Sonja Zinke - Trainer on call...She is the trainer Extraordinaire. Scholastically trained in Germany, she learned under Alwin Schoeckmoehle to achieve her Pferdewirt degree (translates to Equine Management).
In 1998 she moved from Germany to the US with her Friesians...she is one of the few that brought attention to the Friesians. She is specialized in the Friesian breed but her knowledge extends to all horses but it's the Friesians that holds the most for her. Sonja's experience and knowledge with horses are endless. Sonja Zinke imported, bred, raised, trained and showed horses for almost 30 years.
Her ability to work with young horses and adjust to their different levels, in age and accomplishments, is her forte; Sonja's primary goal is working with students to ensure their lessons are efficient and their aids applied effectively. She takes personal pride in the accomplishments of her students. Sonja encourage students and horse owners to join in events like; parades, exhibitions and equine events. If you are looking for an instructor who is encouraging you and a partner in achieving your goals, please consider Sonja.

Black Canyon Dressage was built with several ideas in mind...first as a networking facility...a place to meet and greet people with the same ideas and aspirations. Open to the public, we are offering our facilities to you...BCD is leasing their premier dressage court.
Trainers: if you are looking for a quiet location to work your charges, we can help. As you gear up for the show season, you can trailer your horse in and work as if this is the show that counts. Please contact us to talk specifics.
BCD wants to become a networking location where everyone can share and find the trainer they have been looking for. Find the people that can help guide you to your goals and start a lifelong friendship.
BCD will have clinics and schooling shows. We are a new venue, but have plans to have regular clinics, lessons, schooling shows.
