Sabrina Bablitz, founder of Can Am Stables and Parker Riding Academy (PRA), is a dressage trainer for horses and riders of all levels from beginner to Grand Prix.
Originally from Canada, Sabrina grew up in the Eventing world. She fell in love with dressage, and continued her training under international competitors, first with Otto Sameit -who was taught at the Spanish school – and later with Bonny Bonello for 10+ years who competed both in the Olympics and the World Equestrian Games.
Prior to relocating to Colorado, Sabrina ran Evermore Riding school in Alberta Canada where she helped develop young riders who later went on to secure many awards in FEI classes.
Now at Can Am, Sabrina works with a select clientele who are dedicated to pursuing dressage. She is a firm believer in establishing ground-work before training under saddle and instructing horse and rider teams together to develop solid, well rounded, confident athletes. She also organizes off-property training opportunities for students, including cross-country schooling and trail rides, which have become hugely popular with the younger students of PRA.
Courtney Peck is a FEI level rider and trainer with her bronze and silver medals, she was able to obtain those medals on self made horses.
She has been a professional trainer for over 15 years both in California and Colorado. Many of her students whether they were adult amateurs or young riders have been able to achieve their USDF medals as well. Several of the horses that have been in training with her have been developed into successful FEI horses. One of her great joys is developing the horses from the ground up.
Courtney takes great pride in coaching her students and making them into very effective thinking riders. Her Mentor in California was the former USEA president Brian Sabo. Here are a few of the coaches she has had the privilege to ride with: Arthur Kottas, Liz Hendrix, John Lassetter, Don Sachey, Gina Miles, Catherine Haddad, Alfredo Hernandez, and Scott Hassler.
Taylor started riding at age 7 in Gurnee, IL. As a junior rider Taylor learned to ride and show throughout the Midwest on primarily young, green horsese which began her passion for the development of young horses. She won IHJA Children's Medal Finals aboard a 6 year old mare and had a top 3 placing at Marshal and Sterling Medal Finals. She then went on to compete her own 5 year old gelding in the Equitation and Junior Hunters, earning their place at all major equitation finals and Junior Hunter Finals. This included another top 3 finish at Illinois Junior Medal Finals. After her junior years she moved to Delray Beach, FL where she attended Florida Atlantic University and competed up and down the East Coast with her primary focus being in the jumper ring.
Taylor developed her skills under the watchful eyes of trainers such as Serah Vogus, Diane Carney and Kip Rosenthal. She continues to be inspired from classical riding to horsemanship. Taylor's extensive show career has given her a professional manner and a complete understanding of what is needed to compete with the best and win at 'A' rated shows. With experience in the hunters including national and international derbies, jumpers, and equitation rings, Taylor is incredibility well versed and adaptable to all levels of students and horse types.
