What "style" do I teach? No, it's not "English" or "Western" - it is the language of the horse, pure and simple! I do use comfortable "English" dressage style saddles and bitless bridles on my horses.

Experience horses for the first time - riding or just being with horses and learning from them! There are lots of horse activities that can be done on the ground. Being around horses is healing to the mind, body, and spirit. Learning how to communicate with them using body language can create personal breakthroughs!

For the advancing horseperson: learn natural horsemanship skills, connecting and bonding with horses, schooling exercises to develop horse and rider including liberty work, in hand work, cavesson work. For the more advanced rider, learn collected riding skills. Specializing in bitless bridle use and selection, and transitioning horses to bitless riding. Partnership, love, and harmony with the horse always comes first!

We are a genuine holistic center: my other services include consultations for more natural horse care, diet and nutrition programs, natural health management, designing equine facilities and paddock set ups for better horse care, developing therapeutic rehab exercise programs for horses recovering from injuries, fine-tuning our communication with equines, and more!

Yvonne Welz is a professional horsewoman with over 35 years of equine management and training experience. Formerly a competitive dressage rider, she schooled many horses up to an advanced level and achieved national awards with them. Always focused on learning, she has studied the art of classical horsemanship for over 25 years, including the French classical methods. She has trained many horses from scratch, acquiring them as yearlings or untrained, starting them out under saddle and schooling them to higher levels. She has enjoyed giving riding lessons to children and adults since the 1990's. In the 2000's, she studied several different methods of natural horsemanship, and also trained in equine nutrition, saddle fitting, and barefoot hoof trimming. She was instrumental in helping to introduce the methods of natural barefoot horse care to the USA in 2000. In 2013, she embraced collected high school riding without the use of bits or spurs, and has not looked back. Enjoy her holistic approach and absolute love for the horse!
