TRAINING AND Services
At Sunset Hills Dressage, we custom design our training programs and services to meet the unique needs of each horse and rider. We are passionate about helping you meet your dressage goals.
Kim believes in taking the long view in training, customizing her approach to what each horse uniquely needs. From young horse to FEI, she believes in taking the time to build a strong foundation of the basics, always listening to the horse and keeping the training positive. This allows the horse to progress more quickly, because having mastered the basics, the movements are not as difficult.
Our training program includes:
Clinics with internationally recognized clinician Bert Rutten
Coaching at Shows
Development of Sponsored Horses
Sunset Hills Dressage is proud to offer top notch care for our equine partners. From the ground up attention to detail and comfort are a priority to all the facility staff.
Our grooming services and barn staff are dedicated to providing world class horsemanship.
Head Groom, Barn Manager
Cheron has been our head groom and barn manager for more than 6 years.
A rider herself, she is a committed equestrian, and does a terrific job with daily care and treatments. Cheron also has a special talent for caring for and handling some of our babies, and for dealing with temperamental, young warmbloods as well as hot, difficult horses. In addition she is a pleasure supporting our clients daily at home and shows.

Ron purchased Sunset Hills Farms in 2016 after being charmed by the beauty of the estate. Not being a rider himself, he quickly fell in love with horses and the dedication required to develop them for sport.
