 Happy Clients

"I engaged NC Dressage initially to assist me as a Dressage coach, and found Natalie's natural insight and ability to teach extremely helpful to my dressage journey.  Natalie then took on the training of my young Warmblood and the results have been outstanding.  My horse is more confident, more enjoyable to ride, and has reached a new level in his training.  I feel confident in recommending Natalie to anyone searching for an ethical Dressage trainer with excellent timing and feel"  -  Chrissie H.
