Gretchen Scott

About Us

Gretchen Scott is a proven event rider and trainer, competing in both dressage and eventing for over 35 years. She has competed at the CCI* level of eventing and trained through the FEI level in dressage. Gretchen is a level II ICP certified instructor through the USEA as well as a B rated member of the USPC (United States pony club).

Gretchen Scott’s first trainer, Jean (Campbell) Tugman, in her home state of Hawaii was one of the founding

forces of the ADI (American dressage institute) in Saratoga Springs. Jean (Campbell) Tugman brought her talents to Hawaii becoming a driving force of both the dressage and eventing scene in Hawaii, vowing not to let its remote location be a hindrance to top equestrian education. She hosted many top level clinicians such as Bert de Nemethy, Michael Handler, Michael Herbert, Lockie Richards and Richard Meade.

Gretchen’s early exposure to such top

international training was a guiding inspiration to seeking out a BS Degree in Equestrian Science from Stephens College.

During her years at Stephens College she spent her summers gaining further knowledge with world-renowned dressage trainer Lendon Gray and a summer with Goran “yogi” Briesner, 1984 member of the Swedish Olympic 3-day team and British Olympic 3-day coach since 1999.
