Sprieser Sporthorse is dedicated to the training of horse and rider in classical dressage, from green to Grand Prix, to personal and competitive ends. We offer the following services towards this goal:

  • Full Training Board
  • Short-Term Training Packages
  • Trailer-in lessons
  • Participation in outside horse shows
  • Virtual lessons
  • Additional services

We do not have school horses available for lessons.

We believe that dressage training is an invaluable component of every horse’s and rider’s development and conditioning. Whether their core riding focus is on eventing, jumping, fox hunting or dressage, our clients find benefit in sound dressage training as a means to confirm their horse’s gaits, balance and connection with their rider. Lauren, along with her assistant trainers, customizes her clients’ training program to support their goals within their specific discipline, while consistently underpinning the regimen with solid dressage foundation work.

All instructors at Sprieser Sporthorse are SafeSport Certified.
