David and Anne Gribbons have been active in the Dressage training field since 1969, when they founded Knoll Farm on Long Island, New York. The facility housed as many as 85 Dressage horses on 17 acres, and involved every facet of the horse industry: A riding school with 25 school horses, a boarding facility with full training services available, a stallion station featuring about 15 stallions over the years, and sales horses; but first and foremost, the focus of Knoll Farm was training and showing dressage horses. They are founding members of the American Trakehner Association and were among the pioneers to import warmbloods to the United States.
Over 35 years of hard work and success in New York Knoll Farm was sold in 2001 and the Gribbons acquired 50 acres right outside Orlando, Florida, where Anne had wintered with the show horses for many years. David designed and supervised construction of his “dream farm,” finally having enough room to plan it just the way he wanted it, using all the years of experience of what works for dressage horses in Florida.
