Karen McGoldrick rides, teaches, and trains dressage at her own Prospect Hill Farm in Alpharetta, Georgia.
She is a United States Dressage Federation certified instructor/ trainer; earned her USDF Bronze, Silver, and Gold medal rider awards, all on horses she trained; and she graduated “With Distinction” from the USDF “L” program.
Karen got her first “working student” job by answering an ad in her community newspaper at the age of 12. Before, during, and after college, she worked on and off for a variety of trainers until she and her husband bought their first farm in 1992.
Karen is an award-winning contributor to USDF Connection magazine, and she is a regular columnist for the Georgia Dressage and Combined Training Association newsletter.
Karen feels that the best part of being a dressage instructor is sharing the insights, joys, and sorrows that riding, training, and loving horses have brought to her life. Writing a novel is one more way to do this.
The Dressage Chronicles comes straight from her heart.
