Kathy Priest - Dressage Rider, Trainer and Instructor
With at least 15 horses in training at any time, Kathy stays consistently busy. On average, five of those horses are Kathy’s with approximately 10 client horses.
Six-year-old Renaldo is a Westphalen that is competing in the six-year-old Young Horse classes and is doing quite well. Kathy also has a new four-year-old Oldenburg, Reliance, who she purchased in 2007 in Europe. Reliance won his four-year-old class at his first show in Raleigh, NC in June of 2007. “I love working with young horses; bringing them along is so rewarding.”
In her barn, Kathy also has a few three- and four-year-olds by Bordeaux, the Hanoverian stallion who will always hold a special place in Kathy’s heart. These young horses and several other client horses are for sale, another aspect that Kathy enjoys—finding the right horses for the right people.
