Our Approach

Receiving a wholistic care strategy that combines exercise, nutrition, ample turn-out, individualized maintenance and as much or little show exposure as is desired, horses at Normandy Farm are prepared to excel. Customized, all-inclusive programs are designed for each animal with riders’ enjoyment and safety as a top priority. With an emphasis on dressage, trainers work alongside esteemed veterinarians, farriers, breeders, and sports medicine care providers to maximize potential and produce the sport’s finest athletes.

Best Practices

Don’t let the small footprint confuse large ambition! Under the tutelage of esteemed USDF Bronze, Silver and Gold Medalist, Wanja Gerlach, Normandy athletes are treated to a tailored training approach to achieve individual goals. With these goals in mind, Normandy Farm professionals work with a very small number of horses and owners of all ages and levels — aspiring to marry education in the sport with enjoyment of the animal. Whether schooling, exercising, showing or simply hacking out, Normandy equine well-being is paramount.
