Dana began her show career in the hunter ring, but was captured by Dressage after discovering how correct riding on the flat will benefit every horse. For the past 30 years she has successfully trained and shown in open dressage classes from training level thought Prix St Georges. "I have been fortunate to have obtained my Dressage education from top trainers and clinicians. I also believe that continuing education in Dressage is important. Reading, watching, and participating help keep trainers up to date on new issues, yet reaffirm the basics of correct training methods." Dana has participated in the L judges program as well as the USDF Instructor Certification program. "I think, because I began in the hunter ring, I enjoy both flatwork for Hunters as well as Dressage. There is no greater joy for me than to see both horse and rider improve and move up the levels together as they learn."
