About this pro

I am a Rider, Trainer, Instructor and Coach with over 20 years experience with horses.

My professional experience has been gained from across the globe and under international level trainers, creating a unique personal approach that will help any horse or rider regardless of background or discipline.

As an Instructor, I personally work with each student to help them achieve their individual athletic best. I push but I also motivate. Early on, I identify what they are capable of, with my goal being to help them reach, then exceed, that potential.

My lessons can be in groundwork, riding, or horsemanship & horse husbandry. All lessons and sessions are with my own re-purposed sporthorses, who I have personally trained as teaching and therapy horses.

In our lessons, my goal is not just to help you become a better rider, but to help you become a better horseman. Through a variety of exercises and challenges, each lesson we will work to improve your technique, skill, confidence, understanding, and passion. Enjoyment and progress are the key objectives, whatever your starting point and end goals may be.

As a Coach for therapeutic equine experiences, my technique is relaxed, non-judgmental, and positive. I am not here to tell you I have all the answers. I am here to help you find your strengths, discover possibilities, develop skills and coping mechanisms, and to assist you on the path to a happier healthier life.

I love working with horses - I strive every day to improve my horsemanship, and to help others improve theirs. I enjoy teaching both horse riding and groundwork, and helping others develop their passion for horses and the sport of riding. Horses teach me something every day. A passion of mine is equine communication and management - what they are telling us, and how we can provide the best partnership with them. Horses are amazing for therapeutic activities and to assist in holistic coaching. They do not judge, they simply reflect what we are feeling and projecting in terms of energy and emotion. They provide a mirror to help you investigate yourself - your needs, your strengths and weaknesses. That allows you to set goals and find the right to path to accomplish them in the pursuit of health and happiness.
