Still Waters Dressage would like to welcome Diane Dunn and her seven year old Dutch Warmblood/Friesian Pinto cross gelding Kragos "Gus". Diane purchased Gus as a four year old with minimal dressage training. As all horse owners know set-backs happen.

Keep an eye out for this pair to be competing at Training level later this year!

Great Horses Live Again

 

Somewhere in time's own space
There must be some sweet pastured place
Where creeks sing on and tall trees grow
Some paradise where horses go,
For by the love that guides my pen
I know great horses live again.

by Stanley Harrison, breeder, trainer, poet 1889-1980

Great Horses Live Again

Our condolences to Hannah Hewitt on the untimely passing of her magnificant partner, Johnny Cash. Although we all had only a short amount of time working with Johnny, he will forever live in all of our hearts. He was a kind and generous horse; he was a "gentle giant". In only one show together, Johnny helped Hannah achieve four of the six scores she needed for her USDF Bronze Medal, and they were the Junior/Young Rider High Point Champion of the show. We will all miss you "Johnny".

Still Waters Dressage Welcomes Duvallier

 

Jeff & Shereen Fuqua of Collecting Gaits Farm in Alpharetta, GA have generously come to an agreement with Kim Schisler of Still Waters Dressage in which Duvallier's ownership will be transferred over to Kim.

We at Still Waters are all looking forward to Duvi joining our family, and we will forever be grateful to Jeff and Shereen Fuqua for envisioning this partnership and making this all possible. Stay tuned as Kim and Duvi work toward the goal of qualifying for the 2009 Brentina Cup!

Conrad Schmacher at Applewood Farm

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
World renown dressage trainer, Conrad Schmacher, visited Applewood Farm in Alpharetta, GA for a two-day clinic. For the third time this year, Kim Schisler was fortunate enough to participate in a Conrad Schmacher clinic! Under Mr. Schmacher's talented eye, Kim had the unique opportunity to ride an extremely talented young stallion, Las Vegas. "Vegas" is a young Danish breeding stallion owned by International Grand Prix rider and trainer, Lisette Milner. As always through Mr. Schumacher's systematic training program, this pair improved leaps and bounds! A special thanks to the title sponsors of this clinic: Applewood Farm and DHF Dressage.

Equestrian Estates at White Fences

 

Claudius and Kim Schisler finish the Florida season with two solid Prix St. George tests at Equestrian Estates (White Fences). After missing out on two weeks of training in March due to Claudius being ill, Kim was unsure whether she would get to compete at Equestrian Estates. It was a last minute decision to compete, and Claudius rose to the challenge. With scores over 62% and a sixth place finish, Kim is pleased with Claudius' preformance in only his second competition at Prix St. George. Since changing Claudius' grain to Purina Ultium, Kim has noticed a tremendous improvement in Claudius' energy and attitude. A special thanks to Carlos Muniz of Purina Mills for his help with Claudius' nutritional needs!

We will miss Jules Anderson!

 

Jules Anderson is gifted with the ability to take difficult or what some people might consider "average" horses and show them what they are capable of achieving. She has taken many horses that most people would have given up on and made them into Grand Prix competitors. Jules has a gift not only with horses, but also with people. She has a unique ability to instill confidence in her students riding. Kim Schisler feels blessed to have had the opportunity to work with Jules. Kim knows that without Jules help she would not be where she is today. When Kim first came to Jules at the end of August 2007, Jules guided and supported her in some difficult decisions that she had to make regarding a horse that she owned, which she was unable to ship home from Germany. Jules helped Kim get the most out of a new partnership with Claudius, and she helped Kim and Sarastro move up to Prix St. George and Intermediare 1. Kim feels that the expression "she'd give you the shirt off her back" describes Jules best! Jules is a selfless individual that is constantly striving to help other people. We will all miss Jules, but we wish her the best of luck as she moves to Virginia where she will join her mother's Jilba Dressage with her own Teamwork Dressage.

Conrad Schumacher Clinic

 

A highlight of the 2008 Florida season for Kim was riding in a Conrad Schumacher clinic organized by Jennifer Baumert.  Mr. Schumacher trained young riders for USET from 1991-95, and, since 1997, he has trained European Championship, World Championship, and Olympic riders including Ellen Bontje and Sven and Gonnelien Rothenberger. At the 1996 Olympics, he coached Sven and Gonnelien to their silver medal team finish for the Netherlands, and Sven to his individual bronze medal. From 1979 to 1989 he trained the European Young Rider Championship first-place team and individual medal winners. He was the official trainer of the British team at the 1998 World Equestrian Games. In all, Schumacher's students have won over 40 international medals! He was the USDF Advanced Young Rider/ Junior Rider clinician for over 10 years and has multiple times led the USDF Trainers Conference.
