Elizabeth Johnson: Artisan Dressage

Trainer Spotlight on Elizabeth Johnson

How long have you been training Dressage?

I have been teaching since I moved to San Diego in 1979.

What's your favorite memory from your time as a trainer?

My absolute favorite memory as a trainer was when my daughter won Individual Gold at NAJYRC in 2008!

Tell us about your favorite horse that you've trained or owned.

I think my favorite horse was Meeko. Born and raised in my barn and allowed my daughter to bridge into upper level. He was a wonderful character.

Tell us about a favorite product that you use for riding or grooming.

I love the Leovet 5-Star Detangler, as well Equipe saddles.

Are you currently accepting new clients for training?

Yes, I am working to expand my teaching business as a mobile instructor and also fill my barn with training horses!

Give us a Dressage training pro tip that we can share with the CDS San Diego membership.

It is a universal tip for all training. Listen to your horse. If he resists, he may hurt. Look out for ulcers, ill fitting saddles, tooth issues and more!

Thank you to Elizabeth for her responses! Contact Elizabeth Johnson at
