The Banks Family - Stephen, Eliza and Paige
Eliza Puttkamer-Banks is a dressage trainer, competitor and instructor with a diverse discipline and breed background. With experience as a trainer both in America and the UK, Eliza has started and developed horses from backing to FEI level work. As a USDF Bronze and Silver Medalist, L Program Participant, USEF HOY Regional Champion, National Top 5, and recipient of rider awards from training through fourth level, Eliza has not only competed horses at FEI, but has been proud to bring many horses past A for their first experience in the dressage ring: from greenie to schoolmaster, the correct and classically based principles of the dressage training pyramid remain unchanged in their application. Competition is encouraged for those who wish to compete, but not required of any horse or rider. All training schedules are arranged to keep the best interests of the horse, rider and rider's budget in mind.
Eliza is currently available for lessons and training in the northern Ocean and Monmouth county areas, central Jersey area with stalls available for full training clients at Bright Meadows Farm in Perrineville, NJ. The Trinity Dressage home farm is located in Cream Ridge, NJ and trailer-in lessons are also available there.
