Training

At Hassler Dressage, we are committed to the quality development of the dressage horse through the levels, from giving a young horse a good foundation all the way up to producing the polished Grand Prix competitor. We believe every horse is an individual and will have a unique career path. We consider the strengths and weaknesses of each horse along with their emotional and spiritual development. Under the training direction of Scott Hassler, our training program is based upon classical dressage principles that develop the athletic ability of the horse while maintaining a sound horse in body, mind, and spirit. We accept horses in training for:

  • Long Term Career Development – we are dedicated to developing talented horses through the levels to optimize potential.
  • Short Term Development – we are talented “problem-solvers” and offer intensive training to overcome specific challenges.
  • Resident Clients – we offer a small number of training spots for resident clients to support their daily training and competitive goals.

From the heated indoor arena, outdoor arena, three lunging paddocks, half-mile dressage track with all weather footing, and ample turn out and open spaces—the Riveredge training facility ideally supports the horses in our care. Additional strengthening and conditioning is available through an AquaPacer. Learn more about the Riveredge facilities.

The horses in our care benefit richly from our deep commitment to their wellness. We feed a “whole foods” nutrition program along with individualized supplementation. We offer a myriad of therapeutic and restorative therapies. Our horses receive personalized attention before or after work each day to address any special needs (electro-magnetic blanketing, cold laser therapy, ice therapy). Regular massage, acupuncture, and chiropractic services are also available.
