About Avalon Farm

It’s about finding the best horse for amateurs. The right fit means a happy horse & rider.

It’s always been my belief, give someone an honest representation and a good match of horse & rider and both horse and human will find fulfillment, the ultimate quest and the best plan for a happy, healthy future for our horses.

Gerrit & meAvalon Farm, located in the heart of Reno, Nevada, began importing Friesians for dressage in 2003 and has since added other Warmbloods to its stables. My focus was, and is finding the best horses for amateurs because the right fit means a happy horse & rider.  I look for quiet temperaments and ridability as the top priorities, as well as suitability for dressage. 

Our trainer, Victor Pozzo, specializes in teaching piaffe and passage in the Classical tradition. He believes in making learning fun for our horses, and all of us. In our training process, the character of each horse as an individual becomes clearer.  This gives us the information needed to fit you, the amateur rider, to that ‘just right’ horse.  This means a happy horse and rider for the long run, which for me, is the definition of success!
