At Bradon Equestrian, we believe that solid flatwork is the foundation of a successful jumper. As a result, we incorporate weekly dressage training into our program. Shanna MacNeill is our dressage trainer. A competitive dressage rider with over 25 years of successful show ring experience, Shanna has competed at the North American Young Rider Championships, and shown through to the FEI levels, attaining several qualifying scores to earn a spot on the Canadian Equestrian Team Long List in 1999,2000,2001 and 2008. She has had the opportunity to train and learn under the great influences of Gillian Wright (Trakehner Glen) and Olympian Gina Smith since 1998. Shanna completed her Level 1 Equine Canada Coaching Certification in 2003, and is working on the upgrade to High Performance Certification. She enjoys teaching others and understands which elements of the dressage discipline are particularly important for enhancing performance in the show jumping ring.
