SueEllen C. Mally of Dog-Pond Farm (Port Jervis, NY), Owner/Trainer.


The Icelandic Horse is little known in the United States. I have the good fortune to work with a young, very nice gelding. This breed is very intelligent and willing to please.



This Welsh Cob mare has been a joy to work with. This is one of the most intelligent and willing pony breeds.

Ellen Miller's April clinic held by DAD was a huge success!
Twenty rides were scheduled over 2 days in very brisk weather!  Pictured are Rosie on Casmaran Ascension, 6 yr old Welsh Cob, with coach Ellen.



Come join us, we train hard and enjoy doing it!

I hope you have enjoyed these short training videos.
Comparatively speaking my rates for training and board are very reasonable.

If you have a passion for dressage, or just a passion for feeling in sync with your horse while riding please call me at 845-742-6725 or e-mail me at D.A.D. I will travel to your place or your choice of indoor for lessons and training, call me for info.

The next Clinic is in the works. Dates will be posted as soon as scheduled.

Suellen proudly states "I have worked and trained with Ellen Miller for many years. Ellen is outstanding in her knowledge and ability."

Ellen Miller is well-known among Mozart Festival devotees as the distinguished rider of Indius, a stunning 27-year old Trakehner who has left fans mesmerized for the past two decades in performances choreographed by Michael Mauss. Her performances in Dancing With Horses have been widely covered, in the Village Voice and elsewhere.

In her work with horses and riders, Miller relies on an ongoing training program that is practiced daily. The ultimate goal is for the rider and horse to move as one.

Miller first connected to horses through a German instructor and an Australian pony while living in Asia as a child. Miller’s worldly beginnings inform her teaching style as well as her own riding and performing. Miller began as a student at Skidmore College in Saratoga, New York. When the American Dressage Institute (ADI) made its home at Skidmore’s Riding Institute, Miller turned her sights from the classroom to the stable, enrolling as a working student, then as a groom, a rider, and ultimately a barn manager when ADI moved to Maine. While at ADI, Miller studied under instructors from the Spanish Riding School who instilled in her a love and passion for daily work and training. “The best way to learn about horses is the day after day work,” she states. There may be books and philosophy, but it’s the time with the horses, the total immersion, that teaches. Being at ADI allowed Miller access to the finest instructors and the finest animals, working with ex-Grand Prix horses and learning dressage at the highest level. Today, decades later, she affirms emphatically, “I am passionate about dressage!”
