What We Offer

Killerney Farm offers lessons from qualified instructors and coaches. Unless you own or lease your own horse we are very limited to lesson horses as being a lesson facility is not our focus.

Many of our riders at Killerney Farm are also training and being coached by knowledgeable and qualified instructors.

Our Devoted Riding Staff

KATHLEEN SCHIRMAIERBeginner, Hunter/Jumper
Kathleen has a background of jumpers that started competitions in Ireland and continued here in Canada. Competing through the Junior Jumpers and up into the 1.20m’s. Kathleen rode with respected horsemen and women such as members of the Ross family. Michel Vaillancourt, Mark Laskin, as well as her own father who had shown in National Jumping Competitions at the Royal and Madison Square Gardens. Her specialty is introducing the young rider to the world of horses and moving them through the levels of competition and riding. Focusing on individual lessons for the beginner rider and then introducing them to group atmosphere is a priority, Encouraging riders to move beyond their comfort zone but not ability is her belief.
Hi there, my name is Casey Dermott, I am a dressage rider and coach and I’m so happy to be part of the Killerney Farm family. I grew up riding in the local Pony Club, where I competed in international PPG, national quizzes, rallies, and tetrathlons. I grew up with an upper-level eventer as a sister, so I have some roots in the eventing community where I have several students competing through the CCI ** level, including at the North American Young Riders Championships and other major event sites such as Galway Downs in California. I believe in creating happy horses that understand what the rider is asking of them. Helping a horse and rider understand each other clearly is really what I believe in, and is the first step to a great partnership. As a dressage rider, I have had the opportunity to ride and train with such amazing International riders like Penny Zavitz-Rockx and John Rockx in Essen Belgium, Shannon Peter, Ulf Moeller, Daniel Booker, Bonny Bonnello, Albrecht Heidemann, and local Grand Prix riders Sharon Merkell Beattie and Lindsey Stroh. I am currently riding the horses bred and purchased by Royle Farm, and will be competing them through the FEI levels this season. I am looking forward to the 2018 season, and wish everyone a safe and successful competition season full of wonderful rides and happy horses.
