Nicole L Dlugosz | Owner/Trainer at Arizen Acres LLC

Nicole grew up riding in the Chicagoland area at the age of 9 years old.  Her early riding years consisted of a well-rounded education of hunter/jumper and western riding before focusing on her passion for dressage training. 

Nicole's love for off-track Thoroughbreds and the art of dressage has become her life's work.  Her philosophy is that dressage is truly for every horse, and that Thoroughbreds can excel in the dressage ring with time and proper training.

Nicole now operates her own boutique training and sales farm, Arizen Acres LLC, in the heart of the Bluegrass in beautiful Paris, Kentucky.  While Nicole enjoys working with all breeds, her primary focus is putting a solid dressage foundation on off-track Thoroughbred horses.
