About this pro

Dressage instruction from beginning Dressage-Grand Prix for adult amateurs, junior/young riders and pros. Travel to you or boarding options available at barn in Wellington with covered arena. Trailer in lessons and short term board/training options are also available. Also available to teach clinics at your location! Lesson packages available which offer a discount over the single rate. 

I have a teaching style that’s highly effective while also being positive, encouraging and confidence building. I’m patient with my students and do not believe in yelling or being demeaning. At the same time I have a unique ability to help my students progress quickly and to find solutions for tough issues that are blocking their progress.  

I have a passion for teaching and I enjoy working with riders of all levels whether it be someone new to Dressage who’s just starting out or a Grand Prix rider! I love bringing out the best in my students and helping them to reach their goals and beyond!

FAQs


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

The first lesson I spend a bit of extra time so we can talk and discuss your needs and goals. I’m always very open to questions from a student and I make time at the end of a lesson to answer questions. 


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

USDF bronze, silver & gold medalist. Competed 2x at NAYRC as a young rider winning 2 team silver medals. Earned my USDF gold medal at age 21. Reserve Champion at 2006 Grand Prix National Championship for riders under age 25. International Grand Prix competitor. Experience training and coaching riders of all ages and levels from those just starting in Dressage-Grand Prix. 


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

Pricing options are available on either a per lesson basis or lesson packages. Lesson packages offer a discount over the single lesson rate. This includes lessons either at Everglades Dressage location or Bethany traveling to your barn. If you don't have your own horse Bethany is able to assist with either partial or full lease options of a suitable horse for you to have your lessons on. 

You can also board your horse at our facility in Wellington. We have a beautiful covered arena with mirrors and provide top quality care for your horse! Center aisle barn with overhead fans on each 12’ x 12’ stall, air conditioned tack room and storm doors for hurricane season. Riding is always possible underneath the covered arena even during the hot and rainy summer months! Pricing varies depending on whether you want basic or full service board. 

Also accepting short term board stays during the off season (summer & fall). Come for lessons with your horse for a week or two, or even just a few days! Prices vary depending on the length of your stay and number of lessons. 


What types of students have you worked with?

Every age from juniors-older adult riders. All levels from those just starting to learn Dressage through Grand Prix, and every level in between!  Adult amateurs, junior/young riders and pros. 


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

Schedule a first “trial” lesson and see how it goes before you make a commitment to a regular lesson schedule or training program. Take time before and during that first lesson to discuss your needs and goals, and to ask any questions you have. Also make sure you feel the trainer's teaching style and methods are a good fit for you and your horse. 

I always make extra time to talk with a new student and make sure they know I’m open to answer any questions they have! I’m a believer in the saying “there’s no dumb questions” and always encourage questions from my students. 


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

Make sure to be open with the trainer about your needs and goals. If you have specific goals whether they be show related or anything else, be sure to ask the trainer how they feel about your goals and ask their ideas for how they would approach a training program that will help you to achieve these goals. If you've had any falls or situations that have caused you fear issues when riding be sure to let the trainer know and ask them if they're willing to accommodate your needs such as a program that will help build your confidence up in a patient manner.
