Coaches

Yvonne enjoys the benefits of training and working on a frequent basis with three outstanding coaches and fellow riders: Ton de Ridder from Germany, Jose Antonio Garcia Mena from Spain and her dear friend Kathy Priest from the USA. Together, they add decades of experience as competitors, riders and coaches at the absolute highest levels, including Olympics, World Equestrian Games, World Cup Finals, and European Championships. They all share Yvonne’s criteria for the proper development of the equine athlete, along with a solid, progressive training and maintenance program that leads to optimal performance in the competition ring.

Veterinarian

Jack Snyder

Dr. Jack Snyder

Dr. Jack Snyder, DVM, has been in charge of the well-being of all of the horses in Yvonne’s program for well over a decade. A world authority on equine athletes and their care, Dr. Snyder has been a part of the FEI Veterinarian Committee and also part of the official veterinarian teams at numerous Olympics, World Equestrian Games, Pan American and other regional games.

Equine Physiotherapist

Lorenzo del Pozo

Lorenzo brings to equine physiotherapy the same passion he had during his decade-long tenure as Head Physiotherapist for Sporting de Gijon, a La Liga first-division soccer team in Spain. Although he still owns and operates a world-class clinic for top athletes, his newfound passion for equine care takes up most of his daily schedule. His expert care, constant research into new techniques and compassion for his four-legged patients makes him one of the best.
