Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
It really depends on where the student is in their riding/horsemanship career. I'm willing to go as slow as the rider wants in order to build the confidence necessary to be succesful with their goals in horsemanship.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I've helped and train dozens of horses for owners and friends. I've worked with breaking in BLM mustangs to even helping owners with their horse break through some barriers they are having trouble attaining.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
Yes, $55/hr with a 2/hr minumum
How did you get started teaching?
I've been teaching for awhile now. I believe it's important to help mentor the upcoming generations. I've had great role models/teachers in my life and I wanted to pay it back!
What types of students have you worked with?
Most of the students I've worked with are riders who have had bad wrecks on horses they shouldn't have been riding in the first place. I work on building up their confidence and show them the fun side of horsemanship.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
A recent event I'm fond of is I had some kids come up from big brothers and big sisters. I taught them a bit about horses and then gave them a trail ride so they could feel what it's like to ride on a horse. It's always interesting to see which kids take to horses faster than others.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Find a teacher that goes at your pace and gives you the tools to succeed within that realm.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
Students should make a list about what their goals are in whatever they are trying to learn from and need to be honest with themselves in setting achievable goals.
