Passionate about the sport of dressage.  I enjoy teaching all ages of riders but find young riders to be interesting and energetic.  Everyday working with horses and people who want to learn to be accomplished riders is a blessing to me.





Christy Rettger* of Rettger Dressage

My name is Christy, and I'm a dressage trainer with over 20 years of experience riding, training and caring for horses. One of the most important things I've learned is that while lessons are an important part, alone they are not enough. Riders who are serious about learning have to take another step and become well-educated horsemen by studying the work of others, both current and past.

My philosophy is "if the horse says no, ask why." It's simple, but most people assume the horse is misbehaving or misunderstanding (in which they shout louder rather than rephrasing the question). This philosophy has guided my journey in dressage, and led me to study in depth the many pieces necessary to help horse be successful, happy and healthy. I believe dressage should be for any horse and any rider, so I want to inspire you to train your horse to levels you never thought possible, and I want to share with you the secrets of biomechanics and classical dressage to make it happen.
Available for lessons, clinics or video critiques!
