Michelle Wolfe, Owner and Head Trainer
Michelle has ridden for some of the most successful trainers in the reining horse world, including:
As part of a private clinic, she rode with the man credited with inventing the sport of reining, the only rider ever to win both the NRHA and NCHA Futurities, AQHA Hall of Fame Trainer Dale Wilkinson.
Michelle is a former instructor of Meredith Manor International Equestrian Center, an equestrian college that prepares professional riders for careers in the horse industry. There, she taught western and dressage riding, training, and showing, based on the school's philosophies, strongly rooted in German dressage.
Michelle believes that the time-honored fundamentals of the dressage training scale develop a superior performance horse, regardless of discipline, while at the same time preserving soundness and longevity. She is dedicated to helping riders bridge the gap between these two disciplines.
