Dressage Rider, Trainer, Clinician
Patricia Becker is the classic example of a dedicated young rider who patiently paid her dues and over time built up a filled to capacity clientele, an honest reputation, and the support of many top riders. Long time friends and students Carole and Frank Allgauer are the proud owners of the six-year-old luxurious facility, Fireside Farm in Wadsworth, Illinois. Carole continues to train with Patti on a regular basis and has now reached the Grand Prix level with her horse. They met at Temple Farm, where they both rode with international competitor and USDF vice president, George Williams.
Patti and Carole soon hit it off and became good friends. In 1995 Carole and her husband Frank invited Patti to live with them. Eight years ago Carole began taking dressage lessons with Patti and in 2003 Frank decided to build them a barn, in Camp Lake, Wisconsin, which has become a premier Dressage training facility for them and their friends.
