Based on our philosophy that any horse and rider can benefit from "dressage", we offer a number of ways for serious riders to achieve their goals with our help. Many of our students have gotten their bronze and silver medals, have competed and done very well at regional finals, have trained their own horses to the FEI level, and have become very accomplished professional and amateur dressage riders. However, EMRS has also helped many hunter/jumpers become better gymnasticized and muscled, equitation competitors improve their flat work and adjustablity over fences, western pleasure horses become more forward and fit, eventers polish their dressage skills and jump more precisely, and anyone with a serious interest in riding to develop a more secure functional seat and have a fitter, happier, less injury prone horse.
We offer full service training board, with up to four lessons or training rides a week, at Constance Hill Farm. Catie and Ellen can tailor a program for you regardless of discipline. As space allows, we also offer training board for shorter time periods with specific goals in mind.
We have plenty of availability for ship in lessons and will also travel to teach in the near vicinity. We have a variety of school horses, both FEI and lower level, for serious students to develop a balanced seat and a feel for the correct way of going of the horse. We have cavalatti and jumps available for training over fences.
Ellen and Catie both offer to travel and teach clinics anywhere in the US. Constance Hill Farm also hosts clinics with outside trainers. Check our schedule for upcoming events.
Catie has a "r" judging license and regularly judges recognized and schooling shows up and down the East coast. She also loves to do “ride a test” work shops. Ellen is very involved with Pony Club in this area and has been judging at their events for several years.
Catie and Ellen offer coaching at shows for all their students both those training on site at Constance Hill Farm or elsewhere. Catie will also show clients horses as part of the training process.
We offer two adult camps per year, with a week of intensive but fun training for you and your horse.
We both have done classical dressage demonstrations from the Vermont Mozart Festival to the Equine Affaire and more.
