Rider, Trainer, Instructor
An FEI Trainer and Competitor, Triana is originally from North Florida. An equestrian from a very young age, she gained experience in a wide variety of disciplines before turning her full attention to dressage at age 18. She spent the next seven years in Wellington, Florida working for some of the top dressage barns before relocating to California 12+ years ago. She is based in San Marcos.
Triana’s talents include bringing horses and students from Training to FEI levels. From just broke 3-year olds to Grand Prix horses—and from experienced beginning riders up through the levels—her goal is to develop a correctly trained, fulfilling partnership between both horse and rider. The well-being of the horses in her care and the goals of her students and clients are the forefront of her focus and she is well known in the industry for her exceptional ability to bring out the best in a variety of horses.
Classically trained, Triana has extensive experience working for and with Olympic riders and other top professionals in both the U.S. and abroad, including Conrad Schumaker, Sue Blinks, Ellen Bontje, Nona Garson, and Mary Anne Grant. She currently trains with Jo Hanneman and Kristi Wysocki.
Triana is a United States Dressage Federation Bronze and Silver Medalist.
"I am so grateful to ride and train such
wonderful horses! If you have a top horse
that you would like to see developed into
a top athlete through a gymnastic,
thoughtful, kind process, please
contact me." Triana
