Katy Grosbeck

•Katy is an FEI rider with competitive experience through the CCI3*** level in eventing and Prix St. George in dressage. She also has ample experience developing young horses for careers in dressage, eventing, endurance, and other disciplines.She has studied under Ray Hunt, Buck Davidson, David O'Connor, and Hawley Bennett Awad - to name a few - and she caries many of their philosophies into her own teaching. Katy stresses the importance of effective rider position in helping the horse to develop on a foundation of forwardness and straightness; she also strives to teach riders how to be aware of the unique biomechanics of each horse's movement so that the rider may help develop the horse's physical talents in a way that complements their own natural way of going.She relies on gymnastics and accuracy exercises in her training program to keep horses strong, supple, and competition-ready.
