With a focus on confidence, leadership and the relationship, my goal is for both the horse and the rider to attain the skills and knowledge that create the ultimate partnerships, both on the ground and up into the saddle.
You will learn the nature of herd dynamics, to better set yourself and your horse up for success. You will learn the communication and relationship skills that will benefit both you and your horse for a lifetime. With leardership skills, young horses become willing and responsive, and troubled horses learn to trust. You and your horse will learn how to perform as partners in everything you do, from trail riding to the show ring.
You will learn the techniques to create impulsion. You will learn the biomechanics of the horse for balanced riding, so your horse can experience the ultimate freedom of movement.
Children and adults learn complete horsemanship from care to communication, both on the ground and under saddle, for a safe, fun, successful, and rewarding relationship.
Continuing Education is a priority and I feel, the key element to enhancing my skills and fulfilling my dream of being successful with both horses and riders. I have over 1600 hours of hands-on clinical time with some the most renowned trainers and clinicians in the world, including World Reining Champion Craig Johnson, Winner of 2009 Road To the Horse Colt Start Competition, Richard Winters, Foundation and Performance Horse Specialist Bruce Logan, world famous Horseman and Colt Starter Bryan Neubert, Ohio Certified Judge and Clinician Terry Myers, Dressage Naturallys Karen Rohlf, Horsemanship for Womens Karen Scholl, as well as Parelli Professionals Carol Coppinger, Sharon Lindy, Christi Reins, NitaJo Rush and Dave Lichman.
I am a member of the Certified Horsemans Association, and am Certified in the Study of Natural Horsemanship.
I offer both horse and rider lessons, in an individual or group setting, and will travel.
