Stonebridge Sport Horses is an elite dressage training company that offers a European-inspired equestrian concept built by the highest quality, continuity and entirety. Stonebridge Sport Horses spends their summer season at a beautiful farm in Bedford, NY, and the winter season in Wellington, FL.
Stonebridge Sport Horses offers through their head trainer Karin Persson ambitious students full board and training in tailor-made programs. For example they are proud trainers of a couple of the highest ranked juniors in the US. Stonebridge is one of few barns in the area that can offer a trainer with lots of experience training juniors and young riders to highest European standards (European and Nordic-Baltic Championships). Stonebridge Sport Horses continuously import high quality dressage horses and have a few top FEI prospects for sale at their barn. They also have the possibility to receive a very limited number of quality horses in training. They offer a concept with full service and can prepare your horse for show, sales or just take your horse to the next step in training.
