"KYB is a high quality training facility. Professionalism and dressage advancement are found at this barn. The staff are inclusive whether you are a beginner or advanced. There is a attitude of work hard and be a team. There are a lot of opportunities for showing and clinics. The staff take great care of the horses and they are trained consistently. The trainers give feedback regularly to update training for horses and riders. I am going on 2 1/2 years and enjoy it very much."

"The dressage training at KYB dressage is beyond A+. I have searched for three years for excellent dressage training, as I am a convert from h/J. I had almost given up trying to find excellent training as I had in the hunters and jumpers, and needed it as I had a good horse but it is learning a new way to ride. I serendipitously met Yvonne Barteau on Facebook and she helped me through video at first. It worked. So I brought my young horse for training and only planned to stay a week with my older horse. Well, after a week I realized I was in dressage Heaven. You will not find better trainers in Yvonne and Kym Barteau, and their assistants Amber Gibb and Hudi Barteau. They are tough but extremely kind and compassionate to riders and the LOVE the horses. Their success nationally has been continuous over the years. Their staff is nice, friendly, very responsible ad competent and will go the extra mile for you. The facilities are excellent too. KYB is the very best, if it wasn't I would not be commuting between Virginia and Illinois to train here. Just beyond excellent!!!!!"

"The KYB Dressage & Grand Prix Equestrian teams are absolute professionals when it comes to barn management and dressage training. The care and facility is state of the art for both horse and rider. I would highly recommend to any person looking for exceptional training and boarding."

"We've had two horses at GPE for several years now and I'm just as happy with the care they are receiving today as the day we pulled in. As a busy parent and business owner, knowing that our horses are receiving the best care and attention is priceless. KYB takes care of absolutely everything. Their feeding program is top notch and includes a daily lunch of beet pulp. They take care of feeding supplements, blankets are on/off (and even washed when needed) and turn-out is customized to what our horses need. They take care of worming, the equine dentist, the farrier and will take care of any medical needs you have. Due to the heat this summer, the boys were frequently hosed down. The best part? All this care is included with my board! I am always 100% confident that Dutch and Wimbledon are in safe hands when we're out of town. The amenities for me personally were beyond my wildest dreams when I arrived! I have wireless internet if I need to take a quick meeting. Basically, I feel like a member of a family here - including joining the GPE staff for meals and get-togethers. Thanks for everything you do!"
