What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Start from the hoof up. Understanding horse health, thought process and proper horsemanship is essential to gaining trust. Trust equals safety. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Lots of lessons learned the hard way plus years of different trainers, books, etc. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Standard $50 per hour OR discounts earned by mucking. Mucking is just walking around with the horses and raking up, it's fun. 

How did you get started teaching?

Someone asked me to help them. I was able to teach them so I have continued. 

What types of students have you worked with?

From know nothing to know it all. :) 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Taught a colt to bow. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Trust your gut. There are a lot of unkind horse/human trainers. Learning should be fun. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What is the process of learning my new skill? 
Don't expect to be doing mounted archery on day one. It's a craft that takes time.
