Ryan Bell thinks outside the box and the lettered arena so important to dressage. He loves the challenging horses that other riders abandon, often for good reason — training them in his gently persistent way, coaxing them to manifest their athleticism and brilliance.
Earning his USDF Bronze, Silver, Gold medals with his own horses, Ryan has competed over 10 horses to the FEI levels including 4 horses to Grand Prix.
Ryan’s approach to training is kind and sympathetic with his focus on the correct development of the dressage horse and rider. He teaches all levels of riders and takes all levels of horses in training. With his calm, focused, relaxed environment, you are bound to succeed. His training is focused on harmony and enjoyment.
Ryan has trained extensively in Holland and Germany with some of the best riders and trainers in the world, including several former #1 world ranked riders. A veteran of the junior divisions, Ryan competed extensively through the international young rider, small tour, and Under 25 Grand Prix divisons. During his Young Rider years, he had several horses invited to the Festival of Champions.
