Holly Wilmoth is a USDF bronze and silver medalist. She worked as Linda Oliver’s assistant , and has ridden consistently with or in clinics with top Dressage trainers and judges such as Linda Zang, Axel Steiner, Lisa Wilcox, Jeanne McDonald, Nicole Uphoff, Uve Steiner, Albrecht Hiedemann, Linda Konigsburg, and currently still works with Jim Kofford.
Holly believes that each trainer has something different and special to offer and thrives on molding her techniques and philosophies by merging all theories.
“Each horse has a different, individual personality and must be trained according. I am not the trainer that has one technique that must be applied to all horses. While basic dressage training must be mastered, not all horses will achieve this goal the same way. It is my job to create new and different exercises to encourage and ‘aid’ the horse in its training.”
