I have accumulated over 30 years of experience riding, training, and handling horses. I have received formal instruction in the disciplines of dressage, eventing, polo, hunt seat, jumping, driving, and saddleseat. Some of the breeds I have worked with include Thoroughbred, Friesian, Arabian, American Saddlebred, Standardbred, Morgan, Tennessee Walker, American Quarter Horse, and various Warmblood and draft breeds.
I specialize in starting young horses, problem solving, and behavior modification. I have extensive experience in rehabilitating thoroughbreds from the racetrack.
I have mastered management of full service training facilities from 10-25 horses each. I possess considerable skill preparing horses, tack, and riders for competitions ranging in levels from 4-H to advanced level competitions. I have over 20 years of experience in riding and basic horse care instruction for students, ages four to adult, from beginning through advanced ability. My clients are comprised of those who are first time horse owners and beginners to more experienced riders/handlers desiring to advance through the competition levels.
