Dressage Training and Instruction
...
Glenda is a Colorado native that grew up riding. She has earned USDF Bronze, Silver and Gold Medals. She has trained 3 horses to Grand Prix, with a fourth on h is way. Three of the four were from first backing on; the other was brought for training as a four year old. All of which she was the sole rider and trainer. Glenda has ridden horses to 15 top five USDF All Breed Awards including 10 first place wins. She has had horses in the top 20 Horse of the Year awards 6 times, and numerous RMDS awards and championships.
At the helm of these accomplishments is her very first dressage success, Brown About Town (aka "Rock" - pictured), with whom she earned her USDF Gold Medal and her first Rocky Mountain Dressage Horse-Of-The-Year Title among many others accolades. This link to an article titled Needles Puts Her Heart and Soul Into an Unlikely Grand Prix Horse published in the August 3, 2001 issue of The Chronicle of the Horse describes their journey.
Several of Glenda's students, both AA and JR/YR have RMDS and USDF Championships; including 9th Place Individual Rider and 8th Place Freestyle at the 2006 North American Juniors Championships in Virginia. Glenda has maintained her own business for 13 years, and teaches the horse and rider proper balance in order for both to become the best possible pair.

Through the years Glenda has ridden with some amazing trainers who have influenced her. She regularly rides with Kathleen Raine, Morten Thomsen of Silkeborg Denmark, and Catherine Haddad-Staller ; all of whom have taken many young horses to Grand Prix internationally. Glenda has also ridden with Ulla Salzgeber, Nicole Uphoff, Conrad Schumacher, Leslie Morse, Debbie McDonald, and recently Sue Blinks.

Glenda rode her first Grand Prix test in 1999, on a horse she was the sole rider and trainer of from the time he was two years old. This horse, Brown About Town, was the subject of an article titled Needles Puts Her Heart and Soul Into an Unlikely Grand Prix Horse published in the August 3, 2001 issue of The Chronicle of the Horse. This pair won nine 1st place USDF All Breed Awards, four top 20 placings USDF Horse of the Year Awards and numerous RMDS awards. The second horse she trained to Grand Prix was brought in as a training horse at the age of four and sold prior to having the opportunity to compete. The third horse now schooling Grand Prix is Regalo Cavallo, a horse Glenda and her husband purchased as a two year old. Serious Hit now 8 years old is competing at Prix St. Georges, a horse also purchased as a two year old, is working his way to Grand Prix.
