My Training Philosophy
Training horses is my greatest passion. I take only eight horses at time, so that each horse will receive my full attention. I personally ride all of my full training horses five days per week and personalized programs often include: cavelleti work, lunging days, hacking out/trail riding and more, in order to produce happy athletes in our equine partners. Parallel to the training, all horses are turned out on grass pasture seven days a week.
I enjoy working with all types of horses, and have trained and competed with a wide range of breeds including the Warmbloods, such as Hanoverians, Holsteiners and German Riding Ponies as well as the Baroque breeds: Andalusians, Lusitanos, Lipizzanners and Friesians. Each horse is an individual, so I design a program to fit each horse's needs and personality.
I enjoy working with horses at all stages of their dressage training. and riders of any level are welcome to my program. It is my greatest joy to facilitate a true bond between horse and rider based on a willing partnership..
