From Genevieve Trimble, Highpoint Awards Owner:
Coach. Competitor. Trainer. Breeder and Business Owner
Riding became my passion early on in life, and from the age of 6 years old I have been working with horses specializing in the discipline of dressage.
My horse career started in the discipline of jumping. I had been jumping for about 2 1/2 years when it was suggested to try dressage as well, in order to enhance my jumping skills. And as much as I liked jumping, I loved dressage, and the rest as they say is history.
The next 12 years were spent training in the Classical Art of dressage , but I craved to compete against the best in the world and hopefully one day make my way to the Olympics.
Immediately upon graduation from college, I was presented with an opportunity to become a working student for Gary & Jeannie Vander Ploeg. For the next 5 years I worked and trained under the talented and very experienced eye of Gary Vander Ploeg.
During those 5 years I was also afforded the opportunity to participate in numerous high-level clinics with world-renowned judges and coaches such as: Wolfgang H. Michaelis, Stephan Clarke, Dieter Schuele, Albrecht Heidemann , Libby McMullen and many more which allowed me to hone my skills even further.
