Karen started her love of horses while riding ponies bareback all over Door County. When she was 14, she moved to Green Bay and bought her first horse - a 3 year-old thoroughbred just off the track. Soon after, she joined the local United States Pony Club and became interested in dressage and eventing. Through Pony Club she achieved the National B rating.

She became the assistant trainer at the Wisconsin Equestrian Center for 10 years, working under the guidance of Head Trainer and USDF Gold Medalist Kim Iwen. Karen rode regularly with Kim Iwen, Brad Hall, and Eric Dierks. She also worked with clinicians such as Capt. Mark Phillips, Natalie Lamping, Hokan Thorn, and Col. Von Ziegner.

Karen has competed through fourth level dressage and has earned her USDF Bronze Medal. She has been teaching and training for over 20 years professionally. For 2016, she has taken the leadership role of DC (district commissioner) for the local Pony Club, Lake Hunt Pony Club. 

Karen offers beginner longe-line lessons on quiet lesson horses through jumping and advanced dressage lessons. Beginner lessons include learning how to groom, tack, and safely handle the horse. Dressage lessons focus on improving the rider’s seat and aides as well as learning the proper training scale of the dressage horse so the horse and rider can achieve harmony. She also offers beginner / intermediate jumping lessons. Karen truly enjoys working with riders of all ages and abilities, and is skilled at modifying her teaching style to suit the rider’s needs.

Karen offers training for horses from basic groundwork to advanced dressage. Specializing in young horses with an emphasis on desensitizing and dressage work. Whether you are looking to improve your horse’s skill for trail riding or want to compete at upper levels, Karen will work with you and your horse to achieve your goals.
