“I’ve been lucky enough to be a student of Kelly’s for over 6 years and with 5 leased horses. From each horse, I’ve learned to overcome a variety challenges, think through each movement, and continue to grow as a rider under Kelly’s guidance. I’m grateful to Kelly for her patience and humor through it all, especially as we haved worked to improve my form, which I can safely say has never been better.”

 I have worked with (and for) Kelly Casey Mykrantz for almost 4 years.  I have known her for even longer.  I cannot say enough nice things about her as a person or her training business and staff.  She is professional and caring when it comes to horses and clients.  She always gives more than 100%.  My horse and I would not have come as far as we have without her abilities and guidance. Thank you Kelly!!

I have had the incredible opportunity to train with Kelly for the past 6 years. She has helped me create and reach many of my goals as a rider including my USDF Silver Medal and most recently the first scores towards my USDF Gold Medal. With Kelly’s coaching on a variety of horses from green 4yos to my current FEI horse,  I have won USDF national awards, USDF Regional Championships as well as California Dressage Society year end awards and championships. She works with each student to develop and unique and personalized approach and training plan that will best fit the riders needs and goals as well as keep the welfare of the horse in the forefront. Kelly is an exceptional trainer who is both motivating and inspiring. She is also a true horseman, who is always fair and compassionate to the horses. Kelly has helped me immensely with all my horses, and I owe much of my riding success to the many hours she has dedicated to teaching me about dressage.

“I've been training with Kelly for over 3 years. She has taught me so much about bend, collection, use of my seat and more! Not only is Kelly incredible, but her staff is second to none. Kate is a super teacher and rider and we'd be lost without Lauren.  Greenville Equestrian Center is truly an oasis for horse and rider.”

 

 

 “I am an out of town transplant that borrowed Kelly for a few shows, and I got hooked! I can't begin to tell you how much I have enjoyed the past couple years hanging out with the KCD crew. They have welcomed and shared many good times with me. Kelly is so professional, talented, and kind, yet she makes me work hard, which I appreciate. She has many little tricks up her sleeve to help me understand and fix things that have plagued me in the past. And watching her train and ride is a huge inspiration for me. I look forward to many more good times with KC Dressage!”

  “I can’t believe how much I’ve learned from Kelly over the past 2 years. She has taught me to become a more effective and competitive rider. In her calm, steady way Kelly pushes me just enough to up my game, without stress or drama.  Even though I ‘trailer-in’ for lessons, I feel at home and welcomed by the entire KC Dressage Team. This past 2016 show season has been a blast and totally exceeded my expectations, earning scores in the 70s and winning some very cool awards!

 “Kate was very welcoming to us when we started at KC Dressage.  She has encouraged my daughter's growth through thoughtful and intentional lessons. She listened carefully to her goals and helped her develop a plan. Kate works hard to create a positive relationship with the horse and rider so that they can best work toward their goals. Most importantly has the ability to balance serious work with a sense of humor.”

In 2014 I made a decision to improve my riding skills and try to do some showing. For years I had been riding at my own facility, occasionally trailering out to trainers for lessons, but I felt I was not making progress on my goals. One of my goals was to become a more effective rider and I felt that Kelly's training program would be great for my personal needs. The accomplishments I've reached as part of the KC Dressage team have gone beyond my wildest dreams. Kelly assisted in the purchase of my pony Far Above Par and my brand new horse, En Garde in December of 2016. All of Kelly’s other clients were welcoming and supportive. We always have so much fun when we travel to shows as a group. The KC Dressage program has taken me from Training to 3rd Level in 8 months. I earned my bronze medal plus I was CDS high point pony score award for 2016!  I commute almost 60 miles each way, four days per week to train with Kelly because she's a superb trainer and the facilities are great. I highly recommend KC Dressage to those riders who seek intelligent, meaningful instruction of the highest standards.
