Currently I am working with students ages 5+ in all disciplines from first-time riders to advanced, experienced riders with just a few spots left. Whether for fun or for fine-tuning for shows, lessons are available on one of our many safe lesson horses or on your own horse. Training or starting of your horse is also available.
I believe everyone and every horse is an individual with individual needs and wants. I will work with you to set goals and a training plan, and I will take you to where you want to be as a rider and as a good horseman/horsewoman. Aside from learning how to be a safe, confident, capable, and happy rider with a happy horse, you can also learn all aspects of horse care and safe horse handling.
If you are an advanced rider, I will help you fine tune your skills and take you to the next level of balanced connected riding, helping you to get everything your horse can give you without stifling their ability or movement.
If you are a beginner, whether child or adult, I will give you the basic building blocks to give you a strong foundation for whatever goals you have with horses whether just for fun or for competing.
I grew up in South Florida and was involved in 4H and pony club as in my childhood. I showed at local and A-rated hunter/jumper shows. I trained under such trainers as Pablo Gamboa (hunter/jumper), Linda Smith (hunter/jumper), Peter Trappman (hunter/jumper and dressage), and I was a working student for Jeanette Sassoon (dressage). I moved to Fort Collins in 2001 and continued my education with top Morgan Horse trainers in all disciplines (saddle seat, driving, hunter eq and pleasure, western eq and pleasure, etc.). I began training professionally and by 2003 my clients and horses were showing successfully on the Morgan Circuit on a local and National level.
Private lessons, semi-private lessons, and small group lessons available at reasonable rates. Special package pricing is also available. Discounted prices for multiple family members taking lessons and true beginner children. Summer camp is also available. Let’s make learning fun in a safe and professional environment with a professional, experienced, and insured trainer.
