Charlotte Osborne

Welcome to the official website of Charlotte Osborne, an internationally acclaimed dressage rider with a passion for the artistry and athleticism of horse riding.

ABOUT US

Charlotte's journey began in the verdant landscapes of the UK, fox hunting and show jumping with her mother. After completing her University degree in Equitation Science, Charlotte emigrated to the Netherlands in pursuit of further training. This sparked a passion for dressage, and she spent several years honing her skills with Grand Prix trainers before following her dream to Georgia, where she is now based.

Charlotte has made her name as not only a deeply respected teacher, but a well-loved advocate for her horses and clients. Her experience runs deep, from starting the dressage stars of the future to training the Grand Prix. She is a seasoned competitor on the CDI circuit, demonstrating her remarkable skills and dedication in international arenas. Her ability to simplify the highest levels of training down to the basics is what allows her to speak the horse’s language, and is an integral part of her training philosophy.

Our mission

Our mission at Osborne International Dressage is to train horses to their full Grand Prix potential, focusing on solid foundational work without resorting to shortcuts. We believe in harmonic movement with our horses, building a relationship based on trust and mutual respect. These principles, as well as the belief that we are one with our horse, are the pillars of our philosophy and guide our approach to training.

Our extensive experience and prioritizing of the horses’ best interests has equipped us with a vast toolkit of techniques. This enables us to tailor our methods to suit each horse's unique needs and personality, ensuring we find the perfect training method and timeline for every horse under our care.

Beyond training, we pride ourselves on being able to match riders with their ideal equine partners. We understand that finding the perfect horse can transform a rider's journey, and we are dedicated to making that match. Our expertise extends to importing high-quality dressage horses from Europe, where Charlotte maintains connections with top trainers, carefully handpicking for potential and suitability.

Five years ago I bought my perfect riding partner from Charlotte and Guido. The whole process was first class and easy. When it came time for me to move on from riding, my first choice was to place my wonderful horse under their care to find a new owner. I could not have made a better decision. They quickly found the perfect new home at the price we agreed upon, and the whole process was transparent and seamless. I highly recommend using Osborne international Dressage, either to find your new horse or to sell your horse. They have the contacts and top staff for the best possible experience.

From start to finish, we had an absolutely wonderful experience with Osborne International Dressage! Guido and Charlotte were completely transparent about the entire process. They were prompt in their communication and extremely professional. They had our prospect ready to ride when we got to their beautiful barn. Charlotte demonstrated the horse's movements before my daughter hopped on. They followed safety protocols and made sure that horse and rider were comfortable on the lead line before letting them get to know each other. We were able to explore the property and determine which prospect was the best fit. They had all the paperwork and were excellent hosts for the prepurchase. They gave us excellent advice and all his documentation. They were available and flexible for shipping. Everything about this experience was an absolute dream! We highly recommend them!

I have been a client at Osborne Dressage for a little over a year & I tell you, you couldn’t pay me to go to another training facility. As a dressage newbie, i was extremely nervous leasing a horse & taking dressage lessons as a young adult. My nerves were for nothing! What an excellent group of people! Fair, encouraging, kind. & knowledgable! They are invested in teaching & training with the horse’s well being at the forefront. They treat your horse as if it is their own. This barn has a wonderful positive energy you can feel all over. I truly enjoy my time spent there, even just cleaning up tack or grooming the horse. Five stars!
