December 15, 2009
Loxahatchee, Florida, USA
International dressage rider and renowned clinician, Heather Blitz, has relocated from Denmark to Florida to base her training operation for the winter. Heather already has some high quality dressage horses and clients boarding at the new facility in Loxahatchee and is also training a number of non-residential clients.
As a clinician, Heather is in great demand. Her popular 'Mind Your Riding' Tour schedule will shortly be posted shortly on her website for next year to include venues across North America and Canada.
"I am excited to be back in the States after being based the past three years in Denmark and I'm really looking forward to spending time with many loyal students and clients as well as extending my 'Mind Your Riding' Tour. I've had requests from all over the country for clinics to be included on the Tour so I'm currently finalizing the schedule for 2010," said Heather.
Heather is available for a la carte, trailer-in lessons, as well as teaching throughout Wellington and surrounding areas. Having operated her business in Denmark for the past few years, Heather has extensive contacts and can help with finding quality, fairly priced horses for sale at all levels.
Heather will continue to utilize social media tools, such as her Facebook Fan Page and Twitter, to reach her students. She will also be producing a new library of video tips for her website. Heather can be heard on the Dressage Radio Show from time to time where she shares some of her popular training tips.
Heather is a guest speaker at the Mid South Eventing & Dressage Association Annual Meeting in Lexington, Kentucky on February 6, 2010.
About Heather Blitz
Heather Blitz, 40, has spent the past three years in Esbjerg, Denmark where she was training and teaching Grand Prix dressage horses. Heather started riding at the age of five on her parent's farm in Kansas where she rode western events. She moved to college at Colorado State University where she graduated with a B.S. in Equine Science and also began focusing on dressage. After college in 1993 she relocated to Louisiana where she worked as a trainer and instructor and since 1994 has been competing at Grand Prix level. Competing on the show circuit each winter in South Florida, Heather refined her skills and learned a system of training involving biomechanics. She has since been working with her mentor and coach, Mary Wanless. Heather now regularly gives clinics and symposiums around the world.
One of her many dressage horses that influenced her career was her first Grand Prix horse, Rambo, with whom she started competing when he was 12 until she retired him at age 18. Heather and Rambo competed in Florida and also at Dressage at Devon where they finished in third place, which earned them an invitation to the U.S. Equestrian Federation team training sessions that proved to be a turning point in Heather's career.
Another significant partnership was with the chestnut mare, Arabella, (Rambo x April) which began when the mare was first broken in and took them all the way through Grand Prix, including being selected as reserve to the U.S. dressage team for the 2006 World Equestrian Games in Aachen, Germany. The partnership won regional championships at age four and five. At six years old, they won the FEI 6-year-old Young Horse Championship and almost qualified for the World Championships in Verden, Germany. At eight years old Arabella competed in the USEF Intermediaire Championships in San Juan Capistrano, California, where they finished in fifth place.
