WELCOME to my website.  My name is Debra Quirt and I am a Competition Coach, certified by Equestrian
Canada and Ontario Equestrian since 2002.  I offer freelance coaching services in classical dressage to riders
within a wide radius of Ottawa, Ontario.  My goal as a dressage coach and trainer is to improve your horse's
balance, suppleness, muscular strength, endurance, and athleticism -- as well as to enhance the relationship
with your horse through respect, confidence and trust.  I offer dressage training to the FEI level and work with
riders from other disciplines, including hunter/jumper, eventing and western dressage.  I am currently a
candidate for the Competition Coach Specialist certification.
