Bobbin Hollow Equestrian Center Hires Leah Conathan

Naples, FL – Bobbin Hollow Equestrian Center hires Leah Conathan, a professional Dressage trainer and instructor who recently relocated to Naples, Florida from New England. She has been teaching dressage for 20 years to students and horses who have gone on to compete successfully through 4th level. Her skill in teaching comes from her ability to give her students the confidence necessary to ride well and compete successfully.

Her father, Leo Boyle, trained American Saddlebreds and was graduate of the Cavalry School in Ft. Riley, Kansas, an equestrian program which rivaled the cavalry schools of Germany and France. That system of education became the foundation of her teaching and training. She furthered her Dressage education with Karl Mikolka, a member of the Dressage Hall of  Fame and former Obereiter at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna. Leah currently trains with Kathy von Ertfelda, a former USET team member and highly respected Grand Prix rider and trainer.

A long time member of the New England Dressage Association, she is on their list of elite Flextime Instructors. She is currently pursuing her USDF silver medal. Leah is also an accomplished side saddle rider and lifetime member of the Myopia Hunt Club.

With a Master’s Degree in Teaching, Leah has put that education to use in teaching both horse and rider. Leah has devoted her career to refining her skills as a teacher in order to maximize each student’s learning ability. Leah welcomes Dressage students and horses of all levels and abilities to train with her at Bobbin Hollow Equestrian Center.
