Anne DeKeyser, Instructor/Trainer

Anne and her husband moved to Southern Pines, NC in 2008 from the Midwest.  After a lifetime of riding horses and having Hans Biss as her mentor, she started ADK Dressage, focusing on basic principles, the training scale and rider position.

She also started foxhunting and fell in love with eventing, bringing two horses up through the levels and winning the North Carolina Dressage and Combined Training Association’s (NCDCTA) Reserve Champion Horse of the Year award in 2014 with one and Reserve Champion of the War Horse Eventing Series with the other.   Also an avid Pilates student at MYB, she became a certified Pilates instructor in 2016, with a focus of working with equestrians on and off the horse helping students to become more balanced with their equine partners.  To add to her understanding of how horse, rider and tack work as one to produce a more harmonious team she became a Certified Saddle Fitter (CSF) March 2017.

When not teaching or training Anne enjoys biking, hiking and spending time with her 3 rescue dogs.
