Gill Kallenberger grew up in England and started
riding through the Duke of Edinburgh's award scheme
She competed internationally in the jumpers
division from 1960-1967, and then relocated to
Germany to study the art of dressage.
After fine-tuning her dressage skills, Ms.
Kallenberger moved to Panama and taught at a
100-horse facility in the Canal Zone and put on
many three-day events and jumper shows.
Kallenberger was invited to Dallas in 1973 to
observe horses trained as "hunters", an alternate
form of English riding, focusing on style and form
while jumping instead of speed. The art of
"Hunters" provided a new form of competition not yet
developed in the riding community in Europe and
South Central America. Ms. Kallenberger instantly
fell in love with the hunter style of riding and
decided to remain in Dallas to learn more.
In 1974 Ms. Kallenberger opened a hunter/jumper
facility in Carrollton, named Greenbriar Stables.
At the time, only two other show barns existed
within the DFW area, so there was a great need for
quality instruction. In 1984 the stable's name
changed to The Paddocks since moving to Dallas, Ms.
Kallenberger has also co-founded the Dallas Dressage
Club and was President of the Dallas
Hunter/Jumper Club. In addition to attending both
hunter/jumper A-shows and schooling shows for the
last 40 years, Ms. Kallenberger has coached many of
Texas' top riders and trained nationally ranked and
"Year End Winner" horses, including Fiddlers Bridge,
Historic Lane and Katcha Lookin'.
