Christine Drentwett:
Born1972 in New York, Christine began riding at the age of 8. She trained and later worked at the "Parkview Riding Stable" in Long Island, NY. At age 13 Christine started showing "English", competing at "Jumpers" and qualifying for Metal Mac Clay. When she turned 18 her family moved to Orlando, Florida, where she started breeding race horses and then later moved on, riding for Mark Miller at his world famous horse show "ARABIAN NIGHTS".
She stayed with the show for 6 years and underwent thorough training in:
Trickriding-Westernriding
Circus Bareback riding
Bullwhips from horseback and on the ground
Dressage (6 Years training with Kim and Yvonne Barteau)
Firebolas from the ground
Performance of liberty horses (e.g.showing Walter Farleys "Black Stallion" and also riding the Black Stallion without saddle and bridle)
Stuntwork like highfalls and other action stunts
Tricktraining (Chrissy studied with Pat Crampton,who was trained by the famous Glenn Randol)

Christine Drentwett trained for 5 years Trapeez and Web with Gayner Johnson and performed for Disney, as well as at the Sarasota Circus Festival.

In 1997 Christine got hired in Germany at Europes biggest travelling horse show "DER ZAUBERWALD" which had been created by Franz Althoff and Guenther Froehlich, who had founded the FPS (Friesian Horse Society) in Germany in 1997 and was the first importer of Frisians to Germany, and at the same time introducing them into dressage competition. Having already a lot of experience working with Arabians, Quarter Horses and the warmblood breeds used for Jumping and Dressage, Christine was now challanged to train and perform baroque breeds like Friesians and Andalusians. She intensified her Dressage studies with great German trainers like Sabine Schut-Kery, Stephanie Meyer-Bliss, Thorsten Huesken, Britta Rasche, Fritz Kruemmel and Dutch Friesian specialist Cor deJong.

Christine had now developed the abilities to train horses for competition, as well as alternative movements for exhibitions such as Spanish walk, bowing, the lay down, the sit position, rearing on command, high trott and Liberty. In 2003 Christine also started to ride with the Spanish "Garrocha", an almost 13Ft long lance that is used to herd the fighting bulls and requires the highest level of communication between horse and rider.

After 8 Years of performing and training in Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium, Christine returned to the USA in Feb. 2005 to open her own boarding, training and exhibition facility "PARADISE FARMS" in Clermont, Florida.

In the Summer of 2006 "ARABIAN NIGHTS" offered Christine the position of Headtrainer and for the next two and a half years she was in charge of the training of all horses and riders involved in one of the biggest shows in the world. In addition she constantly developed new acts and routines for the show while she kept performing in it. According to Hanna Miller and her father Mark Miller who run and own" ARABIAN NIGHTS", Christine mastered this exceptional challenge outstandingly. She stays in close contact with the show, training horses and personnel and performing at special events.

Currently Christine, who is now the mother of two beautiful children, daughter Shawn and son Aaron, and her husband, Tobias Drentwett continue to run "PARADISE FARMS", which Christine uses as her homebase from where she keeps venturing out into the world of horses.
