Dana HongistoTrainer and Instructor,
Dana Hongisto grew up with horses and began competing in 4-H at the age of 10.In her youth, she competed in all disciplines of riding, including Western pleasure, jumping, and driving.She fell in love with dressage while taking lessons from Pam Atkinson, a USDF bronze medalist and Grand Prix trainer.Soon after, Dana became Susan Snethkamp's part-time working student, exercising her Grand Prix horse Turbo.
In 1993, Dana purchased a thoroughbred off the track, Emma.She spent the next couple years retraining Emma, and her hard work paid off when she competed at the class A division and qualified for the regionals at 1st level dressage.
In the fall of 2001, Dana became a full-time working student with Lendon Gray at Gleneden Dressage in Bedford, New York.Lendon is a three-time Olympian who instilled in Dana the importance of using a forward riding system as her base for riding, teaching, and schooling.While at Gleneden, Dana's duties included graining and turn out for 50 horses, and she schooled up to six horses a day at various levels, from green to Grand Prix.
The following year, Dana trained in Wellington, Florida, with Oded Shimoni and Nancy Later at Kingsclere Dressage.
In 2006, Dana moved to the Madison area with her husband and young son, eager to continue her training and teaching career, and in October 2007, she and 3-year-old Prophet joined Snapdragon Farm and Stables.After the birth of her newest son, Eli, in November, Dana is looking forward to training and instructing full time for Snapdragon.She has experience training all breeds, from Arabian to Danish Warmblood; and all disciplines, from Western pleasure to Dressage.She already has four horses scheduled to begin training in January 2008 and is looking forward to increasing her clientele.
