Meet Ron

Ron has been riding for over 30 years and has been involved with horses for as long as he can remember. He began his competitive life as an Eventer, but soon after decided to specialize in Dressage.

Ron spent time living and training in Germany in the nineties with Dressage rider Herbert Naeher and Jumper rider Thomas Michel, where he furthered his knowledge of Dressage and gained experience training a variety of horses.

After moving back to Canada in 1998, Ron began coaching students from Training level to FEI. Shortly thereafter, he opened his own training and coaching business, Blueprint Farm.

Since 2001, Ron has been very active in starting young horses and preparing horses of all ages for the famous RCMP Auction that happens biannually, over the years having prepared over 100 horses. In addition, he has taught in the equine program at the former University of Guelph, Kemptville Campus, and helped several students work towards their Equine Canada Coaching Certification.

Ron has also been a long-time participant in the prestigious Young Dressage Horse Trainers Symposium hosted by Hassler Dressage in the USA, where he had the benefit of working with clinicians such as Steffen Peters, Michael Klimke, Ingo Pape, Ulf Mueller, Anne Gribbons and Scott Hassler.

Ron is an Equine Canada certified Judge and an Equine Canada High Performance Coach Candidate.
