"I want to always be growing and continuing in my education. In order to give more to my students I must improve myself. I achieve this best by furthering my education, riding good quality horses, and competing in the country`s top competitions." -Sue Kolstad `99 I have been in the business of training horses and teaching riders for over 20 years. I was a school teacher before I became an equestrian professional, so I have a strong emphasis on education. I teach clinics around the country, coach students at shows, and train horses at home.
During the last 20 years of my life I have explored many directions in the equestrian world. I have owned and built my own facility for 10 years, then sold my farm to relocate. I have trained and shown many horses to FEI levels. I`ve trained with many good trainers, and have a strong background from Europe. I have pursued numerous directions in riding...Western, Endurance Riding, Hunters, Jumpers, Eventing, and Combined Driving all while I continued training in the art of classical Dressage.
During the last 2 years I have imported quality warmbloods from Europe with several of them in USDF Year End Point standing, as well as, 1999 Region II Champion at Training and First Level, Reserve Champion Int-I and Int-II, and Champion Int-I Freestyle.
I have made my connections in Europe valuable to the US by taking great pride in locating and matching quality horses with riders, and by bringing trainers from Europe to the US to do clinics. I am also available to go to Europe with you to help you locate the horse of your dreams.
