Kimberly Mitchell Dressage

14do05 Read Oso Grande 1CEB0009.jpgKimberly Mitchell is an FEI dressage trainer operating out of Cedar Meadow Farm in Snohomish, WA.  She is a USDF Bronze and Silver Medalist and is currently schooling her non-traditional dressage horse, Oso Grande (Teddy Bear), at Grand Prix.  She trains regularly with Alyssa Pitts and has participated in clinics and symposiums with Anne Gribbons, Sabine Schut-Kery, Barbara Koot, Scott Hassler, Janet Foy and Charlotte Dujardin.

Kim has an interesting background in teaching, having graduated with her Master’s of Arts in Teaching from Willamette University in 2008.  She spent a short period of time working in public schools in Oregon before moving back home to Washington.  She realized that while she enjoyed teaching, working in the schools wasn’t necessarily where her passion lay – so she interned to become a PATH Intl. Certified Instructor and eventually an Advanced Instructor, and worked at a local therapeutic riding center.  This varied background gives her more insight into working with different riding styles and types of riders. As a result, she is extremely flexible and adaptive and very happy to work with challenges – both with the rider and the horse.

As a trainer and instructor, Kim takes each horse and rider as an individual. She has experience with a wide variety of breeds and training issues and strives to create a better partnership between horse and rider.  Kim believes that all horses can benefit from dressage and welcomes all levels!
