    Elizabeth is professional and relatable. She understands the psychology of the horse and builds rider’s confidence through clear process of learning. She has taught me so much about riding and working in partnership with my horses over the years! I love taking lessons from her!

    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.

    Elizabeth is a very versatile instructor, who can help riders of any level. She focuses on improving basic horsemenship and the riders 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 started training with Elizabeth back in 1984. She is a superb trainer and very positive in her training. I think she is definitely one of the best around and I highly recommend her!!

    Frequently asked questions

    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.
