I began my riding career in the jumping arena and found my love for Dressage as I began to see how the flat work improved my horse's way of going. I like to incorporate other aspects of training into my programs such as pole work, cavalettis, in-hand, and trails.
I have focused primarily on the lower levels and have achieved good results with many championships and top placing over my career. I pride myself in my student's success and look forward to helping you reach your goals!
I truly enjoy helping clients improve and grow their relationship with their horse(s)! I focus on abilities and strengths of each horse rider combination and strive to improve areas of weakness! Lets get focused on you!
Your goal is my goal! I aim is to assist you with determining, developing and reaching your goals! Drop us a line and lets make a plan for you and your horse!
