Yvonne Barteau is a lifetime horsewoman with a unique and varied background.   Her riding experience began in the hunter jumper world followed by seven years on the standardbred and thoroughbred racetracks of America and Canada eventually becoming a trainer in that field. Yvonne then spent a number of years in northern  Florida retraining problem horses before she met her husband Kim Barteau who was the head trainer at the Arabian Nights Dinner

Theater in Orlando Florida.  She joined the company as Principle Trainer and eventually became the Director of Entertainment Operations and a Feature Performer in the Nightly show.

Dressage then became her lifetime passion and she and husband Kim founded KYB Dressage fifteen years ago where they have finished over a dozen horses to the Grand Prix level.
In 2007 Yvonne’s book on Horse Personalities Ride the Right Horse published by Storey won the Equine Book of the Year Award and she has since given many lectures and clinics on the subject of understanding equine temperament and how it can enhance your relationship and communication pattern with your horse.
Still quite interested in Equestrian Art as entertainment Yvonne and family continued doing equine exhibitions around the country and either Kim or Yvonne have appeared at many Equine Affaires, Equitana USA, Madison Square Gardens and the TODAY show just to name a few.
Now based at Ginna Frantz”s Grand Prix Equestrian in Maple Park Illinois Kim and Yvonne along with their family and crew are finding a balance between competition dressage and equine entertainment.
