I am well versed in several disciplines, as well as equine management. With an extensive background in the hunter/jumper circuit, certified veterinary technician, experience in everything from show jumping to reining, and a current education in dressage, I am able to offer a broad spectrum of knowledge.
My training system is strongly grounded in the principles of the German Training Scale. Starting with rhythm, relaxation, connection, straightness, impulsion, and collection - the purpose being to develop to the fullest the horse's mental and physical aptitude, and willingness to perform.
I follow the Conrad Schumacher methodology of training: "Enhancing the rider's physical and mental awareness to create maximum harmony with the horse is the cornerstone of the training philosophy. The focus on mental fitness and rider awareness are developed through the basic foundation of the scales of training, the prerequisites for optimum performance, and the selection of working patterns to achieve correct execution of movements throughout the levels."
