Ceyda Sezer Dixon
Ceyda Sezer Dixon’s passion for horses began at the young age of six and developed into an intense dedication to the hunter jumper sport. She began her show career in the hunters and equitation as a junior rider, and went on to train in show jumping with Olympian Chris Kappler and later, five time Olympian, Anne Kursinski.
From her Olympic coaches, Ceyda learned the discipline, dedication, and meticulous attention needed to not only excel in the sport of hunter jumpers, but to be the best. Throughout her career, Ceyda has added to her resume impressively by competing successfully in prestigious shows such as the Winter Equestrian Festival, Lake Placid Horse Show, Upperville Colt and Horse Show, HITS Saugerties, Devon, and others. While actively training and showing nationwide, Ceyda earned her Economics and Business degree from Lafayette College in Easton, Pennsylvania.
Ceyda enjoys teaching children, adolescents, and adults who are passionate and dedicated to learning the classic principles of the American forward riding system that she learned from Anne Kursinski and Chris Kappler. With a Masters degree in mental health, specializing in sports psychology, Ceyda brings a unique level of understanding and positive reinforcement to her coaching style. This allows her students to focus and achieve the goals they have set for themselves.
Ceyda currently is the owner and operator of her show stables, Seven Hills Farm, LLC, in Roswell, GA where she is continuing in the next chapter of an exceptional life with horses.

The Seven Hills team takes pride in providing individualized, expert care to our equine residents.
Coco & Bentley
Ceyda’s beloved Beagle, Coco, and recently rescued hound, Bentley, can be counted on to deliver a warm welcome to clients and visitors to Seven Hills Farm. Coco can be seen lounging by Ceyda’s side as she teaches lessons, sniffing for horse treat crumbles or chasing the occasional squirrel or butterfly. Bentley takes the job of guarding the farm very seriously, and finds lookout areas where he can keep an eye on Ceyda in the arena and incoming visitors on top of the hill. Playing fetch and chasing the gator are his favorite past times.
