The goal of training and coaching at Napoleon is to build assertive, confident riders on happy, competitive horses!  Instruction and training programs are customized to the horse and rider.

Michele Pestl is an accomplished Three Day Event coach, trainer, and competitor.  Michele has been eventing in Area VII since 1980.  She started riding at the pre-training level and successfully competed through CCI** level.  Michele has received coaching and training from some of the finest instructors, including Gwen Blake, Dietrich Von Hopfgarten, Angel Menendez, Jack LeGoff and Amy Tryon.

At Napoleon, we have been very successful setting up cohesive lesson & training programs for both the horse and rider. Set your goals high!  We encourage our students to set goals for themselves and their horses each year!  Participate in our goal setting meeting every January, to kick start each new season of competing & training.
