Training

Kirsten Gray and Jannike Gray are offering training services at Sonnenhof Equestrian Center and, in limited instances, off-site. 

Our team of trainers stands united in believing in the systematic training and education of the horse, using lunging, long-lining, dressage, poles, cavallettis, Hangbahn, hacking and jumps in our training approach. We strongly believe in furthering our education consistently, and are active students of David Collins. All of us are USDF  / USEF Medalists, and we proudly participate in many clinics around the area to further our knowledge and skill level.

Our Riding Academy is perfect for riders, who don't own a horse, but want to learn from a motivated, friendly and skilled team and well trained and well adjusted lesson horses! Riders can sign up for one or more lessons a week and get a permanent slot in our calendar to ensure progress. 

Flex Lease

Riders can also combine lessons and a flexible lease program, which is customized to their schedule and pocketbook.

​Sonnenhof Gear

We are now offering the gear you have been asking for! Our logo has gotten incredible feedback from clients and not-yet-clients!
Please inquire about how you can get our logo on your favorite pieces of clothing. We also have some shirts picked out as well as a winter jacket for the colder season. 


At Sonnenhof Equestrian Center we offer a customized boarding plan and  'artgerechte Haltung', which is a German term translating into "species appropriate horse keeping". This concept makes all our horses very happy: We explore who likes each other, who likes to be outside 24/7 during summer months, who is more comfortable with a paddock buddy etc. 

 We realize that every horse is different and has different needs. Whether you have a horse who needs to live outside, or one that requires maximum/minimum turnout, we are able to accommodate your needs. We also make sure that you are NOT paying for services you don't need; all services are customized on a as-needed basis.

  • 2-3 Grain feedings per day (16 cups max., quality Purina Feeds)

  • Daily cleaning of stall and paddock
