September 18th, 2021 - Again First Places for Christine and Action!

Another great show day, this time at the Pinehurst Fall Dressage competition in Southern Pines. First place for Christine and Action with 73.095% in Second level test 3 and first place with 74.714% in First level test 2. We also received a ribbon for Highest Score of the day and a Special Recognition ribbon! Action was already settled in better than 2 weeks ago, he really performed great!

Kaela Thomas and her horse Orion shows First level as well. Their first dressage shows ever and they took home 4th place with almost 64%. As a trainer I am incredibly proud of them. On to the next one!

September 5th, 2021 - First Place for Christine Barlow-De Vries and Action Z

After 5 years Action and I went back in de show ring. We took home the 1st place in First Level test Two with 71.286% and another 1st place in Second Level test Three with 70.238%.

Action did amazing, and even more important, it doesn’t seem like he got stressed to the level where he would develop ulcers again! Our management in keeping him has never been better. The goal for now: get the Bronze Medal.

Thank you Hunt Horse Complex in Raleigh for the organization!

August 2021 - Welcome to the updated website

Since I have been living in North Carolina now for almost 2 years it was definitely time to update the website. I am incredibly happy and proud what CBV Dressage has grown into already, in just this relatively short period. From training a lot of different horses, to having a lot of great clients who are so loyal to me, to organizing all these exciting events. 

Thank you everybody for supporting me. The website is updated with a lot of new pictures taken by my husband over the past 2 years, and also a lot more information about what I’ve been doing lately and what the possibilities are.

Stay tuned because september will bring more exciting news!

July 2021 - Congratulations Willow Chase and Diablo on being Champion for NDCTA

Willow and Diablo visited CBV dressage in June for a training week. Daily lessons with Diablo and a training ride on Action definitely worked out great and they made a lot of progress just within a few days. It payed off when Willow and Diablo competed at the Carolina Horse Park and won first place.

June 2021 - CBV’s First pony camp was a huge succes!


Dressage lessons everyday, pimp your pony, photoshoot, potato race, learning from the theory book, brushing, snacking and ending the week with a dressage show in front of family and friends! A huge shout out to the horses Peek, Miller, Winston, Action and Grey for participating. Next summer we will definitely go for pony camp 2.0!
