"A few years ago I was thrilled to learn that Kate was coming to our area to begin her new business Volte Dressage. It is because of Kate that I'm able to pursue my passion for Dressage. Her lessons, training, and horse care are absolutely the best that I have ever experienced. Thank you Kate...because of you I'm living my dream!!! "
"Kate has helped me beyond words. It has been great that she can teach me as well as ride my horse and feel what I am feeling. I'm riding the best I have ever ridden. After all these years, I'm finally getting it. Haley and I both love riding with Kate."
"At Volte Dressage, trainer Kate Boldt offers a friendly, detail orientated hands on approach for both horse and rider. I'm delighted to be part of the team!"

"My horse and I have been working with Kate for approximately 2 years. Kate has been instrumental in my dressage achievements. My riding and understanding of dressage and dressage fundamentals has improved noticeably. Kate can assist riders of all levels, breeds and aptitudes. To some horses, moving up the levels is effortless and easy. This makes it significantly easier for a horse and rider to float up the levels and have an immediate advantage. My horse is not your stereotypical dressage horse. Kate understands this and teaches us ways to improve our scores and finds ways to help him succeed. She knows that it takes longer to develop a horse up the levels if it doesn't come naturally. She emphasizes patience, perseverance and rewarding small victories each ride. Her techniques have helped us overcome challenges, rather than succumbing to the challenge and giving up. I can't thank or recommend Kate enough and look forward to continuing our dressage journey with her."
"I saw Kate ride at a dressage seminar and I knew she would be perfect to help me with my mare. From day one, she showed her competence and expert knowledge working with a young horse. Kate is encouraging to both horse and rider giving corrections when necessary. In addition to her expertise, Kate is patient and caring. I am so fortunate to have met her. She has become a true friend and mentor."

"I cannot recommend Kate Boldt enough for help with dressage training- we are lucky to have her as a resource in this region! I sent my horse to her for some help with lower level dressage training and was truly blown away by her dedication and organization within her program. She actively manages and oversees every aspect of care from farrier and diet to groundwork and under saddle work. My horse ended up staying in her care for 6 months as I was so impressed by the progress she was able to make with him, and more importantly, convey to me to help me understand how I could ride him better. She went above and beyond to make me feel secure about having him so far away (roughly 2 hour drive one way) and was in constant communication regarding his progress and care. This year, I was able to move up a level based on the education and "buttons" Kate installed- my horse is sensitive and can be hot, so this was honestly astounding. She was able to help my horse with contact issues that I had been unable to resolve in a matter of MONTHS that I had been trying to fix for years. I would not hesitate to send any horse to her for training."
