Katrin Silva grew up riding dressage in Germany before moving to the United States at age 19 to learn to ride Western. She’s been riding both disciplines for the last twenty years and is a regular BestHorsePractices columnist. She lives in New Mexico where she works with dressage and Western clients.

Over two days, horsewoman Katrin Silva and Skinner will ride green and more finished horses to show how solid horsemanship can relate equally to dressage work and cow work. Additionally, they will demonstrate how to move toward more accomplished places of softness and finesse with less experienced horses.
Silva and Skinner will show, for instance, how relaxation in a low frame is the foundation of more advanced work. Recreational and serious riders alike will love these presentations.
