Our Dressage Lessons and Training

As a world-class facility, Locks Edge is a superb location for dressage riders who want to keep their horses in a fun but serious training environment. All boarders have access to our resident trainer, Jordan Rich, who is not only an admirable natural horseman, but a reputable rider at the higher levels. He shows at the Intermediare I and Prix St. George level, and has claimed both a USDF silver and bronze medal.  As a boarder, you are able to participate in lessons with Jordan in our expansive arenas, or even have him work up and train a greener horse at the upper levels.

Aside from dressage lessons and training from Jordan, we regularly host upper-level dressage clinics and encourage all of our riders to continue to strive to better their form, balance, and skill level. Our clinics are intimate affairs, so you will always be sure to get the most from each and every one. If you can’t ride in one clinic, we offer the option for you to audit.
