 Julie Haugen has over 30 years of experience training multiple breeds in various disciplines and instructing all levels of riders. The principles of dressage are at the core of her passion which she uses to help both horse and rider to become the best team they can be. She has won or facilitated the win of over 45 National and World titles in the Morgan Breed and Western Dressage arenas. Her biggest pride is in seeing her clients succeed in the arena, whether it be at home or the show pen.
