Marne's breeding program is focused on the German Oldenburg Verband. This is because of the quality of the horses and diversity of pedigrees. If you are interested in learning about the quality and characteristics of the Oldenburg horse, click here to visit the Oldenburg horse breeders society.

Marne's Keys to Success in the Ring
Finding success showing at a high level of dressage is not easy. Marne has worked very hard to cultivate a dressage lifestyle around her busy career that focuses on a genuine love of horses, discipline, a sense of adventure, and the courage to keep at what can be a tough sport. Here are some of Marne's top tips:
Maximize Training PotentialHorses need work five or six days a week for fitness, but even if only two or three good training days a week, those will be enough if you make them count. Don't spend time just cruising around, plan your rides and focus on what you are working to accomplish. Adjustability (the horse being on the aids and listening to you) and being able to do the movements correctly the first and every time, should be a goal in each training session.
Treat Yourself As An AthleteYou spend a lot of money and your free time at this hobby. Be realistic in your goals and only be around positive people that are supporting you achieving them. There is no reason to pay for, or be around people with negative energy!
