Lauren's horse career started at a young age. She was 12 when she first started riding dressage and 14 when she started teaching. She became assistant trainer to Olympian Guenter Seidel in her early 20's and had the privelidge of riding under Guenter's tutelage for many years. She has studied with many other dressage greats like Christine Traurig, Herwig Radnetter, Dietrich Von Hopfgarten and Heidi Gaian.
Lauren has many achievements in the show ring from training level to Grand Prix and has earned her Bronze, Silver and Gold Medals. She is passionate about bringing horses and riders up the levels and believes in using a gentle and compassionate approach. Lightness, harmony, and a classical position are the foundation for her training method and the reason for her success in bringing riders and horses through the levels. Horses trained by Lauren have a high degree of ride-ability and a relaxed and positive mind frame. Lauren's students appreciate her demanding yet patient approach and have enjoyed much success in the show ring as well as developing rewarding relationships with their horses.
Lauren offers training for the dressage horse and rider at Ascuncion Valley Farms in Templeton California. She also has a selection of quality warmblood and Iberian horses for sale.
