Pan American gold medalist and Olympic team reserve Heather Blitz has announced today that she will be relocating to Medfield, Massachusetts in May 2013. Blitz will be the resident trainer at Donna Cameron's Cutler Farm Dressage in Medfield less than an hour from downtown Boston. "This opportunity came along at the right time for me as I needed to move north to avoid the hot summers in Wellington. We managed last year because I was traveling so much for the Olympic Games training but it's very challenging for the horses to work in Florida during the hot months," said Blitz. "I recently held a clinic at Cutler Farm and had a wonderful reception so I'm really looking forward to spending more time there. I already have a group of students that have booked in for training and look forward to introducing my program to many more at this super quality facility."
Together with her Pan American partner, the 10-year-old Danish Warmblood gelding Paragon, Blitz will also take Oak Hill Ranch's 5 year old Hotline stallion, Ripline, as well as some young horses that are being produced for sale.
Donna Cameron commented, "All of us at Cutler Farm are thrilled to welcome Heather Blitz to our community. Her demonstrated expertise and mastery of the art and sport of dressage are truly inspirational. We greatly look forward to having Heather further the mission of Cutler Farm in providing the very finest educational opportunities to dressage riders in the region and beyond."
Cutler Farm has a 70' x 200' insulated indoor arena with GGT footing and a regulation outdoor dressage arena with PermaFlex footing. The farm also has adjacent access to some of the area's most beautiful hacking trails.
