Teaching

Can You Ever Know Enough?

Brads teaching style incorporates helpful exercises, theoretical explanations, and the right balance of humor and praise to make the time enjoyable for both horse and rider. Through his lessons, he is constantly encouraging and inspiring the rider to expect more from themselves and their horses.

Every client who trains at Landmark will develop a set strategy and clear understanding of how to achieve his or her personal riding goals.

Because of Brad's extensive experience and acheivements, some beginning riders may be concerned they are not advanced enough to study at Landmark Farms. However, nothing could be further from the truth! Whether you are just starting the journey into the world of dressage or are an upper level rider, Landmark Farms dressage teaching and training will help you maximize your potential.

Landmark Farms offers extensive instructional services including trailer-in lessons for all ages and levels of horses and riders. We have many training options available, ranging from lessons to full training and competitive strategy planning.

“In the years Ymer and I have worked with Brad, we have reached goals I would never believe possible. From a First Level horse and rider all the way to Grand Prix! The love of the horse and the patience to teach even when nothing seems to work are some of Brad’s amazing qualities. He continuously brings out the best of both horse and rider”

Lena Warner and Ymer

"I have been a student of Brad's for 9 years now, I was a hunt seat rider for many years before that and decided it was time for dressage. The best thing that happened was having Brad train me and my horses, he was very patient and understanding with the transition. He always made it fun and informative, now I am showing Prix St. George and training the Grand Prix movements."

Dressage Training

The key to our success has been finding out how the horse prefers to work, and what makes them happiest. This involves getting them comfortable in their training and, equally important, their mind and body. If your horse is comfortable and happy, they will not only work for you but with you.
