Benjamin Pfabe is an FEI trainer, rider and competitor who began his career as a teen in Germany working for Alexa Schulten-Baumer. With a heavy focus on young horses from the beginning, his classic horsemanship skills began to get him noticed early on.
Benny moved to the US permanently in 2002, and freelanced while attending college at George Mason University in Virginia. After graduation with his degree in Communications/PR and Business, he opened his own training business in 2009 which quickly grew, while also working with Scott Hassler.
In 2012 Benny had an opportunity to continue growing the business and relocated to a breeding and training operation in Texas, where he remained for the next ten years. In 2015 he accepted an additional role as Chef d’Equip of Region 9, and helped countless young riders achieve their goals and kick off their professional careers. He also spent two seasons in Wellington working with Michael Klimke and successfully competing on the Florida circuit.
He competes yearly at regional championships and has coached numerous clients to Nationals. In 2022 he competed at the Festival of Champions, earning a very respectable 8th place in the 5 year old division.
He has been in California since June of 2022 and we are very excited that
he is now based out of Arroyo Del Mar
