Professional trainer and Multi-National Champion, Dana Kanstul takes the reins as the official Technical Advisor and Coach for the Youth Division USA Chapter.
For over two decades, Kanstul has taken her leadership role as a professional trainer and competitive athlete through a committed and dedicated program garnering her numerous Multi-National Championship Titles, USEF Horse & Rider of the Year awards, and many more outstanding merits of recognition in various riding disciplines throughout the years.
Operating out of a private facility in Southern California, Kanstul will spearhead a training program focused on each youth athlete's goals, paying close attention to each horse's abilities alongside their equine partners. Her philosophy of Natural Horsemanship is centered around Dressage as the foundation for all riding disciplines which include English Pleasure, Equitation, Western, Saddleseat, Huntseat, and Dressage.
Aside from a very busy training operation and highly-involved show career, Kanstul is seen riding the University of Southern California's Mascot Trojan horse during college football season. She is the first woman in USC's history to ride the mascot, as well as its first-ever female trainer in the university's long history.
