- What Makes Us Unique -

Uphill Dressage Center is a commercial boarding stable for dressage horses that feels like a private club. With only 18 stalls, boarders and their horses receive the personal attention they deserve. Our facility features large, regulation-sized indoor and outdoor arenas, grass and all-weather paddocks, and a round pen. We enjoy easy access to miles of beautiful trails.

Some of our other amenities include indoor arena heaters, state-of-the-art dust-free footing, mirrors and an integrated sound system. Riders and their guests enjoy our clean, climate controlled tack room and lounge. Our roomy, well-ventilated stalls are equipped with heated Jugg™ Automatic Waterers and StableComfort™ mattresses. Flies are controlled with Fly Predators™ in the paddocks and an automatic misting system in every stall. For horses with special needs, we offer a Haygain™ hay steamer and a Respond™ laser.

We are open seven days a week, 365 days a year, because we know how precious those riding hours are. We have a full bathroom complete with shower for those who want to ride before work or another event. And we offer a flexible menu of boarding options which can be customized to suit individual needs. Best of all, we are exclusively a dressage facility. Whether they compete or not, everyone who rides here loves dressage!

Trainers

Uphill Dressage Center is proud to announce a professional trainer affiliation with Bronze, Silver and Gold Medalist Debra Wiedmaier. Debra is now available by appointment for lessons, training and clinics year-round at our modern state-of-the-art facility. Debra’s qualifications are almost too numerous to list, but for starters, she earned her Young Rider Bronze, Silver and Gold medals in Germany, she’s trained 15 horses from scratch to Grand Prix, she was long listed with two horses for the Olympic Games, she’s competed for the USET at home and in Europe, and she’s studied with some of the great masters of our time both in the USA and abroad. Although Debra has competed at the top of our sport, she loves training Adult Amateurs and has an extensive teaching background. Debra also enjoys helping jumper riders improve their flatwork. Full service seasonal and year-round boarding is available at our established training facility, and trailer-ins are welcome. "My focus is on the 'partnership' of horse and riders of all levels based on a systematic approach. Having produced winning combinations for both amateurs and professionals is proof positive that my training system works." - Debra Wiedmaier To read more about Debra’s extensive qualifications, we invite you to view her web page at dwdressage.com/resume.
