I will help you match your riding skills to your horse’s and vice versa; from there, you can do anything! All my lessons begin with showing you how to communicate with your horse, and recognize how he (or she) is communicating with you. If you're not communicating fully and clearly with your horse, then you're not completely enjoying your horse and your horse is not enjoying you.

I take what now would be called a unique approach to training. I believe that the only ground work that a horse needs is to be taught to lead which should be done when a horse is still a foal. When I receive a horse in for training, it is saddled and mounted, (believe it or not, only about 1 in 60 horses ever go to bucking). Due to the fact I stay relaxed, the horse relaxes too. Therefore, it keeps the tension low key. I am a firm believer that a horse needs trained, not broke. I want a horse that wants to make the choice to ride for me
