"I will be the first to admit it, two years ago when I went to Kari Ball at European Equestrian Concepts I had no idea how a dressage trainer was going to help me, a jumper, get around a course. Not only did she conquer the problems I was having with my mare, she completely changed my view of riding and how important the flat work is if you want to be successful going around the course. Jumping is a lot more than jumping jumps; if anything, I have learned that all jumping is is just flat work with obstacles in between. I went to Kari Ball in desperate need of a riding makeover, and boy did I get one. Flat work is not just as simple as walk, trot, and canter. It is about demanding respect and having a clear line of communication, which was something I clearly lacked with my mare. After a long couple of hard weeks of training we decided to tackle a show across the creek at the Oaks.  Shortly after our success at the Oaks, Kari started training my younger twin sisters, who like me, needed a serious Kari-makeover.  In the beginning, it was pretty scary. There was a lot of running around the ring, flipping of heads, breaking of steps, chipping of fences, and even some falling off. Now, not even two years later, Katelyn Inferrera riding my mare Suspended Animation and Sarah Inferrera riding Valentijn just wrapped up their final OCIEL show of the season and each found huge success. Through out the season each twin acquired a blue ribbon in the Junior Varsity Jumper Classic along with several other high placings in the division classes that went towards Palos Verdes High School’s overall points. Who would have thought a dressage trainer would have the two highest placing riders in the Junior Varsity Jumping Division? If you would have asked two years ago, I would have said, not a chance; however, with the short amount of time I have spent with Kari, I know now that she is unstoppable." Elyse Inferrera
