The school was founded by Emily Abbate to fulfill a life long dream of creating a place of distinction and classical dressage study. Similar to that of the royal schools across Europe. Her drive to build and create such an extraordinary legacy came about from being captivated with the classical tradition and her experience with all her wonderful mentors that taught and followed in the classical way. These mentors showed Her that it is through true apprenticeship and focused , many subject education and the classical methodology, that you can create a true horseman and something amazing for and in a community.
The vision of a true classical School, that is uncompromising and unyielding in its ethics, yet able to be a modern place of art, theory and training for those individuals who seek, education and opportunity to advance themselves and the classical art. A place where the opinions of a few can not discriminate or create a incorrect and un ethical standard for all. A place where talent , drive, dedication, horsemanship, education and ethics are most important. Where the welfare of the horse is always more important than the goals, aspiration or attention that might be gained of the rider by pursuing poor training or unfair methods.
