We cater to the discriminating dressage rider who is looking for exceptional care and facilities in a smaller, private barn. Owned and operated by Dr. Lucy Tidd, a veterinarian and accomplished FEI rider. We are excited to offer a new choice in dressage boarding and training. Our resident trainer is Jordan Rich. His talents span from youngsters to the FEI horse. His fair, kind and classical approach allows both horses and riders of all levels to progress in a positive and fun way.

Fabulous lease opportunity. Lola (L’Amour Fou) is a 7 year old (L’Espoir (Lord Loxley) x Deniro) 17.1 hand mare. She has shown extremely successfully through 3rd Level with many, many, wins, high scores and championships plus 3 invitations to the US Dressage Finals. Schooling PSG. Lola is an absolute barn favorite with a lovely, sweet, easy-going personality. She is comfortable to ride and the judges love her. She typically receives 8s for gaits.
I adore this mare and she is only available as I prefer my horses to be hot and sensitive and she is just a chill girl. As she is a big girl, she is not for a weak rider. This is a super and unusual opportunity to lease a very high quality horse. This lease requires that she stays at Locks Edge and must stay in a training/lesson program with USDF Gold Medalist Siobhan Byrne. PM or email at [email protected] for more info

We are so grateful to have Siobhan and all of our wonderful boarders and friends as a part of our Locks Edge family. They truly are an incredible and inspiring group!

What a year! We had a lot of successes this year. Some stats:

2 USDF Gold Medals
2 USDF Silver Medals
1 USDF Silver Bar

3 Top Ten USDF Year-End Award Rankings

3 horses qualified for USDF Finals

Our team competed in championship classes at the Region 1 GAIG Finals, CBLM Finals, Developing Horse National Championships, and USDF Finals, coming away with:
1 Championship (CBLMs)
2 Reserve Championships (GAIGs, CBLMs)
3 Third Place (GAIGs, CBLMs)
2 Fourth Place (GAIGs, CBLMs)
6 Fifth Place (GAIGs, CBLMs, USDF Finals)
1 Sixth Place (GAIGs)
1 Eighth Place (GAIGs)
1 Twelfth Place (DHNC)

This year also brought some tough times, especially the tragic loss of one of the horses in our barn family. We have an amazing community here at Locks Edge, and the kindness and generosity that our group brings to the table is truly awe-inspiring. I can’t thank you all enough.

Huge thank you also to Kevin Oyarzo for his excellent farrier work, Dr. James Lewis, Dr. Paul Anikis, and Cate Fiolka and Theresa Keyes of Ride Times LLC for all of their support and great service.

Can’t wait to see what 2020 has in store.

CBLM Finals 2019 is a wrap. More to come, but I wanted to take a moment to say how much I love this team. Successes were celebrated, support and encouragement given in difficult times, and it was all so genuine. I’m so lucky to be surrounded by such wonderful people, both at this show and back home at Locks Edge.

Finally getting around to my write up from Rosemount! Congratulations to Jessie Ginsburg and Vodermus on their 70% for second place in the USDF Freestyle class (Fourth Level), and successful I-1 debut, scoring 63.5% for the win.

I was supposed to take Waki, but he was recovering from a virus, so Lindy Taylor sent her Galantha in his place as a last minute substitute. Despite not riding Gigi much and having never even ridden through a test with her, much less shown her, we had a very successful weekend with a 66.875% for first and 63.875% for third at 3-3, qualifying for GAIGs and winning Third Level high score on Saturday. Thank you Lindy, for the opportunity to show your super fun mare!

Rider spots are currently FULL but we look forward to having Siobhan as a regular clinician with priority spots going to our fabulous boarders!! If you’d like to get on the waitlist please message Shera Ann Solomon!

Siobhan’s record is EXTENSIVE!

And her training skills show in all of her students who are consistently top place finishers and high score winners throughout the area!

Siobhan came up through the Young Rider program and upon graduating high school moved to San Diego to work with Steffen Peters and his then-assistant, Allyson Rogers (now of ALR Dressage.) After several years in California, Siobhan moved to New Jersey to attend Rutgers University, where she completed a degree in Philosophy. Her business name, “Qualia Dressage”, is a nod to her studies in philosophy. You can learn about Qualia Dressage here

We had a fantastic weekend at Michele Wellman’s fantastic show, Dressage, By Chance? My clients all rode so well and made me so proud.

Jessie Ginsburg won her PSG on Saturday with a 68%, and finally got to debut her Fourth Level freestyle! They finished third in a large class with a 69%.

Abby Rowe had her recognized show debut this weekend and rocked it! She and her partner Shine scored a 72, 72, 71 and 68% at Training Level tests 2 and 3. They won three out of four classes and were High Score Jr/Yr both days.

Lucy Tidd earned a 65% and 62% in the GP with Ellert HB, placing first and second and earning her USDF Gold Medal. She also won 4-3 with L’Amour Fou on Sunday with a 65%.

Big thank you to Ema Klugman for riding my youngster Friendscout today. She placed first and second in Training Level tests 2 and 3 with a 77% and 68%. She also won Training Level High Score, Open High Score, and the GOV High Score breed award.

Last but not least, my Wachenheim won the FEI freestyle class with a 68% (not too shabby, considering that I put it together in two weeks and only got to practice it twice!) and won the Intermediate TOC class today with a 66% at I-2. He also earned the Intermediate/GP High Score award.

Thank you Michele and crew for such a well run event.

Successful show at the June Vada/Nova show at Morven Park this weekend!

Jessie Ginsburg and Vodermus were solidly in the ribbons with 2nd through 4th place placings and mid-60s scores in the PSG.

Anne Hurwitz and Fabiano won all of their FEI TOC classes with solid scores in the 60s.

Lucy Tidd and her herd did well. Highlights were Ellert HB winning his Developing GP qualifier with a 66.3%, Evita winning the PSG with a 65%, Budweiser winning a 1-3 class with a 68%, and L'Amour Fou winning 3-3 with a 67%.

My own Friendscout started off on the wrong foot by pulling down half a stall wall when he reared up and got his foot caught over the wall, along with some young horse shenanigans under saddle. 🤦‍♀️ He redeemed himself for a win in T-2 on Sunday with a 72.5%.

And last but not least, our Locks Edge team won the GMO Team Challenge! Thanks Vada/Nova for a great show.

Exciting day taking not one, but two horses down the centerline at a Grand Prix. Huge thank you to Anne Hurwitz for letting me ride her wonderful Fabiano in his first Grand Prix. Fabi was the big winner with a 64%—would have been a 66% if his idiot rider hadn’t gone off course. 🤦🏻‍♀️ My Wachenheim was second with a 61%—still ironing out some bobbles, but lots of good marks. Both boys were total stars in a challenging warmup arena. Torrential rains we’ve had recently have not been kind to footing.

We are beyond thrilled to be able to congratulate our resident trainer, Siobhan Byrne, on earning her USDF Gold Medal on her self-trained Wachenheim this weekend.

Auditors welcome--just show up and pay at the door ($30/day, $50/weekend). We will have snacks/drinks but no lunch this weekend--we weren't sure if this clinic would actually happen due to Jeremy's recent move to Aiken, so we weren't able to order lunch in advance.
