I provided lessons to people of all ages and all levels. Anyone who wants to learn from the most basic of horses all the way through jumping. I teach English and Western and you need to horse knowledge to start. It's an easy going friendly environment that is accepting of all leveled riders. 

If you have your own horse and would like me to review videos of your riding, I can review your videos and either email you what I see and what you can work on our I can have a phone call with you.

FAQs


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

Start with one lesson from me and decided if we are a good fit! No pressure to come back of you don't like it and if you do we can set you up in a lesson schedule!

I will teach at personal property but I will not teach at other barns that have a lesson program. 


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

I've been riding for almost 15 year now and went through the CHA program at the age of 17. I've been teaching for about 7 years and I'm always growing my education ask the time to give myself and my student the safest and fun experience possible. I'm focused on the safety of both horse and rider and want you to have fun with the animals.

How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching at a Girl Scout camp when I was 16 teaching girls how to ride and truly connect with the horses. After joining the military I have stepped into a mostly one on one lessons but a few group lessons as well. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have student that have never touched a horse all the way through students that have been jumping 2' come to me for lessons. I have also taught Western lessons and will do small group trail rides with the right group. 


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

Look for someone you are comfortable with and has your goals in mind. One that asked what your experience is and what your are wanting to learn. Someone who is willing to make future plans for you and wants you to be safe and have fun. You may not be there first person you take lessons with but be open with your instructor about how you feel about the lesson and their teaching style.


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

Do some research and pick at least two different things you are interested. Something that you will be able to grow to. Don't expect to be jumping two lessons in if you have never been around horse before but have an idea of what interests you.
