About Lynda Weese
Lynda has been blessed to have 35 years of being taught by some of the finest trainers. They all made the well being of the horse priority through insisting on balanced non agressive riding and stretching of the horse no matter the level. Lynda feels this is the foundations for Dressage, which by definition is the "Harmony between horse and rider".
Lynda spent 16 years as an apprentice under Jim and Sharon Rowe of Rowe Dressage Stables in Okemos, Michigan.
Then, For over ten years Lynda trained with former Olympian Ed Rothkranz, whom she also frequently hosted for clinics.
Then She had the honor to clinic regularly with renowned trainer Walter Zettl for 10 years.and continued to work with him as frequently as possible, mostly through video lessons when he no longer travels to the states until his passing in 2017.
In 2018 Lynda was a graduate of the intense USDF L Education Program which qualifies her to judge schooling shows. Through this study she has greater insight into the evaluative techniques of judging dressage and has made her a better teacher and trainer in preparation and expectations for show riding and is able to see things clearer from the judges point of view. Continued education is demanded to keep this certification which will keep Lynda current at all times as a learner Judge.

Lynda's Training Philosophy
Lynda's approach is all about patience and kindness. Horses are motivated by reward and comfort, and the forceful riding styles so often seen today often result in bad experiences for both horse and rider.
There's no substitiute for a patient approach that combines Lynda's decades of experience training through FEI levels with the thoughtful consideration of each animals' unique personality and temperament.
