Friday Hill Dressage provides training and coaching for horse and rider. Tom and Ellen meet with clients regularly to discuss training and competitive goals and to review strategy. Recognizing that no horse – rider partnership is the same, every effort is made to develop a program that best suits the individual and their horse.

In addition to Friday Hill’s in-barn programs, Tom is available as a clinician at locations across Canada and the United States. To learn more about Friday Hill programs, please don’t hesitate to contact us .

“I have known Tom Dvorak for over 20 years and can say I have never met anyone as dedicated to the sport of dressage, both competitively and in training as he is. His results in the competition ring speak for themselves, his correctness and talent for training horses is second to none and his passion is evident in everything he does. He is honest and hardworking, without ego, a stickler for detail and above all a good person.There’s no one better.”

Sheri Dumonceaux, Owner/Trainer Horizon Equestrian Centre, Cochrane Alberta

“I have been training Tom Dvorak and his horses for the past several years. His professionalism and horsemanship speaks for itself. He is completely dedicated and always willing to go the extra mile to get the job done.”

Lars Petersen, Legacy Farms

“I have judged dressage for over 40 years, in twenty countries and will retire from international status in 2015 and therefore can attest to Tom's ability as a trainer, competitive rider and coach. He is a true horseman having developed a number of horses from Basic to Grand Prix proving himself time and time again in the international dressage ring. Tom is highly regarded in the North American dressage community, is a superb competitor and is deeply deserving of a new opportunity to ride at the international level.”

Lorraine MacDonald, FEI International Four Star Judge
