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. - Kristi Fly
"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! Plus, Tom gave me an invaluable tip about my hands that worked wonders. Thank you both for conducting this clinic.
"Pine Knoll 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
"Pine Knoll 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. Tom Poulin is a master!!
I have known Tom Poulin for over seven years through his activities in the field of dressage as a judge, clinician and instructor. He has judged shows for the Houston Dressage Society almost every year since 2002.
By way of introduction, I have been on the Board of Directors for the Houston Dressage Society for over ten years, holding numerous positions, including that of President. Tom has always been a good friend to Houston Dressage Society and its membership.
Tom is extremely competent and maintains an excellent rapport with people. He is an outstanding team player with a strong work ethic. He has a keen mind and is very perceptive. He has good focus with an ability to always consider the "big picture". Tom is a fair judge, a constructive clinician and a clear instructor.
In summary, I highly recommend him. He will be a valuable asset to your organization.
It is a pleasure to write this note of recommendation for Tom Poulin. I have had the great privilege of knowing Tom for nearly 36 years, since he established The American Dressage Institute in Maine, when Dressage was little known in America. He has seen and contributed towards the growth of Dressage in the USA, ever since. He has trained horses to the highest levels, as well as ridden them at those levels.
In his early days, he was greatly influenced by the training principles of classical Dressage. He was a disciple of Mr. Rokitansky, the great Oberiter and Director of the Spanish Riding School in Vienna.
Tom is a respected Dressage judge and a teacher. He is one of the best instructors in our Learner Judge Program. Tom is a great organiser, and has a keen eye in solving problems. He is modest, and his moral and ethical standards are beyond reproach.
I am confident that if he is a part of you Foundation, he will do you honour.
When I think of who I would like to clinic with or have judge me or my students I think of Tom Poulin.
Tom 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 arrival.
Aloha State Dressage Society has Tom 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. He 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:
When Tom 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. He 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. Tom 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.

Thomas Poulin would head the training center. Thomas Poulin, vice-president and instructor of the American Dressage Institute and assistant coach to the Swedish and Mexican Olympic teams, will integrate the information gleaned from the other programs into classical dressage. Mr. Poulin would be responsible for training the dressage horses and for choosing the trainers who would be brought in to work with the other disciplines.
We feel like we cant shoot ..., 16 Feb 2015 [cached]
We feel like we cant shoot any worse than we did that first time, and we defended very well, North coach Tom Poulin said.
Poulin thinks a Geneva win tonight likely would nail down the top seed for the Vikings, whereas a North victory could give East (19-3, 10-2 UEC River) the nod. The Saints and Vikings split their two conference meetings.
Given how well his team has played lately and the North Stars nonconference schedule strength, Poulin said a North win tonight should at least inject North into the discussion for the top seed.
Ill say it, I think we play the toughest schedule in our area, period, if you just line up the opponents, Poulin said.

Tom Poulin - Resident Trainer
Tom Poulin has been an influential member of the American dressage community longer than many riders today have been alive. In his lengthy career, he has been recognized as a top rider, trainer, USEF "S" judge, instructor, and clinician, and is one of the driving forces behind the development of dressage as a sport in the United States. As his clients and students can affirm, when seeking a professional that can realize the potential of both horse and rider, there is no substitute for experience.
Cathy is Assistant Trainer to Tom Poulin, has ridden consistently with him for over 30 years, and considers him her mentor.
