Lexington Welcomes Dutch Sport Horse Trainer


Lexington, Kentucky—August 6th--Dutch sport horse trainer, Arnold Warmels has relocated his Nashville, Tennessee training site to the Horse Capital of the World, Lexington, KY. Warmels came to capture the excitement built from the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games. Warmels and his wife Lisa are both seasoned equestrians and were active in the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in a variety of aspects.

Warmels’ training center, Fryslân Valley Sport Horses, is located at Blue Stone Farm in Lexington.  Warmels is a Dutch trainer of young sport horses for both dressage and driving and also specializes in Breed Inspection preparation and European Lunging.  He has given clinics worldwide and offers his services for the European horse breeds, for which he also offers translation and import services. Demonstrations, clinics, Keuring preparation, In-Hand services, and lessons are just some of the many dedicated services Warmels offers.


“Arnold is one of the best clinicians I have ever met. His very loving, jovial and authentic nature filled with knowledge made the attendees fulfilled at the end of the day. Each one was commenting about how much they learned and shared how they will implement all of this knowledge in the field. Most of all everyone is ready for an encore session,” Michele Bronson, Phoenix, AZ.

“No matter the discipline preferred for the young horse, we assist owners by giving their horse a strong foundation and education that will last a lifetime and assess his potential for the future” says Warmels.

Having spent the last six years in Nashville and the years before that in the Netherlands, Warmels is excited to become acquainted to the Lexington horse community. Warmels lives by the work motto, “Any discipline, any breed. . . any horse.”

Arnold looks forward to any challenge that could be brought to him and I trust his judgment implicitly when it comes to the care and training of my horses,” states client Shirley Brooks Whirley, Prattville, AL who has multiple horses in training with Warmels.


“I have done veterinary work for Arnold for the past seven years.  During this time, I have found him to be a very skilled horseman.  Arnold always takes care of the horses in his care with the greatest of pride.  Arnold is a person you can trust totally 24 hours a day, 7 days a week,” states Dr. John Bennett, DVM at Equine Services, LLC, Shelbyville, TN.

Warmels is now developing a Young Horse Development Program tailored to the USA, which combines European training techniques with American horsemanship to assess the young horses in training for the wide variety of (competition) disciplines in the United States of America.
