Katrina “Katie” Hiller is an FEI dressage trainer based at Wild Rose Farm in Walworth, WI. She started riding at the age of 6, and competing at age 8. Katie has earned her USDF Bronze, Silver, and Gold medals, all aboard a self-trained horse. Katie’s experience ranges from backing and starting young horses to competing in the highest level of dressage, the Grand Prix. She strives to achieve harmony, suppleness and lightness in every horse she trains.
She believes in building a trusting partnership with all horses and enhancing their individual spirit through an encouraging and gymnastic training program. It’s her mission to “carry the torch” of classical dressage training, and to prove that success both at home and in the show ring can be achieved by a training program based on classical principles and compassionate riding.
"I believe in an individualistic approach to each horse I train. It is of utmost importance that my horses are happy and comfortable in their work, both physically and mentally. My training program focuses on classical principles, teaching the horse to work from the hind legs forward in balance and harmony. I incorporate cross training methods into my program as well, such as cavaletti work, long-lining, hacking,
and field work."
