Already during that time Sabine visited the U.S. frequently, mainly Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where she now lives since 1987, raising 2 children, running  her own advertising distribution company and training stable. In the summer of 2000 Sabine tested to become a USDF Certified InstructorTraining through 2nd Level and passed the exam on first try, being the only one to do so of 9 candidates. Up to today Sabine remains the only USDF Certified Instructor in the State of Wyoming.

How about a One-on-One Trail Ride?

We offer a very customized opportunity to enjoy a one-on-one trail ride ( lesson ) in what many people call the most beautiful scenery in the lower 48 States. At this time we do not have school horses available but are happy to help you on your own horse to enjoy the trails in a safe manner. Trail lessons require a 45-minute private lesson in the arena beforehand, where groundwork, leading, trailering and riding will be assessed and preparations will be made for our on-the-trail-adventure. Breakfast or lunch stop in Grand Teton National Park is an option, terrain, duration and distance of the ride to be discussed at set-up.

How about Germany? 

Per request we organize trips to Germany to shop for outstanding, well trained horses at the famous
Hanoverian Auctions in Verden,
 where team riders of all Nations select their upcoming talented horses. The Hannoveraner Verband also realized the demand and the market for a Hanoverian selectively bred and chosen as a leisure horse due to his/her outstanding level-headed temperment and added this type of horse to their selection in the Hanoverian Auctions in Verden! The Auctions are happening 5 - 6 times per year and a catalogue with video footage can be obtained from Sabine Kallas Dressage, LLC.

Other shopping opportunities await at select Training Facilities or directly from the breeders!

Or how about a visit to the State Stud Farms and their stallion shows in the fall of every year, to Riding Schools where lessons are taught in English language, to all sorts of horse events like the Young Horse World Championships and the CDIs of Aachen or Wiesbaden? ( and of course the famous tack stores? ).
