Kelly Young-Dickson

Kelly has been riding since the age of six and grew up in the Chicagoland area doing the hunters and jumpers, competing to the Grand Prix level. She spent a year in Elmshorn Germany at the Holsteiner Verband focusing on Dressage and starting young horses under saddle. Kelly held several zone titles as a junior and amateur rider in the Midwest. 


Professionally, Kelly has trained 100's of horses and riders at all levels. Specialties include Hunters and Jumpers, Dressage, clinics and judging.  Some highlights for the most recent years are taking young riders to Pony Finals with top placings, junior riders to Junior Hunter Finals and one student is currently riding for the Spanish team with many Grand Prix wins and top placings.


Kelly is known and appreciated for her riding ability, expertise and fun loving personality.


Brittany Vaclaw

Brittany is owner and operator of Timber Grove Equestrian Center. She's been riding horses since she can remember.  Growing up with horses in her backyard, she had a hands on experience caring for them on a daily basis. 


Brittany left home to pursue a degree in Education, got married and started her own family.  Her passion for horses never stopped, and she somehow convinced her non-horse husband to get a couple horses "for the kids".  That escalated quickly into what is now Timber Grove Equestrian Center.


Brittany continues taking lessons and learning new skills.  She rides both Western and English.  She believes in Timber Grove providing positive equine experiences through lessons, horsemanship, and barn community.
