With a commitment to personalizing the dressage experience for each horse and rider, Vermont-based Ruth Hogan-Poulsen is making her mark on the US dressage scene.
In the early 90s, Ruth earned many of her earliest opportunities in the FEI ring by applying her individualized approach to “difficult” horses. Understanding the need to address the different learning processes of “problem” horses, Ruth also began to apply more dynamic training for riders as well.
“Each rider learns differently. To teach a new skill, I have to be ready to explain the unfamiliar movement in a way that this person can understand and apply my instructions.”
Ruth’s customized training plans focus on maintaining normalcy, integrity and individuality for horses and riders even during peak competition season. The results of her training philosophy are success in the show arena and the loyalty of her long-time clients.
