We are proud to have Andrea Seaman working out of Sonesta Farms as trainer and coach in dressage at all levels for both horse and rider.

Andrea is a USDF Silver medalist and has her British Horse Society, Level II certification.

She grew up in northern England and is a graduate of the highly acclaimed British Horse Society, she is qualified in riding , teaching and all aspects of horse care and management. After leaving the U.K, Andrea worked for the royal family of the U.A.E in Dubai at the Dubai Equestrian Center for several years as teaching staff . She also worked at The Bukit Timah Turf Club in Singapore for the government during the first year of operations of the first ever public riding school in that country.
Andrea spent some time in Houston as an apprentice for Lyndon Rife, a well known local Dressage trainer before going to Knoxville, Tennessee for five years, where she managed and was the Dressage trainer at Penrose Farm, during this time Andrea was fortunate to be able to train on a monthly basis with international grand prix rider Jim Koford. During this time Andrea was able to show in Florida and clinic with other international riders such as Marco Bernal and Kathy Priest whilst showing thru I1.

"Whilst?" Sonesta, you've gone British! :)

Soon you'll be "on your mobile" or saying "bollux." ;)

What do you bet she calls a halter a "head collar" and a horse trailer a "lorry" and a stall a "box" and braids "plaits." They really should bloody well learn to speak English one of these days!

I thought they also called a stall the horse's "stable." Then there's the boot of a car instead of saying trunk.

Hey, maybe she'll just start trying to drive on the left side of the road. :eek: Look out Houstanites!

All trainers love them once they get to work with them. They are so biddable, trainable and just plain fun! and you can teach them stuff easily.

My trainer didn't know them at all before and now loves them!

She'll be a die hard fan before long.
