Wild Rose Farm is proud to have Katrina "Katie" Hiller as our dressage trainer. Katie is a Grand Prix dressage rider. She started riding at the age of 6 and competing at age 8. Katie has earned her USDF Bronze, Silver and Gold medals, all aboard a self-trained horse.
Katie's experience ranges from backing and starting young horses to competing in the highest level of dressage, the Grand Prix. She strives to achieve harmony, suppleness and lightness in every horse she trains. She believes in building a trusting partnership with all horses and enhancing their individual spirit through an encouraging and gymnastic training program.
It is Katie's mission to "carry the torch" of classical dressage training and to prove that success, both at home and in the show ring, can be achieved by a training program founded by classical principles and compassionate riding.
Wild Rose Farm is proud to add Kelsey Welter of Helicon Horsemanship as a trainer at the farm. Kelsey's experience and philosophies are outlined in the photos and text below.
