Eliza Puttkamer-Banks (Trinity Dressage) is a dressage trainer, competitor and instructor with a diverse discipline and breed background. Originally from the Midwest, Eliza married her husband Stephen and moved to England, and then returned to the USA to New Jersey, where they have settled and are parents to a horse crazy 7 year-old daughter, Paige.
With experience as a trainer both in America and the UK, Eliza has started and developed horses from backing to FEI level work. As a USDF Bronze and Silver Medalist, L Program Participant, USEF HOY Regional Champion, National Top 5, and recipient of rider awards from training through fourth level.
Eliza has not only competed horses at FEI, but has been proud to bring many horses past A for their first experience in the dressage ring. For all the horses and riders in her program, regardless of discipline or breed, the correct and classically-based principles of the dressage training pyramid remain the heart and soul of every day’s ride, with a sympathetic application that builds a strong relationship of trust.
