Elaine Owensby has over 30 years of coaching and training experience

Elaine believes it is not always about having the best horse but making the horse you have the best it can be.

After competing and training successfully in England and Germany through Grand Prix she moved to the United States where she met Sandra Fitzpatrick who ownes the mare Wonderland, Elaine's main competition horse.  She is now building a solid reputation here, having produced horses and riders that are succesful at a National level and competing herself to Intermediare 1 in the United States on self made horses. 

She will provide a solid foundation and set clear goals towards your destination.  Elaine's scores in the show ring reflect her proper schooling techniques and precision to which she rides.

About Elaine Owensby 

Straight Forward Classical
Dressage Training

Having grown up in Europe, Elaine Owensby, was
lucky enough to get her foundation riding with some
of the best Europe has to offer.  Like the late
Josef Neckermann, a member of the National Olympic Committee with numerous Olympic Medals and European Championships.  Working with Peter Trappmann who trained under the great Harry Boldt, former National Coach for Germany with Olympic Gold Medals and numerous European Championships. 

Elaine is extreemly successful working with a varierty of different breeds incuding Warmbloods, TB's,  Andalusians and Friesians.  She is also very experianced in working with stallions and mares as well as geldings.  Having had the chance to sit on a variety of horses, her educated seat and extensive experience working with both young and made horses, gives her the ability to correctly train horses through the levels to Grand Prix.

Elaine believes in building a solid foundation from which to grow and is a slave to the classical principles, wanting her horses and students to not just learn tricks but have a clear understanding of all the aids.  "Holes in basic training will come back to haunt you, it is easier to be correct from the start than to fix and re-train later."
