Training
       Dressage training thru FEI offered by our resident trainer Berndt von Hassler. Proud Meadows welcomed the von Hassler family in July of 2008 from their native Germany. He has over 35 years of experience in the development of horses for the sport of dressage. Mr. von Hassler is a licensed master Berufsreitlehrer by his FN, as well as a licensed judge for both jumping and dressage. He was an active member of the examination board for Bereiter and Berufsreitlehrer at the FN, as well as a delegate in the State of Bavaria for his national trade association. We are excited to have someone of Mr. von Hassler´s extraordinary ability at our farm.
Currently accepting horses for training and lessons. Trailer-ins are also welcome.
