Working student position available with Michael and Sharon Poulin. Michael’s contributions to Dressage are many and continuing. Most people who reach the highest levels in dressage make their mark in one primary facet of the sport – competitor, trainer, instructor, judge. Michael Poulin is all four. He won a Bronze Medal at 1992 Barcelona Olympics with Graf George, and boasts multiple national, international championships & in 2013 was inducted into the USDF Hall of Fame for his outstanding achievements. Also a "I" rated judge, Michael sits on numerous USDF & USEF committees & heads the Poulin School of Dressage at the Dressage Center, Inc. in DeLeon Springs, Florida with his wife Sharon where they work with a prominent student roster. Michael dressage students and friends say that what they most admire about Michael is his honesty, and that he has the uncanny ability to go directly to the heart of the matter with a horse. In Michael’s words, “The philosophy of classical riding is that the horse understands the rider’s aids with relaxation, not fear, and relates the aids to the physical movement that he’s doing. Classical riding develops the horse physically with mental understanding." With over 30 years experience, Sharon Poulin, leads a busy life of daily training, teaching and managing their 30-40 stall horse stable. She has trained many horses to Grand Prix and successfully competed up thru the levels to Grand Prix with three different stallions, Pyrmont, Boleem and Brilliant. She holds an “S” (Senior) judges license with the USEF, she judges dressage competitions thru Grand Prix level throughout the U.S. With strong emphasis on the correct seat and position, she is enthusiastic in her teaching and encourages her riders to improve their riding skills on the lunge line. At Poulin Dressage we run a large Olympic caliber training facility. We have a busy winter show season and a lighter summer season, website is PoulinDressage.com
