Lisa Blackmon, Head Trainer

Lisa's students include USDF and USEF bronze, silver and gold medalists along with a few national champions and two advanced young riders. Lisa takes great pride in her students and their accomplishments; she feels riders benefit greatly from a strong support team.

Lisa's philosophy of training for herself carries over to her philosophy of training for the horse. "As a student of classical training, I feel training of the horse must come in stages following the German scale of progression. Showing and awards is only the result of a well-trained, happy confident horse. Horses in my training program are treated as top athletes with attention to diet, health and soundness, conditioning and endurance building."

Training extends beyond the arena as Lisa attends conventions and symposiums and educational seminars to keep up with what is going on in the world of dressage. She gives freely of her time and resources to promote the sport of dressage through demonstrations, sponsorships and serving on boards where needed. Currently she is serving as a member of the board of directors for the ISR/Oldenburg Registry and the Dallas Dressage Club.

Some of Lisa's awards include:
*Devon's prestigious CDI in Grand Prix, Intermediare 1 & Prix St. Georges
*Raleigh, North Carolina CDI in Grand Prix, Intermediare 1 & Prix St. Georges
*The Heidelberg Cup Grand Prix & the ADA Festival Grand Prix Champion
