Linda Landers

Linda is available for lessons and lunge lessons. She has had extensive experience training horses and people. She will travel to you for lessons as well.

Heather Gasper

Heather began riding when she was 6. Western riding was her first step into the Equine world and her love for the sport grew from there. She later began riding English and was introduced to Dressage. It didn’t take long for her to become completely enthralled with the sport.
Horses became her life!

As trainer of Gasper Dressage & Training, I travel to clients boarding facilities and private farms. I provide my clients with training rides and lessons in the Liberty and surrounding Kansas City area. To ensure safety no matter where I train or teach, I do carry insurance.
It is my goal to help my clients and their horses to have consistent training to move up the levels and have a better understanding between each other.

Jackie Gladu

Jackie is a Licensed Therapeutic Massage Therapist in both Colorado and Florida and has been working on people and horses for over 20 years.  Being a rider herself gives her the advantage of understanding the dialogue between the horse and rider and being a Massage Therapist gives her the advantage of understanding the bio-mechanical connection between them as well. 

Jackie has been fitting saddles for over 8 years and has been working as a dedicated Independent Saddle Fitter for Selleria Equipe for over 5 years. 

Come learn why Equipe saddles are so different from every other saddle out there.  Learn about the different tree materials and why we believe our memory foam is far superior to wool flocked saddles. 

Schedule an appointment with Sara or Linda with Landers Dressage and come feel what it’s like to ride in the saddle that Charlotte Dujardin, Kasey Perry-Glass, Ben Maher and Danielle Goldstein choose for their very own.
