Columbia Horse Center is so much more then just a lesson program. There are many opportunities for our students to get more involved and test their skills. Whether you are looking to improve your equitation in the Hunter ring or try your hand in the Jumper ring, you can compete against other riders at your level. Our Pre-Event team is a great introduction to Eventing and members move up the next level when ready. Many of our students enjoy the Dressage team and all the feedback from the judges. There are so many options once our students are ready to venture into the different disciplines.
Most people think that Dressage is only for the elite. The truth is just the opposite. At Columbia Horse Center, we encourage our students of all levels a chance to show off their skills in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Without the tension and craziness that follows other disciplines, Dressage allows our riders an opportunity to be on a team and get great feedback from highly respected professionals in the field.
Head Coach: Kate Miska
Junior Dressage Team Coach: Karen Rae Bone
EVENT & PRE-EVENT TEAMS

Boarders and higher level riders (with permission) are welcome to test their skills in an adrenaline, blood pumping sport that pushes us to our limits. Have the need for an adventure, then is the place for you.
