My lessons are positive with the wellbeing of the horse and safety of the rider primary concerns. I tailor the goals to the riders riding lifestyle be it competition, trail, pleasure or western.
Elizabeth Johnson has a gift for quickly assessing both the horse and rider in determining what each needs to bring out the best in each other! Great teacher!
She is incredibly intuitive when it comes to horses. Dressage is a way of life. She is wonderful with beginners. She is the instructor you need to help you reach your riding goals and realize your dreams in this discipline.
Instructs to the level of the student and/or horse in clear, upbeat manner; makes the student work hard in a positive way.
Elizabeth is a very versatile instructor, who can help riders of any level. She focuses on improving basic horsemenship and the rider's ability to school their own horse. She maintains a safe and structured learning environment at all times. I have been with her for three years and my understanding of proper techique, as well as competition results have improved steadily under her direction.
I spend time assessing the rider and horse at the beginning of the lesson program and work toward the individual rider's goals and capabilities with the horse as an individual in mind.
I have been riding and teaching dressage for over 40 years. I have been fortunate to be able to work with top trainers over the years as well as raising my daughters in the sport. I have my USDF bronze and silver medals. My clients who choose to show are confident and successful. My older daughter won 2008 Young Rider Championship.
