Thomas Poulin, USEF S. Judge
From our conversations, I know that I will be able to continue working with her
in the future, and that her
guidance will compliment the additional work that Tom
has given me from previous instruction.

"I just wanted to share with you that I had such a wonderful ride on my horse yesterday afternoon, applying the muscle memory I obtained on Amerika in the morning!
It was so cool to ride my own horse "as if" I were on Amerika, and alas, he
went more like her!
I wish I could have a refresher ride on Amerika once a week!
gave me an invaluable tip about my hands that worked wonders.
Thank you both for conducting this clinic.
is an absolutely gorgeous facility and I hope to come back to work with you in the Reiki as well as to ride with Cathy and Tom
- Anne Lindquist
Farm is a wonderful 'therapy' for horse and human.
The stress of life will melt away here so you can concentrate on the riding and learn more in your time here.

He is one of the best instructors in our Learner Judge Program.

is modest, and his
moral and ethical standards are beyond reproach.

When I think of who I would like to clinic with or have judge me or my students I think of Tom Poulin
has been coming to the Islands for many years and has a faithful following.
My barn, Misty Meadow Training Stable, has him come to Hawaii in the beginning of the year and his
clinics are filled well in advance of his
Aloha State Dressage Society
finish out our season in September and Tom has a three day clinic after the show.
We appreciate Tom's knowledge and patient approach to all of us who ride with him.
Tom is always a fair judge and a very helpful clinician.
always takes the students where they and their horse are and is very positive with his
comments. - Anna Awana
To Ms. Gillian Vallis, regarding Mr. Thomas Poulin:
asked that I write this letter, I was truly complemented.
We first met, as a rider and judge; his
comments were fair, correct and helpfully encouraging.
Since then, I've come to know Tom
as a clinician and friend and he
has been a welcome guest in our home on several occasions.
I would happily recommend Tom Poulin
for any demanding position that required a high level of ethics, people skills and leadership.
has the vision and talent to use his
accumulated knowledge and expand its application.
It is with great pleasure that I can recommend Tom Poulin
to your stable.
I have known Tom
professionally and personally for many years now.
In addition to judging dressage shows many times together, he
has been coming to my farm in Texas to do regular riding clinics.
usually comes every other month to instruct, and I have generally 3 horses that I ride with him . He
has been an asset to my students and myself, always composing unique exercises to help with the problem solving in the never ending training process!
We are grateful for his
advice, experience and professionalism.
I know he
will be an asset to your program.
