Our Trainers & Training Resources
Get access to world-class dressage trainers and horses at Castle Farm.
Britta Johnston, a Grand Prix Trainer & International Clinician, supervises dressage training of horses and riders at Castle Farm. She works closely with our trainers to keep our education on the right track according to traditional German principles. The progress that we have made since Britta has been training us is simply astonishing. She is generous in her knowledge and very motivational. Her focus is on proper biomechanics of the rider to influence the horse correctly and sequential gymnastic exercises to strengthen the horse’s skeleton and progress the horse’s training. She teaches Intro level through Grand Prix and enjoys working with riders and horses at all levels! Britta has committed to monthly clinics at our facility for our clients and outside horses and riders if space allows.
We host regular dressage clinics with international quality instructors and dressage shows at our Maryland equestrian estate.
Our boarders are encouraged to suggest other top trainers for clinics and upon approval, are welcome to bring their own trainers to Castle Farm for regular teaching. Our goal is education and we enjoy learning from a variety of qualified instructors!
