    About Beth Baumert

    Beth was the initial editor for Dressage Today magazine beginning in 1994, and she later served as their technical editor for more than twenty years. In that capacity, she was in constant contact with the best dressage riders in the world as they wrote about the technical aspects of dressage. From this depth of knowledge, she wrote When Two Spines Align: Dressage Dynamics, which was released in 2014 by Trafalgar Square books and in 2020, the sequel, How Two Minds Meet, came out.

    Beth is on the Board of Directors of The Dressage Foundation (TDF) and has served as President and CEO since 2014. Based in Lincoln, Nebraska, TDF is on a mission to cultivate and provide financial support for the advancement of dressage. To that end, TDF awards grants, scholarships and prizes to promising riders, instructors, trainers, judges and breeders of dressage horses. Beth and her husband live in Columbia CT and Wellington FLth Baumert is a Certified Trainer and Instructor with the United States Dressage Federation (USDF) and is an "L" graduate with distinction of the USDF judging program. Beth and her husband Alan have two sons who live in New York City and Colorado. Their daughter, Grand Prix dressage rider Jennifer Baumert, represented the US in the 2019 Pan American Games and trains in Wellington Florida.

    ENYDCTA SS #3

    Fix-a-Test & Fix-a-Round

    @ SUNY Cobleskill

    INDOOR ARENA


    Fix a Test & How it Works

    You will ride your dressage test and after your final salute, you will have a mini session on how to improve your test scores for 25 minutes with the USDF L grad. 

    You have the option to re-ride the test again (before the 30 minutes are up) or just continue the session for more tips.  Only the first test counts towards placings.

    Fix a Round & How it Works

    A show jumping course will be constructed with the inclusion of individual fences, gymnastic line and designated flat work such as turn around the haunches and counter canter. The rider will school individual parts under some direction, and then perform a round. A qualitative score will be given and combined with the dressage test to determine score of the two phase. Help will then be given to shore up the difficulties and the rider will complete a second round.

    D4K Training4Teaching

    with Lendon Gray October 12th 

    For Eventing and Dressage Instructors Only


    In an effort to continue to support our successful young riders who move on to become professionals (and even our experienced pros), Dressage4Kids offers Training4Teaching. Through their riding education we expect that riding instructors have the knowledge of what to teach, but very few teachers/instructors have had any education about HOW to teach.


    Lendon Gray

    Olympics: Old Town native Lendon Gray ...

    About Lendon

    From her early years competing in Pony Club, western riding, hunters, and driving to her famous work with Seldom Seen and other ponies, Lendon developed a reputation for “taking unremarkable horses and making them good.” This belief in created talent and the power of dedication has inspired many of Lendon’s activities over the years. Determined to give others the opportunity to learn and improve, she has been extremely involved with organizations such as TDF, USET, USEF, USDF, US Pony Club, and Dressage4Kids (D4K), having served on nearly 50 committees for these organizations. She was a founding member USDF Instructor Certification program where she is currently an Examiner.

    As a competitor Lendon not only won innumerable national championships, but she also represented the US in international shows in Europe and Australia, competed in the 1978 World Championships and was on the 1980 and 1988 Olympic Dressage Teams.

    Though busy with organizational commitments, Lendon has been a successful professional in the equine world since she was 15. Over the years, she has taught clinics all over the world.  Lendon’s formidable reputation for her coaching abilities is reflected in her training of many International, national, and regional champion riders, both juniors and adults.

    Generous, outspoken, and pragmatic, Lendon has devoted her energies to the improvement of all riders and all horses. With the goal that all youth might learn how to become, not just better riders, but all-around horsemen, Lendon established Lendon’s Youth Dressage Festival in 1999. This was followed by the creation of the organization Dressage4Kids which has blossomed into a full-fledged non-profit, operating the YDF, the Weekend Equestrian Program, the Winter and Summer Intensive Training Programs, the TEAM program (Training, Education, and Mentoring), the Horse Donation Program, and Training4Teaching while transforming any proceeds from these functions into valuable scholarships for aspiring dressage riders.

    Lendon has been repeatedly recognized for her performance and service including the 1989 Governor’s Award from Maine Sports Hall of Fame, 2002 Exceptional Equine Educator Award, ARIA Master Instructor Award, USPC Legend (2004), 2006 Sweet Briar College Sports Hall of Fame, 2011 USDF Hall of Fame (Seldom Seen was also elected to the Hall of Fame),and in 2020 the Most Influential Trainer Award from Young/Youngish Equine Professionals Group.  Lendon has served as President for The Dressage Foundation, and continues as a valuable member of the Board.  She is also an ENYDCTA member. 


    ENYDCTA is proud to be able to bring quality instruction to the Northeast.
