Instruction

Philosophy

My passion is  teaching!  I am a certified USDF Instructor through 4th level, who has been teaching students of all levels for over 35 years.  Additionally, I have a riding instructor's teaching certificate from Colorado State University Instructor's program in Western and English riding. 

 

My teaching philosophy is "correct classical training of the horse with clarity and kindness for both horse and rider."  My students range from USDF Bronze, Silver, and Gold medalists, who are now instructors themselves to students, particularly adult amateurs who just want to learn more about equine harmony.  I teach all levels of riding as long as the student wants to learn, is willing to work, and wants to have fun! Available for Dressage, Western Dressage, and combined training.
