Growing up in Michigan, Heidi discovered her passion for riding at the age of eleven. She pursued her horsemanship with a Thoroughbred mare and entered in the 4'6 and 4'9 jumper classes. Soon, however, she became aware ot the exciting world of Dressage and has been happily concentrating on this equestrian discipline. She continued her love of horses while attending Michigan State University in Lansing. There, realizing Heidi's ability to lead, her peers elected her Vice President of the Michigan State Equestrian Team! Heidi received her degree in Animal Science with a Pre-vet option and an Equine emphasis.

After earning her degree she moved to Florida to further her dressage career. Patrick Bursens and Jon Brons were two excellent instructors Heidi worked with. She is an FEI trainer and had cliniced with Stephen Peters and Waun Matute.

In 2004 she was accepted into training under the tutelage of Olympic Gold Medalist, Hubertus Schmidt. She moved to Germany in the winter of that year and is in full training with her stallion, Ramiros. Heidi has become proficient in the German language and Ramiros enjoyed their stay. Heidi bought a new mare, Everybody's Darling, while she was there, that she with the help of Hubertus Schmidt successfully trained to the Grand Prix. She has shown quite extensively in Germany and received over a 70%. She also accuired numerous students in Germany who were consistently placing in the 70% and above.

Heidi Degele is now back in Wellington for the 2008 Winter season and will be staying year round. She successfully competed the Prix Georges/Intermediate 1 with her stallion Ramiros and Grand Prix with her mare Everybody's Darling acheiveing her USDF Gold Medal in the 2007 winter show season

She is accepting horses in training for the Winter in Florida for the 2009 season and in also available for clinics, both on a limited basis
