider ourselves a "classical" training facility because although we spend quite a bit of time in the competition arenas, we are not focused on the competition as our goal. Our sole goal is the sound and natural developmental training of our horses, we go to competitions once our horses have achieved that level, we do not sign up for competitions and then push our horses to get there. Competing is a lot of fun, but it should be done with the welfare of the horse as the primary concern.

"The human that participates in equestrian sport with his horse must subject himself, as well as his horse, to training. The goal of any training is to bring about the best possible harmony between horse and rider."
