Meet The Trainers


Graeme Dixon

Head Trainer/Owner

Graeme Dixon, head trainer/owner, has been a regular on the San Diego hunter/jumper circuit for over 20 years. Dixon grew up in the United Kingdom and learned to ride and care for horses in the thorough and structured Pony Club method. He is also trained in the British Horse Society method. He sets specific goals for all students and creates individually tailored programs to help achieve them.

U.K. Equestrian has additional experienced senior and junior trainers on staff to supplement the lesson and training programs, and show competition schedules.


Shayna Gale


Shayna Gale, trainer/sales, is a San Diego native whose career includes over 15 years of extensive competition in the hunter, jumper, equitation and dressage arenas. She takes great pride in bringing young and inexperienced horses up through all levels of training as well as teaching riding to people of all ages.

Shayna will be transitioning away from U.K. Equestrian in order to focus on her family.  We will deeply miss her commitment to our riders, and our animals.  Thank you Shayna for the special role you have played over the years, and best of luck in all your next endeavors!
