--> the facility

Full Circle Dressage, Pendleton, KY opened in summer 1997 with the goal of operating a small, private, full-service facility for serious dressage riders in the Louisville area. Quickly that goal expanded to offering classical dressage training for all breeds, teaching riders of all skill levels, offering a variety of top-quality dressage horses for sale, and hosting clinics with internationally-known dressage experts.

Nothing ever freezes inside our barn during the winter. Our automatic waterers work well, our footing stays soft, our riders wear light jackets, and our horses donít need blankets. All thanks to our fabulous insulated barn. Plus: mirrors, music, 24-hour care and NO dust. Full Circle: warm, wonderful riding in all seasons.

Horses are worked every day here and visitors are always welcome to watch the process by appointment. There are several motels in La Grange at Exit 22 off I-71, eight miles from Full Circle and convenient for our visitors:

Best Western/Luxbury (502) 222-5500
Comfort Suites (502) 222-4125
Days Inn (502) 222-7192

Owners Frank and Judy Gassmann bring to Full Circle more than 30 years experience owning, showing, breeding, and caring for horses. They built their first farm, Prairie Dancer, in 1973 in Dundas, IL. In 1981 they moved to rural Madison, IN where they operated the 14-stall Madison Morgans until moving to Kentucky in 1997.

The Gassmanns also publish annual stallion directories and calendars through their company, Breeders Guide Publishing. Visit the Breeders Guide web site at http://www.breedersguide.com.
